Facing The Public Opinion Court

from Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette,

Defenceman Ryan O’Byrne and Tom Kostopoulos were arrested yesterday, and the first thing that jumped out at me as I read the police report was the time and place of the incident - 3 a.m. outside a bar.

Over the years, we’ve seen numerous stories about athletes running afoul of the law. The offences have run the gamut from players urinating in alleys to incidents where people have been killed. The two constants in many of those cases have been alcohol and late hours.

How come these incidents nev er take place at 3 p.m. in a library?

The legal system will decide whether O’Byrne is guilty of third-degree grand theft and whether Kostopoulos was out of bounds when he went to the defence of his teammate and was charged with resisting arrest without violence.

But the two have already been subjected to the court of public opinion and they’re both guilty of being stupid.
