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.

When u enage in physical violence it is never good for either party. but if u are the aggressor in this kind of situation you should expect a similar response in return once u have initiated the violence. women slapping or getting physical with men is just as unacceptable as the reverse. moral of the story: "keep your hands to yourself unless your willing to accept the consequences of a retalliation.

bitches want equal rights, no? you wanna be treated the same as a guy? ....if you hit a guy, keep your hands up because a fist should be comin your way pretty ****in quick if you take a swing.

Props to Komi if he did strike her, you cant just be a skank runnin around the bars crying and hitting guys when he denies your ugly ass.

Umm…Feminists…we've only heard from ONE of the two people. The female. Is that all that matters to you. For all we know the woman might have wanted to be picked up, was hitting on the guy, laughing up in the air, who knows?

Person A assaulted and battered Person B.

Person B assaulted and battered Person A afterwards.

You seem to only see the second part.

Reality includes all of what occurred.

Even if the guy gets charged and jailed that is not proof of anything.

Have to hear more info before I can take definitive sides. But I sure wouldn't be surprised to find out there is more to the story. Hockey player in a club is a good target if your looking for someone to get money out of. It sure wouldn't be the first time a person that makes good money was falsely accused.
There was accusations during last years Olympics that Mikhail Grabovski, another player from The Maple Leafs had got into a fight with a couple in a bar and they were trying to sue him. At the time Grabovski was nursing a broken hand that was injured during a game (and not from fighting). Last I heard it didn't sound like they were going to get the big payoff.

In Komisareks case if it took place the way thats alleged then he should be charged accordingly. I have a sneaky suspiscion if there was an assault it was provoked. Where's the video's? There had to be some camera's in there somewhere.

Violence is never the appropriate response. Certainly I would never condone violence against women, just as I would equally not condone it the other way around, I agree if he's charged, she should be too.

Also, Komisarek "was" an all-star, he's certainly no powerhouse or star defenceman.

I'm absolutely disgusted by how many people on here justify a man hitting a woman. I don't give a rats ass if it's 2011..no man should hit a woman. If he picked her up and refused to put her down when she asked, he should have been slapped. HE started it and had no reason to hit her. If she was in his personal as one poster wrote, he could have simply walked away and not started anything physical.

sick sick men out there to think hitting a woman is ok. No wonder our children and world are getting so Fk'd up
