NHL Bad Boy Sean Avery

ARRESTED FOR SHOVING

A COP

8/5/2011 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sean Avery Arrested
NHL star Sean Avery was arrested early this morning after he shoved a police officer who was trying to break up a loud party at his home in the Hollywood Hills ... TMZ has learned.

According to law enforcement sources, a neighbor called police to complain about the noise coming from Avery's home. When police arrived at about 1:00 AM, we're told Avery answered the door ... then shoved a cop and slammed the door behind him. 

Police then knocked again, and we're told the New York Rangers star came to his senses and opened up. According to law enforcement ... Avery was extremely cooperative after that, but was still booked for battery on a peace officer.

He was taken to the Hollywood police station and is being held on $20,000 bail. 

UPDATE: Avery was released at 8:10 AM and is scheduled to appear in court on September 2.

Ugh, the only reason this story is getting so much attention is because it's Sean Avery, the "bad boy" of the NHL. Would this have been all over the news as much had it been someone else?
=========================
Um no, Lisa. The reason it's on here is because TMZ covers all KINDS of douchey athletes. Hockey doesn't get a pass here, like it does in the MSM. The MSM would rather us celebrate the thuggishness of the NFL and NBA players. Nice to see proof that it's not limited to just the aforementioned leagues.

Rich Vs. Poor in America.....

If Sean Avery was a homeless man named KELLY THOMAS, he gets beaten to a pulp for that.

Quite possibly, to death.

Don Cherry on Avery: "I've known this kid since he was about 16 years old; Once a jerk, always a jerk."

I still like him and would rather have him on my team than anyone else's. He should try a bit more to cooperate with the authorities... It would make his life a lot easier.

You see a NHL player do something stupid once every few years, NFL and NBA players are always getting shot or shooting someone. This just doesn't seem so bad yet everyone is calling him names.
