NHL’s Sean Avery accused of shoving LA officer
New York Rangers player Sean Avery is out on bail after he was
arrested in California on allegations he shoved an officer at his
Hollywood Hills home.
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.
