NHL's Sean Avery accused of shoving LA officer
LOS ANGELES (AP)
Lt. Jorge Pardo tells City News Service that a neighbor's noise complaint sent police to the home at around 1 a.m. Friday. Pardo says Avery answered the front door, shoved an officer and slammed the door but cooperated when officers knocked a second time.
The officer wasn't injured.
The 31-year-old hockey player was booked on suspicion of battery on a police officer. He was released about seven hours later after posting $20,000 bail.
The Rangers say they'll discuss the matter with Avery and have no immediate comment.
