Claude Giroux arrested for ‘repeatedly grabbing buttocks of male police officer’

Claude-Giroux-FlyersPhiladelphia Flyers star Claude Giroux was reportedly arrested in Ottawa, Canada on Tuesday night when he allegedly got a little handsy with a police officer. And by handsy, we mean Giroux has been accused of grabbing the buttocks of a male officer multiple times.

Danielle Bell of the Ottawa Sun has some of the details:

Although few details were immediately available, a source said Giroux was arrested for repeatedly grabbing the buttocks of a male police officer. Alcohol is believed to have been involved.

A witness and sources say the incident occurred outside The Great Canadian Cabin in the Byward Market club district. They say officers were inside the bar when one officer had his butt grabbed by a patron. The officer told the patron not to behave like that, but was grabbed again. At that point, the patron was taken outside and arrested. The officer involved did not initially recognize Giroux.

Giroux reportedly spent the night in jail, but he is expected to be released on Wednesday without any criminal charges. Hopefully the 26-year-old will only need to be told once the next time he’s grabbing a cop’s butt without permission.

Giroux was third in the NHL in total points last season after scoring 28 goals and notching 58 assists. The Flyers said they are aware of the situation but will withhold comment until more information is known.

Kevin Kolb arrested for boating while drunk

Kevin KolbKevin Kolb apparently operates a boat about as well as he quarterbacks an NFL team.

The free agent quarterback was arrested Saturday in Willacy County, Texas, for boating while intoxicated, 956 Sports reports.

Kolb was released on Sunday on his own recognizance after spending around 10.5 hours in jail.

Kolb was released by the Buffalo Bills in March after missing the season because of concussion problems. He has thrown for 28 touchdowns and 25 interceptions over his NFL career, which has been spent with the Eagles, Cardinals and Bills. Turning 30 before the season, Kolb will probably find some work during the NFL season, but his future does not look good.

Bond reportedly has been set at $1 million cash only this time. Peterson had only recently found out that the child was his son.

Hope Solo’s nephew on 911 call: ‘Hope Solo is going psychotic’

Hope SoloAudio from the 911 call Hope Solo’s nephew made to police during the alleged domestic violence assault early Saturday morning has been released, and it shows how panicked the boy was.

Solo’s 17-year-old nephew has his phone call answered by an operator and gets connected to the police. While he’s waiting to be connected, you can hear him say, “Hope Solo is going psychotic. She’s f—ing beating people up and we need help.”

Solo and the nephew allegedly got into a fistfight after they traded words with each other. Solo allegedly punched her half-sister during the fight as well. She denied the allegations during a court appearance Monday.

Solo previously had a domestic incident with her husband Jerramy Stevens right before they got married. The charges were dropped due to a lack of evidence.

Hope Solo’s nephew says he pulled BB gun during their fight

Hope SoloHope Solo was arrested over the weekend after allegedly hitting her sister and 17-year-old nephew during a fight at a house party and booked on two counts of 4th degree domestic violence assault. Solo’s nephew told police his side of the story, and he says he pulled a BB gun on the soccer goalie to try scaring her away.

According to The Seattle Times, Solo’s nephew told police that his mother, who is Solo’s older half-sister, just began letting Solo back into their lives. Solo supposedly showed up to a party at their home as if she had already been drinking. She was upset that her husband, Jerramy Stevens, was being a jerk and didn’t take her to catch a flight.

At the party, the nephew was talking about how he’s into performing arts and that he believes actors need to get into an athletic state of mind. Solo supposedly put him down after that remark — telling him he could never be a professional athlete — and the two got into a fistfight.

According to TMZ, the nephew walked into a different room to avoid the trash talk with Solo, Hope followed, and they did some name calling.

Solo supposedly called her nephew a p***y for calling his mother to help during the fight (Solo allegedly punch her half-sister in the face).

“I then told her to get her c*nt face out of my house,” the boy supposedly said in response.

Solo supposedly became enraged after that and attacked the boy, grabbing his hair and punching him. He then got an old BB gun in response to try getting her to back away.

“I then went into a back room and got an old gun that not work, pointed it at her and she kept coming at me. She didn’t leave but walked around me cornering me like a shark,” the nephew told police.

The gun didn’t scare away Hope. She only left when he called police, but she still tried coming back into the house. He says he beat her with a broomstick after that but she kept coming after him.

Solo is claiming that she was the victim in the fight.

None of this should come as a surprise; Solo has been a part of multiple incidents over the years and clearly has a temper and short fuse. She got into it with an opposing fan base last month, and she had a notable incident with Stevens two years ago. She is definitely someone you do not want to upset.

Report: LSU safety Jalen Mills punched woman, knocked her out

Jalen-Mills-mug-shotLSU defensive back Jalen Mills was arrested early Wednesday morning and charged with second-degree battery. According to a probable cause report obtained by WAFB in Louisiana, Mills has been accused of punching a woman in the face at his apartment complex last month.

The report stated that the victim, who was identified as a 5-foot-3, 113-pound woman, knocked on the door to Mills’ apartment because she was looking for her friend. Mills allegedly confronted her and closed the door in her face, and she walked away when no one answered her second knock. The woman claimed she then heard someone say something, at which point she turned around and was punched in the face.

A person who witnessed the incident gave the same report as the victim.

The report went on to say that the woman “fell to the pavement and was briefly unconscious” after she was allegedly punched by Mills. She suffered a laceration on her lip that required four stitches.

No bond has been set for Mills. The LSU Sports Information Department announced on Wednesday that Mills has been suspended from the football team indefinitely. Mills was the Tigers third-leading tackler last season with 67 tackles. He was named an All-American cornerback as a freshman in 2012 before moving to safety last year.

Josh Gordon cited for speeding; passenger had marijuana

Josh GordonThis Josh Gordon character is a real winner, I tell you.

The Cleveland Browns wide receiver, who is facing a suspension from the league after reportedly failing another drug test, was cited for speeding over Memorial Day weekend, WKYC reports.

WKYC says Gordon’s Mercedes SUV was clocked going 74 in a 60-mph zone on Sunday night. Marijuana was also found in the car, but luckily for Gordon, one of his boys pulled off a true homie move and claimed it was his.

Gordon essentially has proven that he is addicted to the ganja. He was suspended two games at the start of last season because of a drug violation. He was kicked off Baylor’s team in college for multiple positive drug tests. And then he transferred to Utah but never played, also because he reportedly failed drug tests there, too.

Gordon isn’t doing a lot right these days, but at least we’ll give him credit for making sure he has a weed carrier in his entourage.
