BREAKING: Sean Avery Arrested in California


Sean Avery (

Multiple outlets are reporting that early this morning Rangers winger Sean Avery was arrested at his California home and charged with battery of a police officer. The battery charge is a misdemeanor. Avery’s bail was set at $20,000.

TMZ has also picked up the story and the excerpt below goes in to more detail from this morning’s arrest:

According to law enforcement sources, a neighbor called police to complain about the noise coming from Avery’s home. When police arrived at about 1:00 AM, we’re told Avery answered the door … then shoved a cop and slammed the door behind him.

Police then knocked again, and we’re told Avery came to his senses and opened up. According to law enforcement … Avery was extremely cooperative after that, but was still booked for battery on a peace officer.

Very shocking news to wake up to. All the facts haven’t been presented but the one fact remains Avery put his hands on a police officer. There is absolutely so reason to do that; it’s inexcusable. Speculation will begin as to how the Rangers will handle this. While Avery is a pest on the ice, this is the first time I can remember him getting into serious trouble off the ice. Does this cost him his spot on the team? Not likely but only time will tell…
