Pro hockey players AJ Greer and Sonny Milano were arrested this weekend for allegedly beating up a guy … this after the dude reportedly complained about a restaurant check.
The two players — who play for the Colorado Avalanche and Columbus Blue Jackets, respectively — were taken into custody early Sunday morning in NYC and booked for assault. We’re told they were both given desk appearance tickets, and are due in court at a later date.
According to reports, the altercation took place at a Manhattan apartment where a 28-year-old man claims they punched and kicked him. Some outlets are reporting that the guy was pissed about a bill from just hours earlier at 1 OAK, where the NHL players had been.
It’s unclear what his gripe might’ve been, but he reportedly suffered jaw and rib pain, as well as injuries to his neck and bicep … and refused medical attention after calling cops.
The Blue Jackets released a statement about Milano, saying they’re aware of the situation and will be reviewing the facts without further comment.
The Avalanche has yet to say anything about Greer.
