So Sean Avery is a moron. In other news, water is wet.
Avery was arrested early this morning for shoving a Hollywood, CA police office who was responding to a noise complaint about a loud party at Avery’s house [link, and yes I picked the TMZ one on purpose]. He must have had The Hangover turned up all the way because we can’t imagine anyone hanging out with this prize. He was taken to jail and bail set at $20,000.
John Buccigross, the most effective fact-tweeter in the business, pointed out that Dallas still pays half of Sean Avery’s salary. They’re paying $950,000 a year to keep him away. Can they get a portion of his bail, like an economic stimulus package?
It’s a shame, really, because we applaud Sean Avery’s efforts on behalf of legalizing gay marriage in NY. It actually made us like him for a minute. But supporting a good cause has not shaken the stupid out of him. Being an NHL instigator and being a moron are not the same thing. NY1 News Video here.
