UND Players In Trouble Again
CHN Staff Report
Three players from the North Dakota hockey team were issued citations by the Grand Forks police department early Friday morning, according to reports.
T.J. Oshie and Chris VandeVelde received "loud party" violations in relation to the incident only hours after returning home to Grand Forks from Denver, where the three participated in the Frozen Four.
For Oshie, it is his third run-in with law enforcement while a member of the North Dakota hockey program. In 2007 he was cited for being in a bar underage, and in 2008 he was charged for disorderly conduct for allegedly urinating in an elevator.
It is also not the first time UND players have been issued loud party citations. In 2006, Joe Finley was arrested for underage drinking.
The team flew home after Thursday's 6-1 loss to Boston College in the semifinal game of the Frozen Four, leaving Denver some time around 11:00 p.m. The players were issued tickets only hours after arrival, some time early Friday morning.
A loud party violation is issued when the decibel level of a home becomes a nuisance to neighbors, and fines range from $250 to $750, depending on the facts in relation to the offense. No jail time comes with the infraction.
