Claude Giroux arrested for grabbing a cop’s butt

While the NHL was busy during the frantic first day of free agency, Claude Giroux was arrested for repeatedly grabbing a police officer’s butt. Here’s the details of the incident courtesy of the Ottawa Sun:

Officers were inside the bar as part of routine walk-throughs, when one officer had his butt grabbed by a patron as he walked by.

The officer turned around and told the patron not to behave like that, but he was grabbed again. At that point, the patron was taken outside of the bar to be spoken to, and was arrested soon after.

The officers involved did not initially recognize Giroux.

That’s one hell of a way to get arrested. Kind of makes you wish there was a picture of the arrest, doesn’t it? Thanks to Reddit Hockey, you’re in luck.
