Default Re: Penguins Hire Assistant Coach

"TURKEY POINT, Ontario (AP) — Pittsburgh Penguins right wing Ryan VandenBussche was charged with assaulting three police officers during a late-night brawl and was subdued with a Taser gun and pepper spray.

VandenBussche hit one officer near the left eye, smacked another in the left ear and tried to strike a third early Monday, police said. He will be held in a Brantford jail until Thursday.

Ontario Provincial Police Constable Mark Foster says VandenBussche “apparently came to the rescue of a friend” who was being arrested.
Police say the 33-year-old player threatened the life of one officer after the fight outside a hotel in Turkey Point, southwest of Hamilton.

VandenBussche, who lives south of London, Ontario, is charged with three counts of assaulting a peace officer. He also is charged with obstructing and/or resisting a peace officer, and making a threat to cause death or bodily harm."
