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!

Unreal. I hope WONG gets countered with harassment and slander charges.

I hope he gets banned from all NHL games.

His eyes were burning - it was the soy sauce on his fingers when he rubbed his eyes.

What a freaking *****. If you're going to act like an ass don't be surprised when someone decides not to take it anymore. He's lucky he just got sprayed in the face. He deserved to get his ass beat. He sounds like a little bitch.

Must've been Wong's first hockey game then. Look at any goalie drinking and explain to me how any backwash could get in there.
Typical greedy douche going for a fast buck. There should be sanctions to those who abuse the legal system.
