Sean Avery

NHL Star Taunted Police

'FAT LITTLE PIGS'

8/5/2011 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Sean Avery
NHL
star Sean Avery challenged cops to a FIGHT when they responded to his Hollywood Hills home this morning ... calling them, "Fat little pigs" ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

We're told cops were dispatched to the home over a complaint about loud music -- and when they arrived to Avery's pad, the hockey star was NOT happy to see them.

Sources tell us 31-year-old Avery immediately began running his mouth at the cops -- telling them he would fight all of them ... even challenging them to, "Come back without your badges."

During the incident, Avery -- who famously dated Elisha Cuthbert a while back -- allegedly shoved an officer and slammed the front door on the cops.

We're told cops began speaking with Avery through the door -- and warned him that if he didn't open the door, they would break it down. That's when Avery decided to open up and cooperate. 

As TMZ first reported, Avery was hauled to a nearby station and booked for battering a peace officer.  He has since been released after posting bail.

Somehow this doesn't surprise me. He is an ahole on the ice and off the ice. I just hope for the day someone shuts his mouth for good.

Sean Avery, NHL player in the Hollywood Hills. Treat him like a human being deserving of professionalism and respect, despite bad behavior in the moment.

Kelly Thomas, a poor, vulnerable Californian from Fullerton. Brutally take his life if he resists our authoritai!

Wake up America. Economic oppression is on your doorstep! Just ask Matt Damon!

Good riddance!    

If a black person had done the same thing, the cops probably would have just shot thru the door without warning. If Lindsay Lohan did the same thing, the cops would be forced to apologize and would have been told by a judge to bring her some confiscated coke from the property locker to make up for the hassle. This douche will probably get off with a $2 fine for being a tool because the Cali justice system blows...assss.

He technically doesn't have to answer the door. I'm guessing the peace officer never returned without their badges. There isn't much behind the mace, tazer and gun.

Hey TMZ -

You should do a story on Matt Damon basically BEGGING YOUR POLITICIANS TO DO THE RIGHT THING AND RAISE TAXES ON THE WEALTHIEST AMERICANS...IE: HIMSELF!

Unlike the Kelly Thomas story you can't claim it's not celebrity news...and HEY...the story would actually be meaningful to YOUR COUNTRY and READERS to boot!!!!

That is why nobody in the NHL respects this guy. He likes to run his mouth.
