Blackhawks Prodigy Suspended Indefinitely After 'Revenge Porn' Allegations

Breaking News

0323-garret-ross-getty-01The Chicago Blackhawks have announced they've suspended Garret Ross -- after learning he's being prosecuted in an alleged revenge porn case.

TMZ Sports broke the story ... the 23-year-old -- who's currently playing for Chicago's minor league affiliate -- was charged with one felony count of "non-consensual dissemination of private sexual images" ... more commonly known as revenge porn.

Officials say back in August, Ross shared a photo of a woman "engaged in a sexual act, which was obtained under circumstances which Ross should have known the image was to remain private."

The Blackhawks have now issued a statement saying, "On Saturday afternoon, March 19, 2016, the Chicago Blackhawks and Rockford IceHogs learned of a legal proceeding against a IceHogs player Garret Ross."

"At that time, we excused Garret from team activities pending our preliminary review of the matter."

"After further review, we have determined to suspend Garret indefinitely pending the outcome of the legal process. Because this is a pending legal proceeding, we will have no further comment at this time."'
