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.

She slapped him first. In my opinion, that makes hitting her self defense.

In the words of Adam West (of Family Guy, anyway)

You don,t hit a woman, period. The most incredulous thing was the article referring to him as a defense powerhouse!

What! A big NHL man who punch a women in the face!? What world are we living in?

If justice would be fair (his well paid lawyers we'll saved him) then insiders prisoners would show him there's a non-written law saying men don't hit women and somebody up there would blow his face by a merit beating.

Men who say it's ok to hit a women, even if she hit first, are only wimp, yellow, minus, no balls, scared bastards.

Komisarek is a piece of ****, even not able to fight in NHL, thinking that money can buy him permission to do whatever he want with women, thinking that money and fame allow it.

I'd take him for a fight anytime and would show him what a real man is but he is too scary of real men and too idiot to realize it.

Jail and a beating would be the only option, but our corrupt system and the idiots who applaused him hitting a women won't let that happen.

No pity for these wimps, jail and a beating please.

When the first thing that I read is that he is an all-star and a defensive power house it makes me wonder how true the rest of the story can be.

Why was she out of the kitchen?

Seriously though, I have to laugh at all the women who automatically assume this is true without thinking about how ridiculous this is.

1. If he had punched her in the face, she would have more than a bloody nose.

2. If he had punched her in the face, at least one person in the bar would have tackled him.

3. His teammates would've gotten involved once said person tackled him.

4. The police probably would've been called on the spot, she wouldn't have had to go to the cops.

5. You can tell that the cops didn't take her seriously because Komisarek would've been arrested that night.

6. It would've been immediate news and a really newspaper would've reported it, not some gossip news site.

7. He's not the kind of guy that would punch any woman in the face.

Need I continue?

And to the woman who said she was probably wearing a dress and everyone could see her underwear my question is if he was holding her that high than how long are her arms to be able to she slap him?

He probably just picked her up like 2 feet off the ground and moved her out of his way because she was annoying, so she slapped him and then made up this story.

@ michelle...again.

Why is it that you assume that he just walked into the bar and ramdomly chose a woman to " Lift up" ?

You're trying to make it look like she wasn't hanging around a bunch of married men and trying to "hook up" , like the other 99% of the population realizes.

And since when doesn't a bunch of married men hang out in bars? I would if i was married to a nutcracker like you.

People need to stop with the crap about him picking her up being an Assault charge. The story states he picked her up, and she asked to be set down, apparently he refuses. Still no assault, and remember this is ALL HER STORY. So who knows if there were any Leprauchauns or Unicorns involed.
