    MIKE MILBURY charged with assaulting 12 yo boy

       Hockey Central is reporting that MAD MIKE is an assistant coach of a kid's team, and he had an altercation with a boy from an opposing team.
    No mention if he hit the kid with his own shoe, but his tv career has just come to an end, IMO.

    It doesn't sound like much, he just yelled at the kid and shook him

    He was likely upset with the "woosification" of pee wee division hockey.

    I hope the peewee league has procedures in place to deal with coaches' misconduct like this.

    I suspect somebody intervened before it got very far. Milbury probably would have gotten his a s s kicked like every fight he had in the NHL. That's presuming there was no shoe availabe to beat the kid with as they were on the ice :P

    However, all fun aside, I will wait for more details before I pass judgement on the guy.

    It wasn't reported until the next day which makes it suspect iMO.

    Not going to make any judgment at all until we see how this plays in court and more information comes up. Assault and battery on a child, threats to commit a crime, and disorderly conduct do sound like fairly significant charges. Anyone aware of what the potential sentencing on those three is? I do think that touching someone else's kid is in serious bad form if that is in fact the case here.

    Well if it happened on the ice there should be enough people who saw what went on.

    First, the facts are not yet presented. Second, sometimes local Brookline police  overreact. If the charges are coming from the kid's legal representative, they are after the money. Some 12 year olds are rather large and very arrogant, but, if Mike grabbed the kid he's wrong on that count alone. These are probably "all-star" travel teams, and some of their coaches, and parents, preach win at any c ost.

    It's also very likely that there was video (some parent always has a video camera at games), which will likely be used as evidence to determine the basis for formal charges, and/or disciplinary action from the p/w league.

    I was looking for the box scores to see what penalities were assessed an what may have lead up to this, but neither team has posted them up yet. It was an outdoor game that went to a shootout. Also Milbury is not the coach, the team's web site lists him as asst. coach.

    I realize times are tight but going after Milbury's money doesn't seem like it would be worth the effort.

    Guilty or not I'm with BiggSkye as NBC is a whole different animal than NESN, bigger advertisers too deal with. Can't speak as to what CBC might do however at least Barnaby will have someone to talk to in anger management classes.

    Absolutely.  I wouldn't be surprised if there's more than one.

    I'm inclined to be skeptical of the story, if only because the reporter begins it by saying, "Former Bruins great Mike Milbury ..."

    If Milbury is a "great," then I'm Wayne Gretzky.

    Found this in the Commonwealth's criminal code.

    "(b) Whoever commits an assault and battery upon a child and by such assault and battery causes bodily injury shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for not more than five years or imprisonment in the house of correction for not more than two and one-half years."

    Watch, nothing will come of this and hockey boards around the world will light up with garbage about the Bruins playing by different rules.

    I shouldn't joke, because this is serious regardless of whether the kid's parents or legal reps are trying to take advantage of the situation.  That's all really a question of their behaviour, not Milbury's.  If there's video of him so much as touching the kid while also yelling at him or berating him, then just on his behaviour, he's in the wrong.

    I do hope this isn't some sideshow, though.  I wonder if it comes up on the HotStove.

    Re: MIKE MILBURY charged with assaulting 12 yo boy

    Milbury's lawyer has issued a statement saying that he did nothing wrong and that all he did was pull the kid off his son during a fight.

    "Mike Milbury denies any allegations that there was an assault of any kind," said Milbury's lawyer Dan Rabinovitz in a statement released Friday. "He simply intervened in an altercation between his son and an opposing player. No one was struck, no one was injured and no one was threatened."



    If that's the case, I have two questions - what was Milbury doing on the ice in the first place, and where were the linesmen? No clue if it's criminal, but it does sound well out of the rules of hockey. Isn't a coach entering the field of play a bench major and an ejection?

    Edit: Nevermind, I guess the fight happened during the shootout and coaches from both benches came out.

    Any word yet on who won the "altercation"?  I am going with the 12 year-old.
