Drunken hockey players? Go figure:
An “extremely intoxicated” Minnesota Gopher hockey player stood on a street in Stillwater after bar closing time and urinated for others to witness, police said.
Forward Erik Haula, 21, was cited for misdemeanor disorderly conduct early Saturday and then turned over to a friend, whom police described as “somewhat sober.”
The officer wrote in his report that he witnessed Haula “urinating while standing on Water St. on the west side of the Freight House [restaurant and bar] in plain view of the bar crowd after bar closing.”
The officer also noted in his report that even though “it was clear that he was extremely intoxicated,” the 2009 Minnesota Wild draft choice “was very cooperative. No problems.”
This boosts the number of Golden Gopher arrests to four in the last two years, still well behind other Big Ten programs.
