Our old pal Erin Andrews’ LA King boyfriend, Jarret Stoll, was arrested yesterday in Las Vegas for possession of cocaine and molly at the MGM Wet Republic pool. No real details yet on what exactly happened, but 8 News Now in Las Vegas broke the story:
Metro Police confirms to 8 News NOW that Los Angeles Kings center Jarret Stoll was arrested Friday at the MGM Wet Republic pool for possession of cocaine and MDMA.
There is no word on what time the arrest was made. Stoll won two Stanley Cups with the Kings in 2012 and 2014.
Stoll is currently dating broadcaster and Dancing with the Stars co-host Erin Andrews.

From what I can tell, it looks like Jarret was just trying to blow off a little steam after a terrible season, if you know what I mean. The Kings won the cup last year, didn’t make the playoffs this year, and locked their coach out of the locker room because they were tired of his shit at the end of the season. That seems pretty stressful.
So the season ends last Saturday, and he heads to Vegas the next Friday and chills by the pool in the sun with a little molly and a little coke — the unofficial mascots of Las Vegas. Sure, those drugs are illegal, but this is a professional athlete from LA visiting Vegas that we’re talking about — they don’t live real lives. Especially when the season just ended. No drug tests for a while and lots of time to just kick back.
In all seriousness, I feel bad for Stoll. You could probably arrest the majority of people at Las Vegas pools for possession of some kind of drug. He just happened to be the guy dating the hot blonde reporter there.
Which brings up the real question: was Pageviews Andrews there and did she partake? That would be a real story.
I wrote this last night to put up this morning, and now the Kings have released a statement. All I can say is that LasVegas.com should win an award for that advertising.
