With Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic
set to appear in court today for an arraignment, we now know exactly what crimes he's been charged with by police.
Lucic's Charges Revealed After his Arrest over the Weekend
According to WCVB, police in Suffolk County have officially charged Lucic with assault and battery.
"The [District Attorney] confirmed Lucic is charged with assault and battery on a family member. Lucic will be arraigned Monday in Boston Municipal Court." - WCVB News
The charge is considered a misdemeanor. While misdemeanors in most states carry a maximum jail sentence of one year, in Massachusetts, it can be up to two and a half years. That doesn't mean Lucic will spend any time in jail. It will be up to the judge to decide on that if he is convicted of the charge.
Report Reveals Charges Laid Against Boston Bruins' Lucic
Over the weekend, it was made public that Lucic's wife had called 9-1-1 early Saturday morning to report that her husband had allegedly attacked and choked her. A police report said Lucic appeared intoxicated when officers arrived at the scene. Lucic has taken an indefinite leave of absence from the Bruins, and his career is likely in jeopardy if the allegations are proven true in court.
