BU hockey player Trivino charged with assault; kicked off team
Boston University leading scorer Corey Trivino, who was drafted by the New York Islanders in 2008, was arrested Sunday night and faces multiple charges stemming from an incident with a female student, the student newspaper BU Today reported on Tuesday.
Trivino was charged with three counts of indecent assault and battery, two counts of breaking and entering in the nighttime and one count of assault with attempt to rape for allegedly entering a woman's room and attempting to kiss and fondle her against her will.
Trivino was arraigned Monday and could either pay $25,000 bail or surrender his Canadian passport, the newspaper reported. He was ordered to leave his BU dormitory.
Coach Jack Parker acted swiftly.
"He is no longer associated with the BU hockey team," he said, according to the newspaper.
