Report: Sidney Crosby arrested for ‘driving related’ reason in Ottawa

Oh boy. Per the QMI News Agency:

Pittsburgh Penguins centre Sidney Crosby was arrested by Ottawa Police late Tuesday while driving a rented Porsche, sources have told QMI Agency.

Reasons of his arrest were unknown, but appear to be driving related.

Sources say Crosby was taken to the Ottawa police headquarters on Elgin street for fingerprinting and a mugshot.

It is unknown at this time why the NHL star was in Ottawa.

Ottawa Police have been unable to be reached for comment.

I hope he's okay and I hope that this isn't what I think it might be.

Ottawa police are denying a published report that they arrested NHL superstar Sidney Crosby.

QMI Agency quoted sources as saying the Pittsburgh Penguins captain was arrested late Tuesday while driving a rented Porsche.

The report said the reason for the arrest was unknown but that it appeared to be "driving related."

The Ottawa police duty desk told The Canadian Press: "It never happened."

Ottawa police Chief Charles Bordeleau also tweeted that the police "have had no dealings with Mr. Crosby."

The Penguins also confirmed to TSN that Crosby is in Vail, Colorado training for the start of the season. "Penguins confirm, Crosby is in Vail, Colorado training this week," tweeted TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger on Wednesday morning.

Perhaps Monsieur Claude Giroux was wearing his Sidney mask.

If he wasn’t there he wasn’t there. I just saw the report, posted it as a “report,” and wondered what the morning would bring…Apparently it brought a bizarre retraction.
