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.

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.

he shouldnt have picked her up in the first place and put her down when she wanted to be put down. was it extreme for her to slap him yes,but for him to turn around and hit her back, come on, im sure theres a huge size and strengh difference between the two. he should of walked away and had her kicked out of the club.

If Komisarek had hit this woman deliberately she would have been in a coma for a week. Just another example of someone setting an athlete/movie star up for a lawsuit. Ridiculous!

Wow... a lot of the commentors here sure are pigs! Yes, she hit him first, but only after he picked her up and refused to let her go! What else was she supposed to do? She TOLD him to put her down and he didn't so she was within her rights to DEFEND herself from this ape man who was acting like he could do whatever he damn well pleased with her against her wishes. He had NO ****ing right to treat this woman like she were some kind of rag doll. Did he even KNOW her or did he just pick some random woman to show off with? Either way, she didn't like what he was doing and he had no right to do it. HE was the aggressor here, not her. He's a bully, plain and simple.

Sorry to all you losers who would love to think that this is justifiable behavior, but it's NOT "self-defence" for this creep to hit a woman who was trying to defend herself from HIM in the first place!

Point blank, HE should never have put HIS hands on HER to begin with! If you really believe that this woman deserved a punch in the face just for trying to defend herself from this muscle-brained idiot who was harassing her (and ignoring her requests for him to stop), you need some serious help... I feel sorry for all your girlfriends/wives (assuming you even HAVE any)! You've got serious issues with women and violence.

Sorry to disappoint all you losers who are obviously looking for any excuse to see a man get away with hitting a woman, but it's not "self-defence" for him to hit a woman who was only trying to defend herself from HIM to begin with! Point blank, HE should never have put his hands on HER in the first place! If you really believe that this woman deserved a punch in the face just for trying to defend herself from this muscle-brained idiot who was harassing her (and ignoring her requests for him to stop), you need some serious help... quite frankly, I feel sorry for all your girlfriends/wives (assuming that you even HAVE any)!

What a joke!

Mike Komisarek is not this type of person, there is no video evidence she is some drug sniffing bitch looking for a free paycheck get a job.

American women are ****ed in the head...Personaly I hope he did cold-**** her....women wanted equal rights. if your gonna put your hands on someone you should be prepared for the consequences...

Keep your hands to yourself N'uff said.....

But as I said above Komi is not that type of guy, I'm a Leaf fan..I see him with the media all the time he calm and a very nice person.

Ear a **** America

One more thing, and this is for Anonymous.....How do you even know he picker her up?

Because she said he did! How do we know he didn't go over there and try and talk to her and she slapped him for maybe trying to hard....?

People need to realize that people do this all the time just for a free ride...that's what I think the case is here.

Damian either way he shouldnt have hit her, common sense he can do a lot more damage, he's a well built man. None of us were there, so its hard to say if he definitly lifted her up or not. BUT if he DID lift her up against her will, she had every right to hit him after say she wanted to be put down and he refused to place her down.

First off, a "star" player is a huge over-statement. They should trade his ass...just shows you how serious they are about the team when their out dancing at clubs...what a joke he is...the habs let him go for a reason! His defensive play is poor at best!

That's so unlike Komisarek - everyone in the town where he used to play knows him for being one of the nicest/kindest people. If it's true, it's pretty shocking.

Ok this so called incident happened 2 weeks ago when the Leafs were out in Los Angeles and now it's being reported by a 3rd rate gossip site like TMZ and none of the Toronto sports media outlets never knew about when they cover the Leafs 24/7. I say this girl got hit is lying and trying to get money out of it.

Gotta love the double standard. A girl can hit a guy and there's no problem yet if a guy hits a girl he should be in jail. Yes I agree that 9 times out of 10 that a man is much stronger than a women, and no I don't think a man should hit a women, but a women should not hit a man either.

To the brainless girls that like to whale away at guys and think they should never be hit back:

Do you think it is okay to beat on a quadriplegic? No? Well why not? Because they are defenseless right? Okay good, makes sense. But then you smash a guy in the face that isn't allowed to hit you back, what does that make him? Defenseless? Exactly. So if you see nothing wrong with hitting a guy while believing that he can't or shouldn't hit you back, then you should see nothing wrong with putting a beat down on a quadriplegic.

Good day.

Really? Because I think any man that feels the need to retaliate against a woman who is just protecting herself is a real loser who's probably never even been in a fight with another man. He can only fight the ladies.

I read that HE picked HER up and REFUSED to put her down when she asked. He deserved to have his eyeball gouged out of his head if that's the case. At least then she could have gotten away before he could commit another assault on her.

To the real men on this board who understand the basic idea that it's wrong to manhandle and/or hit a woman, thank you. I was losing hope reading some of the more moronic comments on this board.
