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!

This should never make it to a court. The guy is looking to get paid. he is lucky if he was talking trash right there that all he got was a little water. Stop being a money leech and take what you get if you want to put that out . If you see this Wong guy just punch him in the face.

Let him sue he'll lose . Ban him from going to another NHL game for life. Stupid ass should keep his mouth shut. No doubt a bandwagon fan anyway who doesn't know proper rink etiquette.

Wong has every right to file charges. The goalie should never have sprayed a fan with water. Period.
