Milan Lucic Pulls The Old “Do You Know Who I Am” Line With Cops After Getting Into Verbal Altercation With Girlfriend In North End
Bostonherald - Stanley Cup hero Milan Lucic was questioned by police early yesterday after he and his girlfriend got into an altercation in the North End. According to a police report of the incident, the Bruins [team stats] left winger was “highly intoxicated and hostile” after he and his galpal argued outside aStarbucks on Commercial Street shortly before 1:30 a.m. Witnesses told police the 6-foot-4, 220-pound hockey player was yelling at his girlfriend, who was on the ground, and at one point threw her shoes and purse at her. However, the woman told police she was not physically assaulted and “was adamant about not being harmed,” the report states. Police “did not observe any visible injuries,” the report says, and Lucic was not charged. Lucic’s marketing rep, Cleon Daskalakis, president of Celebrity Marketing, spoke to the hockey star yesterday after he was contacted by the Herald and said Lucic told him, “ ‘Yeah, we created some noise,’ ” but that it was “a complete misunderstanding” and “everything’s great with us.” “There’s times in a relationship when things get a little louder than they should and one thing leads to another,” Daskalakis said, “but I know there’s no way Milan would raise a hand to her. He loves her. The situation sounds a lot worse than it was.” Daskalakis said Lucic has been under “a lot of pressure” since the B’s won the Stanley Cup, but stressed, “He’s a great guy.” “He’s one of the nicest people you could possibly ever meet,” Daskalakis said. “You’d want him dating your daughter. He’s held to a higher standard. I honestly believe he’s upholding that standard.” As the officer continued to question Lucic, he “slammed his cell phone to the ground and yelled ‘Do you know who I am?’ ” the police report states.
I cringe everytime I hear a “Do you know who I am” line from a pro athlete. Cringe. Probably the worst thing somebody can say in the court of public opinion. Anyway I don’t know Milan from a hole in the wall. I do follow his girlfriend on twitter if that counts? Either way he’s got to be better than this. Like you’re famous. You can’t be freaking out in public throwing your girlfriend’s shoes at her and shit in front of starbucks. Just not a good look. Unless of course he just found out that she cheated on him. Then he’s within his rights to shake the shit out of her, but baring that he’s got to keep his shit together. Bottomline is if Milan wasn’t on the Bruins I’d be tearing him a new asshole right now, but he’s getting the hometown blogging discount. Because all I know is that in my 34 years of living I’ve never gotten in a scream match with a chick in public. It’s not normal.
PS – These two were obviously coming home from the Shawn Thornton Dropkick Murphy’s private B’s concert at Royale right?
