NHL Bad Boy Sean Avery



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.

If the "peace officer" barged in his home without a warrant, then he has every right to make him leave! "Loud noise" or not, a cop can't go in your home without permission unless there is probable cause of a crime being committed.

No matter what, DON'T TOUCH A COP! You WILL get in trouble.

This guy is easily one of the biggest embarrassments to the NHL, second only to Gary Bettman.

What the hell is going on with TMZ's website? Is anyone else having issues with trying to comment, then it takes you to # 404 error, then you comment again and it either takes the entire 1st comment and leaves things out, so you reply again and then they both show up, blah, blah blah, and yes, I know, I need to get a life :)

He's a dumb, crazy bully. Wonder if he's on drugs or naturally like that.

He thought he could push a cop the way he pushes other NHL players around. He thought wrong.

Lucky for him, they have the VIP Law in California, and he'll get off with 2 lashes with a wet noodle.

Not surpirse from this d-bag. At least he's consistent. D-bag on and off the ice.

don't touch a cop? There are times resistance is definitely warranted. The difference is knowing when that is.

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?
