On Tuesday we heard about the gruesome hockey skate to the face incident in which the whole NSFW accident was a disgusting mess. Now comes news that this guy, Kevin Stephens, has been arrested for a horrible stick swinging incident back in October at a rink in Missouri.

Via:

Brentwood Police said Stephens swung his stick at the other player during a no-contact league hockey game. The incident happened outside of play, according to the police report.

The man’s jaw was broken in multiple places, and he now has 17 permanent screws in his jaw as a result of the assault, police said.

So much for a no-contact hockey league.

Fox 2 St. Louis adds:

St. Louis County Prosecutor, Bob McCulloch, said it happened as referees were assessing penalties.  Stephens swung his stick like a baseball bat right into the jaw of an opposing player.

McCulloch said this was not a case of ‘mutual combatants’ agreeing to engage in an ‘on-ice’ fight, a key legal distinction.

Stephens faces seven years in jail. Ooops.
