Chicago Blackhawks Star

POLICE INVESTIGATION

Goalie Allegedly Sprayed Heckler with Water Bottle

EXCLUSIVE

0527_cory_crawford_gettyChicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford is under investigation by the LAPD after allegedly squirting a heckler in the face with a water bottle during Monday's Game 4 loss to the Kings ... TMZ Sports has learned.

We know ... 27-year-old Kings fan Clark Wong filed a BATTERY report Monday night claiming he was "sprayed" by the hockey player at Staples Center. 

TMZ Sports spoke with Wong who says he was sitting behind the Blackhawks bench -- and was heckling Crawford -- when the goalie was pulled from the game toward the end of the 3rd period. 

That's when Crawford -- who's in the middle of a 6-year, $36 MILLION contract -- allegedly whipped out a water bottle and blasted him right in the face. 

Wong says he believes the bottle was filled with backwash -- along with water -- and it has caused serious irritation to his eyes. Wong says he's going to a doctor to get his eyes checked. 

League sources tell TMZ Sports ... Wong was ejected from the game 3 to 5 minutes after the spraying incident for "taunting the players" and it was while he was being escorted out of the arena that he began to rub his eyes, complaining about the pain. 

We're told Wong filed a report with police before leaving the arena. 

We spoke with LAPD Media Relations spokesperson Sally Madera who tells us, "A battery report was taken and the incident is under investigation."

We reached out to Crawford's camp for comment. So far, no word back. For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

There's no backwash in there you idiot!! When was the last time you saw a hockey player sip from a cup? They avoid mouth contact with bottles completely by squirting water/Gatorade straight into their mouths..... Idiot

Lol. Another fvck wit looking for his 15min and a payday for some free money. Water bottles are squirted in the mouth. There is virtually no contact from the mouth. This is why athletes need to ignore the heckling dbags and keep their frustration inside until they hit the locker room and can destroy a trash can or scream like a banshee.

So this is what the LAPD spends its time on? Investigating people for throwing eggs and squirting water bottles. Impressive. Just like the coward Wong, who taunts professional athletes from the safety of his seat behind the glass and now is whining like the little b*tch that he is because Crawford got the best of him. What a pathetic little douche.

Technically calling a person a name in an aggressive fashion is assault. Once Crawford was out of the game, he was no longer an active player, but a spectator. This Wong character is then making aggressive hurtful language toward another spectator, which puts him at fault. Crawford has a right to defend himself and I think he did it in a classy enough fashion. He COULD have hit him with a goal stick, but he sprayed him with water instead.

I wish I had that kind of restraint after a bad day at work.

BIG HAWKS FAN    

well if it is true that Corey did spray him with water then corey can turn around and file a complaint against this guy for bullying. Also obviously the fan was not paying attention because the water bottles have a spigot on it and you can't get backlash in the water bottle DUH

This story is fake, it is almost IMPOSSIBLE to spray a guy named Wong, Wang or Chin in the eyes, unless you are an expert ophthalmologist.
