Mike V Arrested For Fight At Hockey Game

by The Editors on November 20, 2009

Mike Vallely was arrested and cited for “fighting in public” while at a Ducks hockey game at the Honda Center on Thursday night, and then today The Ducks officially severed promotional ties with the former pro skater, according to a story in the OC Register.

The incident occurred during the ‘three stars of the game’ presentation after the Ducks defeated Tampa Bay, 4-3, in overtime. Ducks captain Scott Niedermayer, the No.1 star of the game, skated out to the ice and went to hand his stick to a girl in the stands. . . Martinez said those who were interviewed in and around the area said that another man attempted to grab the stick from the girl when Vallely, who Martinez said had indicated that the stick was intended for his daughter, intervened (Vallely has two daughters, according to several Web sites).

If that is indeed Mike up in this Youtube video, then he’s still handling business quite nicely. Seems like the Ducks organization got exactly what they should have expected from their Mike V sponsorship?

I’d say that that Affliction sponsorship was to blame except Mike’s always been a meathead.

Why is everyone bad mouthing Mike over this? He is obviously the good guy in this, he’s just defending his family, any one els would do the exact same thing, the other guy is a major douche.

I’m gonna have to say this first… Mike maybe didn’t handle the situation in what the law would consider to be the right way. However, with that said, without having been there, I can’t say that he handled it inappropriately. The tall guy saw that he could take advantage of the situation because he TOWERED over the ladies (and/or little girls) that were to his right (camera’s left). Vallely came over, seeing what this big idiot (yeah, he’s an f’ing idiot as he tried to jack someone else for the stick) was doing, and wanted him to realize his error. The big guy, who (possibly due to over indulging with the beer – Hey, you can see a beer in his hand – I’m not saying he was drunk) was obviously not letting the stick go, possibly made an error in judgement due to any number of reasons. If it wasn’t for his refusing to let go of the stick, the stick would not then have been smashed into his face and followed with a left cross to the side of his head. Additionally, his friends, family, or whoever were not free from guilt and proceeded to make the situation worse by jumping into the fight, arms swinging…

The only person I’m hearing anything about repercussions is towards Mike for his participation in the fight. What about all the other douchebags (women can be douches as well) that were involved in this fight?.. Mike should face the consequences of his actions, but so should the others involved.

The only winners in this situation are those that may have sold the footage for distribution…

Watch this slow motion video of the fight: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ytfWdKTSqNU

You can clearly see the guy in the blue shirt makes a half-hearted attempt to grab the stick (he never moves his feet, only uses one hand, etc). If they stick was intended to go to some girl in the audience, so be it – but that kinda shit goes on at every baseball game, football game, etc. on a weekly basis. Any sports fan would know this. Who knows… given the chance maybe the guy would have handed the stick back to the girl. But we will never know because the first thing Mike V does is shove his forearm into the guy’s face. The guy then let’s go of the stick – at which point the confrontation should be over. But no, Mike then fires off at least three quick punches on the guy, who by now has fallen over the seatback.

Looks like a pretty clear case of assault & battery to me. To Munkey’s point above, whomever that chick is she should be charged as well.

IMO Mike V is a joke who has turned into the meathead jock he’s always espoused against.

Nick Peterson November 22, 2009 at 3:11 pm

oh yea and you can see the guy fighting back so what did mike do wrong they both threw punches its just mike did it better

JAF November 22, 2009 at 8:04 pm

@ dip shit:

it’s called responding/fighting back in self defense.

for example, if i were to punch you from behind, you would be stunned-like the guy with the beer being hit-and (most likely) hit back without thinking as to whom you were hitting back at.

if the hockey player REALLY wanted to make sure the said little girl gets the hockey stick, he could have knocked on the glass, pointed and mouthed to the child, so that the others in the group realized the direction of the gift… my guess is, he did not given the time line-he just skated over and tossed the stick over the glass.

regardless if it was meant for v.’s daughter (or not), do you REALLY think m.v. did the right thing in blatantly beating some beer guts ass-i mean really? give me a fucking break, i know this country has a weighted i.q. of 14… but really, do you think mike v. was in the right (if ‘yes’, i am assuming you think o.j. is innocent of all charges).

Comparing a hockey fight to a murder case.

Mike V is just an angry guy who thinks he’s always right, like anyone who posts on the internet.

okay this whole excerpt is FALSE! The hockey player chucked the stick at the man’s sister, in protection the man caught the stick. Mike V was sitting behind the man and said “no way mother f******!!” placed one arm around the mans neck and grabbed the stick with the other hand. Mike V started to jab the stick into the man’s face so he would let go. The man’s sister started to punch Mike V in the head, Her boyfriend pulled Mike V off the man. Then the man and his sister jumped Mike V defensively.
