NHL Star Accused of Punching Woman in Nightclub

1/22/2011 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Toronto Maple Leafs all-star Mike Komisarek is on thin ice with the LAPD -- after the hockey player allegedly punched a woman in the face at an L.A. nightclub earlier this month ... TMZ has learned.

0121_Mike-Komisarek-getty

Law enforcement sources tell us ... the 28-year-old defensive powerhouse was named in a police report filed by a woman who claims the whole thing went down after Komisarek decided to lift her up in the air at a Hollywood nightclub.

We're told the woman claims she demanded Komisarek put her down -- but he refused -- so she slapped him in the face.

The woman claims Komisarek immediately set her down ... and then punched her in the face, causing her to bleed. 

The woman claims Komisarek left the club ... so she went to the cops. We're told investigators are hoping to speak with the NHL star as soon as they get the chance.

So far, no comment from Komisarek's camp.

This kills me - I only had to go through 2 pages of "comments" to see how it was all going to unfold.

Fact #1 - this is TMZ, so you just *know* not everything is going to be reported... Things will be pared down specifically to elicit the reactions as have been demonstrated here. Was it even *bothered* to be looked into how the minutes or hours before this "incident" occurred could have contributed to Komisarek thinking it was okay to pick her up in the first place? I mean - I'm no Rico Suave, but I've been victim to false signals from women at bars too - never hit them, but ended up on the bad end of a slap from someone I thought was "interested".

Fact #2 - everyone trashing Komisarek in these comments are women, with the odd sprinkling of Leaf haters... and they're doing it without the FULL story. I wonder how many of those women (including the guys being TML haters) trashing Komisarek have thought they were entitled to strike someone with no expectation of retaliation. ESPECIALLY in a night club, where there is booze involved and a drastically lowered sense of inhibitions and restraint.

Fact #3 - Komisarek *picked her up*. The story (and subsequent comments) make it sound like he was trying to publicly rape the girl. Get a grip on reality, FFS. As an NHL player (I, too, disagree with the "star" moniker) Komisarek is well aware of the consequences swatting a woman without just cause will bring. He's a dumb player, but he's not dumb entirely.

Consider your sources (in this case - TMZ, a reputed "tabloid" service... sheesh!) before you start judging. Komisarek is a moron when he's on the ice - but I doubt he's so moronic that he's going to jeopardize the cushy (overpaid) paycheck he's collecting for something this public.

ok this is simple... he hit a girl... the girl was most likely drunk, talking trash and yes she did hit him... was he wrong to punch her in the face... yes no one is really disputing that... but who here is DUMB enough to hit a 6 foot 4 245 pound guy in the face.... I MEAN COME ON! and i do think she was responsible for him picking her up.... why would he do it if she wasnt flirting with him and leading him on in that way.... he isnt some freak who just walks over from across the room and says,"me Mike me SO STRONG ROAR!!!" like people get a clue... it doesnt go 1 2 skip a few 99 100 there is stuff that happens in between that these attention seeking (was going to use a profanic term but chose agaisnt it) women either cause or instigate.... if anyone is at fault it is her mother for not teaching her not to put herself in such a REDICULOUS situation.... also if he had punched her.... there would have been much more than just blood.... remember 6 foot 4 245pounds... yea story sound a little made up....

... Seriously?
Sure, it's unfortunate that it happened and that two adults can't behave themselves, but then again what do I expect from something like TMZ. This is essentially two inebriated people scuffling which can be seen at any night club, any day, all the time.

Take the report with a grain of salt... I mean their first line calls Komisarek an all-star. Someone probably should have done their research.

Shows how ridiculous the LAPD are. This happened TWO weeks ago and it took TMZ reporting it for the guy that did the punching to find out about it? Seems like he didnt even know a police report had been filed about it! He shouldve been arrested immediately!

Here's what i don't get...

she's going to have to claim she didn't know who he was or claim that she's a total idiot!

I'm not condoning the violence, but he's an NHL denfenseman, his JOB is retaliation and once slapped i bet he didnt think twice about it, but she's probably an american so she knows little about hockey and how the sport is actually played.

I'm willing to wager that like all the rest of the women who have been suing and putting the screws to every male public figure lately was just doing it to get her name in the tabloids and her 15 minutes of fame.

And... speaking as a woman, WHY is it women think it's ok to slap a guy in the face, but it's not alright for him to retaliate? right, it was a supposed "punch" i get that... but it it NOT alright for anyone to hit ANYONE, PERIOD! apparently this bitch never heard of the "walk away rule"

if people like her are going to continue to ruin sports, i'm going to continue to hate them :P

Squeaky, he picked her up against her will FIRST. Did you read the article? When she asked to be put down and he REFUSED is when she slapped him. Thats self-defense. As a previous poster said, girl probably had a dress on and her panties showing for the whole world to see. HE initiated. He had absolutely NO right to PUNCH her in the face. I hope she sues.

the one main reason i believe she is lying or tmz is reaching for attention:

in what universe would NO ONE HELP or immediately call the cops if a woman was full on punched in the face by a man on this stature?

i've seen all-out riots start just because a woman is pissed at a man for hitting on another woman in a bar, many people get bounced for getting involved.
If this was really what happened, it would have ended in a 3 ring circus! there is NO way, everyone would have just ignored the situation and let him walk away...

so all you bitchy feminists, who give the rest of us a bad name by jumping to MAN-HATING conclusions all the time, just do the rest of us a favour and sew your lips shut... BOTH SETS

what we really need less of, is idiot women feminist a-holes who i'm surprised ever find a man to marry them.

I'm a woman who loves: men, sex, cars, HOCKEY, and video games, and i am getting tired of reading about all these little "rainbow circles" of women who jump at the first opportunity to drag a man through the mud. Like this April for instance who seems to think all men are p'u's's'i'e's, and yet is somehow miraculously engaged... to whom? a momma's basement nerd yes man who loves to be dragged around by the balls all day by some nasty feministic bitch? HA!

I'm with Len on this one. Mike Komisarek is a pilon on skates. This guy is NO all-star defenseman. He's a brutal hockey player. This guy gets paid $5 million bucks a year to take stupid penalties and give the puck away. Biggest waste of money. I hope he goes to jail so he's not on our blue line anymore. Good riddance.

First off... what police report? all i see is it ALLEGEDLY happening AT A NIGHTCLUB!

who gives a rats ass WHERE it happened... there were other people around, it's not like her and komisarek were invisible to everyone, and no one else saw a thing... this isn't a harry potter movie!

it's an L.A. nightclub, there are hundreds of people around inside OR OUTSIDE a friggen nightclub!

if some a-hole punched ME in the face, provided i was even counscious after being hit in the face by an NHL defenseman, my FIRST reaction would have been to call the police!

not to mention the fact that if i don't like something a guy is doing, i verbally call out for help, especially in a bar with plently of men looking to be a night in shining armour... NOT to slap him! i don't condone violence on either side, but these dumb bitches who think the best way to get a point across to someone male or female, is to SLAP? get a clue
