The Milwaukee Bucks issued a statement Sunday night regarding an investigation into alcoholic drinks purchased at the Deer District outside Fiserv Forum on Wednesday.

Bucks officials were asked about reports the drinks might have been spiked.

The Milwaukee Bucks statement reads;

"To ensure a safe experience for every guest, we have been conducting a thorough investigation. Our initial investigation has not revealed any foreign substance added to the Moscow Mule beverage batch. Additionally, out of an abundance of caution we are proactively engaging an independent accredited laboratory to ensure the accuracy of our initial investigatory findings and have sent a sample to the Milwaukee Police Department. Until the investigation is complete, we have removed all pre-batched cocktails from our menus and are conducting additional trainings to reinforce safe alcohol service for all employees."

Milwaukee Police told TODAY'S TMJ4 they have not received any reports of anyone being drugged around Fiserv Forum during the time period in question.
