The Orlando Magic acknowledged Tuesday that Glen Davis, a team co-captain in the 2012/13 season, was involved in an incident at an Orlando-area hotel early Saturday morning. In a video which TMZSports.com obtained, Davis is seen throwing a computer keyboard in the lobby after an employee told him that no rooms were available.

According to TMZ, police arrived on the scene but did not arrest the Magic big man.

"I am aware of [the incident]," Magic coach Jacque Vaughn said before Tuesday's practice. "We're aware of the situation as an organization and that's something that we're going to handle internally."

Davis himself posted an apology in a series of tweets Tuesday.

"In regards to the incident that occurred on Friday night, I want to sincerely apologize for my actions. There is no excuse for what I did," Davis wrote in the first message. He continued by saying, "I was obviously wrong and I take full responsibility. I apologize to the Magic, my fans and the city of Orlando."

Davis has yet to play in 2013/14 owing to a broken fifth metatarsal in his left foot. Team doctors have cleared him for practice, but the LSU product said on November 2nd, "I gotta take my time." There is no official timetable for his return to the floor.
