The Boston Bruins introduced that ahead Milan Lucic shall be taking “an indefinite leave of absence” following an alleged incident of home violence.
“The Boston Bruins are aware of an incident involving Milan Lucic Friday evening. Milan is taking an indefinite leave of absence from the team. The organization takes these matters very seriously, and and will work with the Lucic family to provide any support and assistance they may need. We will have no further comment at this time.”
Lucic, 35, spent his first 8 seasons with the Bruins earlier than returning to the membership this season after 8 seasons taking part in for LA, Edmonton and Calgary.
A Boston Police Department spokesman stated he might neither affirm nor deny whether or not any arrest was made and cited public data regulation that allowed the division 10 days to launch any police report on the incident.
The chief data officer for the division, who one other officer on the media workplace informed the Herald is the one one who can deal with this incident, was not engaged on the weekend, so the earliest the data might probably be launched is Monday.
This will not be the primary time Lucic’s been the topic of a an alleged act of home violence.
The veteran participant was questioned by police greater than a decade in the past for a public altercation along with his girlfriend within the North End in September 2011.
A police report then stated Lucic was “highly intoxicated and hostile,” in keeping with modern Herald reporting on the incident, when he and his girlfriend have been arguing exterior a Commercial Street Starbucks at round 1:30 within the morning.
The report cited witnesses who stated the towering left wing was hovering over his girlfriend, who was mendacity on the bottom, and yelling at her and even throwing her issues, together with her sneakers and her purse, at her. However, the unnamed girlfriend “was adamant about not being harmed,” the report states, and Lucic was not charged.
Lucic informed a Herald columnist that “something” was made out of “nothing” in that incident and that “You definitely need to be careful where you are and of your surroundings” and that he would “put myself in the best situation everywhere I go so I don’t wind up in the same incident that happened.”
