VandenBussche: a “Non-Insane Automaton”? Verdict Pending

From the Canadian Press:

A former NHL enforcer is expected to find out Friday whether he’ll be jailed in connection with a brawl outside a southern Ontario hotel in 2006 that resulted in him being Tasered three times and pepper sprayed.

Ryan VandenBussche faces three charges of assaulting police and one charge of uttering a death threat.

His lawyer claimed he could not be held responsible for his actions because of a head injury that legally rendered him a “non-insane automaton.”

The verdict will be made public shortly and we’ll add it to this post.

Update 2:34pm ET: The charges against VandenBussche have been dismissed.

Below is a video compilation of some of VandenBussche’s work.
