Rangers Player Sean Avery Arrested For Shoving A Police Officer

LOS ANGELES (AP) — 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.
