Video footage of Milwaukee Bucks star Larry Sanders TRYING TO ATTACK PEOPLE WITH A GLASS BOTTLE inside a nightclub has just been released ... and it's insane.
The incident went down inside Apartment 720 nightclub in Milwaukee on Nov. 3 -- and you can clearly see the 6'11" NBA star (wearing some bright pants) violently swinging a bottle at several patrons.
TMZ Sports broke the story ... Sanders was PISSED that someone splashed champagne on him that night and he flipped out.
In the footage, it appears Sanders throws at least 3 glass bottles into the crowd ... as he clumsily slips and slides all over the dance floor. In fact, someone in the club claimed they were gashed open by a flying bottle in the madness and needed stitches to close the wound.
At one point, someone tackles Sanders HARD in an effort to stop the violence.
Sanders dodged serious criminal charges, but he is expected to be cited for assault and battery as well as disorderly conduct.
Sanders injured his thumb in the incident and was scheduled to miss about six weeks after undergoing surgery. Barring any suspension or similar punishment from the league, Sanders should be back on the court later this month.
