Sean Avery

NHL Star Taunted Police


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

Sean Avery
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.

Calls to Avery's rep have not been returned.

Majority of the cops are fat pigs. They should have to be at a particular weight to be on the police force and get paid. I wonder how some of the pigs can even get around fast if they need to. Lets call it as it is.

Sean Avery acts disrespectful wherever he goes. He'll get his punishment, as mandated by US LAW. And he'll alienate himself even further, professionally.

The point is - the public needs to hold police accountable, and to high standards of professionalism NO MATTER who they are dealing with. Hollywood Hills, or Fullerton or...

Police are too often not paid enough, educated enough nor disciplined (mentally strong) enough to effectively hold a job that commands so much authority over the common citizen.

The result is brutish thugs with insecurity problems which fuels their desire to violently enforce their authoritai over a distraught or resistant citizen.

To hear the last words of Kelly Thomas, his wailing for his dad...to watch that video, and know that SIX (6) MEN, a gang of police officers no less, did that in the USA - instead of just arrest the guy...

So sad.

This guy has been a black eye on the sport of hockey for years now. He's a true *******, both on and off the ice and shouldn't be allowed the privilege to play in the NHL. I have no doubt that one day..........he'll get his!

"Fat little pigs" sounds about right

would having a criminal record enable the Rangers to void his remaining contract? We can only hope! He's a criminal already-ineffective on ice unless he's enforcing, and Torts kept him from doing that last season
