Bucks investigating claims after partygoers become ill

As the Milwaukee Bucks prepare for their first appearance in the Eastern Conference Finals since 2001, team officials are investigating claims that drinks were spiked at a party this week outside of their home arena, Fiserv Forum.

According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, team spokesperson Barry Baum confirmed the investigation in the interest of “safety.”

Milwaukee’s WISN-TV reported that six people became ill or “blacked out” after consuming alcoholic beverages. Multiple people reported that drinking “Moscow Mules” gave them adverse side effects not compatible with a typical alcoholic beverage.

The party took place in an outdoor tented area adjacent to the arena after the Bucks completed their 4-1 series victory against the Boston Celtics.

Milwaukee police said they did not receive any complaints from partygoers about spiked drinks. The newspaper said a check of area hospitals reported no visits from individuals that became ill from events at Fiserv Forum.
