Though on land, it seems like Claude Giroux followed the Kevin Kolb method of having a good time: Having some drinks and then getting arrested. According to the Ottawa Sun, Giroux was arrested last night for “repeatedly grabbing the buttocks of a male police officer.” What follows in the report is the most obvious statement of all time: “Alcohol is believed to have been involved.” It goes on:
“A witness and sources say the incident occurred outside The Great Canadian Cabin in the Byward Market club district.
Ottawa Police have refused any comment on the incident. Police said they cannot comment unless charges are laid, but several sources did confirm to the Sun Giroux spent the night in jail.
Sources say he is expected to be released Wednesday without any criminal charges.”
That sound you hear is the headline writer for every Flyers rival’s hometown paper crying tears of joy. Or, it’s Claude Giroux’s new theme song.
