A manager at a Bricktown bar was cited early Sunday on a complaint of allowing a person under 21 in a club after police found an underage Oklahoma City Thunder basketball player inside.

A person flagged down officers about 12:05 a.m. and said Thunder reserve guard James Harden, 20, was inside Roc Bar, 119 E California Ave., according to an Oklahoma City police report released today.

Officers found Harden inside the club and asked him for his identification, and he said it was in his vehicle, according to the report. He provided them with his date of birth.

Officers issued the misdemeanor citation to Nathanial Z. Nold, 30, the report states. Harden was not arrested or cited, records show.

Harden completed his rookie season with the Thunder's playoff series-ending loss Friday to the Los Angeles Lakers. He averaged 9.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 22.9 minutes during 76 regular-season games.
