Former Hockey Player Sean Avery Arrested In Southampton Last Week

Oct 6, 2015 5:28 PM

Former National Hockey League player Sean Avery was arrested by Southampton Village Police last week on two criminal charges.

According to authorities, Mr. Avery, who is 35, was arrested on Wednesday, September 30, following a routine traffic stop on Jennings Avenue in the village at about 4:09 p.m. He was charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief and two counts of seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, all misdemeanors.

Police said the criminal mischief charge stemmed from an incident the day before, when Mr. Avery, who lives in the village, reportedly threw objects at passing vehicles. Police could not specify where that incident took place, but on Monday, police radio transmissions indicated that Mr. Avery had contacted authorities about speeding cars on David Whites Lane.

Additionally, during the traffic stop, Mr. Avery was found to be in possession of two prescription drugs, acetaminophen with oxycodone and roxicodone.

Following his arrest, Mr. Avery was transported to police headquarters on Windmill Lane for processing. He was released on $500 bail and issued a ticket to appear in Southampton Village Justice Court at a later date.

Hamptons magazine: glossy brains, airhead features, idiot advertisers. Ask the big real estate brokers why they shove money to a rag that promotes getting f++d up and promotes all idiotd young and shallow as role models.

The guy had prescriction pain killers on him how would that be illegal? The cops make a routine traffic stop, and search his car? Something sounds a little crazy with the local keystone cops.

It was not a routine stop, they were looking for him for his previous actions. Prescription drugs are illegal if they are not in the drug store issued container.

Being pissed off at cars speeding on David White's Lane - Understandable.
(It IS one of the MANY roads people use for drag racing.)
Having prescription drugs in your car - Understandable.

Contacting police about the speeding cars on your road (if it is his road) - Understandable. Throwing things at cars - Not effective.

So - What was the actual 4th degree criminal mischief that he was charged with on Jennings - a completely different road - the next day? Mystery news ...more

This was not a one time event for Mr Avery. He has been harassing traffic on multiple roads for awhile now.
