Former New York Rangers Sean Avery was arrested last week in Southhampton following a traffic stop and faces three misdemeanor charges, a fourth-degree criminal mischief and two counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.
According to 27east.com:
Police said the criminal mischief charge stemmed from an incident the day before, when Mr. Avery, who lives in the village, reportedly threw objects at passing vehicles. Police could not specify where that incident took place, but on Monday, police radio transmissions indicated that Mr. Avery had contacted authorities about speeding cars on David Whites Lane.
Additionally, during the traffic stop, Mr. Avery was found to be in possession of two prescription drugs, acetaminophen with oxycodone and roxicodone.
Avery took to twitter after his arrest.
