Bruins’ Milan Lucic Shows Up In Court On Assault Charge, Released On Personal Recognizance

milan-lucic

Veteran Milan Lucic of the Boston Bruins made an appearance in court on Tuesday morning to answer charges of assault and battery. He was then released on personal recognizance bail.

The left winger for the Bruins is accused of assault and battery after his wife called the police early on Saturday morning, claiming she had been choked. In the brief six-minute arraignment, the court entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf. Although January 19 was set aside for the pretrial, Lucic will not have to show up in person.

Other than acknowledging the judge once, Lucic remained silent throughout the hearing.

After reading the case details from the police report, Assistant District Attorney Marc Tillman stated that, given Lucic’s past, he was only requesting personal recognition bail. In addition, he asked for bail conditions, such as a no-abuse order and the requirement that Lucic abstain from alcohol consumption for the duration of the legal proceedings.

Lucic’s lawyer accepted those terms without complaint. He did submit a motion, which the judge granted, asking for the police report to be released without redactions.

Additionally, Tillman filed a motion, which the judge granted; however, the details of the motion were withheld.

The police report from Saturday’s incident states that Lucic, 35, became agitated over a cell phone and that he once pulled his wife back and grabbed her hair, telling her that she would not be leaving.

After returning home from a night out, Lucic’s wife told the police that her husband had trouble finding his phone during the night. She claimed that after realizing she had hidden his phone, he started screaming at her and demanding it back. She informed him that she was missing his phone and had no idea where it was. That’s when the attack took place.

She apparently denied that Lucic had strangled her when questioned by police.

According to the officers, Lucic seemed inebriated and told them “nothing had happened” but would not elaborate. and taken into custody.

According to the police, they discovered a broken lamp on one of the apartment’s nightstands and what looked to be a small amount of broken glass on the ground.

The nonprofit Casa Myrna, which supports victims of domestic abuse, cautions against ignoring abuse since it is likely to recur.

“That means this person is potentially lethal. It means they could be incredibly dangerous. And in most cases, abuse is going to escalate from there,” Casa Myrna CEO Stephanie Brown said.

Over the weekend, the Bruins announced that Lucic will be taking an indefinite leave of absence from the team, expressing their support for his family during this time.

The maximum punishment he could receive is two and a half years in prison and a $5,000 fine, but according to legal analyst Michael Coyne of NBC10 Boston, that probably won’t happen.

“Since it is a close family member, what often times happens is they reconcile, move to counseling and the witness doesn’t testify,” he said.

It is also unclear how long Lucic will play for the Bruins.

Having played for the Boston Bruins, Los Angeles Kings, Edmonton Oilers, and Calgary Flames, he has over 1,300 NHL games under his belt.

Having won the Stanley Cup with Boston in 2011, Lucic is back with the team following his signing of a $1 million, one-year free-agent contract last summer with the possibility of $500,000 in bonus money.

Due to an injury, the native of Vancouver has not played since October 21. Could he be dismissed from the team, though?

“That’s a huge decision for the player, for the family, for the team and for the league. So that’s guesswork. I don’t know what’s going to happen with Milan,” said Fluto Shinzawa, who covers the Bruins for The Athletic.
