According to various news outlets, former Isles and Bruins coach and Islanders GM Mike Milbury is facing charges of assault and battery on a child, threatening to commit a crime, and disorderly conduct.
Milbury through his attorney denied all allegations saying that he intervened in an altercation between his son and another player. Also that noone was hurt or threatened.
According to reports the incident happened on December 9th in a game between Milburys sons team and another team in which Milbury was acting as an assistant coach for his sons team. There was allegedly some talk back and forth between Milburys son and this other boy, and that caused Milbury to come off the bench onto the ice and grab the twelve year old boy.
Milbury allegedly picked the boy up by his shirt collar and shook him before some other parents stepped in to break it up.
Wow, I don't even know what to say to this! If this is in fact true, then Milbury is even stupider then we all thought he was!!
