Goalie ticketed for lewdness after mooning fans
NORTH LOGAN, Utah -- A University of Southern California
hockey goalie put on a show, but it had nothing to do with stopping
Mickey Meyer rode his stick like a horse, dropped his bulky
pants, mooned the crowd and slapped his buttocks during a game
against Brigham Young University, police said.
He was ejected and ticketed for lewdness, a misdemeanor, after
an officer who was working security at the rink said he witnessed
the scene Saturday.
"I had my fill of these refs," Meyer said on an Internet
broadcast of the game, according to The Herald-Journal of Logan.
Meyer's antics occurred while play was stopped and referees were
trying to sort out penalties in the third period of a consolation
game in the ACHA West Regional tournament at Eccles Ice Center.
The junior from Clinton, N.Y., was "riding his hockey stick
like a horse and slapping his butt," North Park Officer Mike
Stauffer said in a report.
After pulling down his pants, Meyer slapped his bare bottom
several times, Stauffer said.
