Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - January 7, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Saturday, Jmnry I, THI UTHMIDOI MIAIO 11 PILE-UP AT THE GATE Oakland Srali goalie Garry Kurt freezes the puck in first period action against the Detroit Red Wings in a National Hockey League game in Oakland Friday night. Identifiable Wings are Al Karland- Salomon claims police brutality er (left) and Mickey Redmond No. 2 It Marjholl Johnson and No. 4 a Dick Redmond of the Seals. Game ended in 4-4 tie. Court dates for four Blues PHELADEtPHIA (AP) Four members of St. Louis Blues have two dates in Phila- delphia next month, one to play Philadelphia Flyers m a Na- tional Hockey League game, and 'the other in police court. The four Blues, coach Al Ar- bour and players Floyd Thorn- ion, Phil Roberto and John Ar- bour, were released on ball each Friday after a scrap among fans, players and police during Thursday night's Blues- Flyers game at the Spectrum. The melee wastrlggered when a fan allegedly spilled beer on coadi Arbour. Before the fighting ended, both Al Ar hour and John Arbour, no rela- tion to Al, needed stitches for bead wounds. The Arbours, Thomson and Roberto, were charged with dis- orderly conduct and assault and battery on policemen. Thomson also was charged with aggra- vated assault and battery. They are to appear for a hearing Feb. 7, the day after the Blues play the Flyers again in Phila- delphia. The fight broke out at the end of the second period with the Flyera leading 2-0. The Flyers had already gone to their dress- ing room and are reported to have known nothing about the blood-letting on the rink and In the stands. DISPUTED REF'S DECISION Coach Arbour walked onto the Ice at the end of the period to argue with referee John Ashley about a decision. He followed Ashley into the tunnel that leads to the officials' dressing room. That's when Arbour said a fan poured a can of beer on him. St, Louda players are reported to have charged into the tunnel and defenceman Barclay Plager leaped over the railing into the stands after the beer pourer. Police rushed to the area and attempted to push the Blues back onto the Ice. Detective Lt. Matthew Veasey said the play- ers were told to return to the ice or they'd all be arrested. He quoted coach Arbour as reply- Wings, Seals play to draw By THE CANADIAN PRESS Wayne Carleton showed his new employers, California Golden Seals, a case of the heavies when he arrived in the National Hockey League camp last fall. Even distributed over a six- foot-three frame, 245 pounds is a lot of beef to hnul around an ice surface. It was only one ol the many problems Seals faced in assuming respectability after a disastrous 1970-71 schedule. The Seals have since straight- ened away, and so, apparently, has Sudbury-born Oarieton, who scored twice Friday night in the league's only game as the Seals held Detroit Red Wings to a 4-4 stalemate. The tie settled the Seals more firmly into third place in the West Division with 33 points, 'our ahead of fourth iohitly by Pittsburgh Penguins md St. Louis 16 be- lind second-place Minnesota North Stars.

Oarieton, who picked up. the nickname Swoop in respect for his long, fluid strides while playing with Toronto Marlboros of the Ontario Hockey Associa- tion Junior A series, had been counted on by the Seals for his big shot. He's been somewhat of a bust In that department while skat- ing himself into shape, but Fri- day night's performance may have been just the adrenalin needed to get the rangy winger moving. His ninth goal of the season started the Seals off on a 3-0 lead, and when the Red Wings rebounded for three of their own Mickey Redmond's 21st, unassisted, to tie the score at of the second period, Oarieton again shot the Califor- nians into the lead at of the final 20 minutes.

Coach Arbour said: "Someone dumped beer on me and then I tripped over a policeman. As 1 started to get up, another po- liceman hit me over the head with a club. When I started to get up again, a fan conked me. I would nerer hit a policeman." Herb Rhodes, a former Phila- delphia policeman now with the Spectrum security force, said Arbour pushed the referee anC a policeman pushed Arbour away. Rhodes said that Arbour took a swing at the policeman and that another officer hit' the coach over the head with a night stick. TANGLE AGAIN Police finally got the Blues back on the ice and beaded to- ward their dressing room, but once again they became in- volved with fans. Patrolman Alfred Sulvetta's glasses were smashed by a hockey stick, but he wasn't, In- jured. Patrolman Michael Cas- tagna was struck In the mouth with a stick and said he would press charges against the player who hit him. Barclay Plager said he saw a policeman hit John Arbour with a hockey stick. Four fans were injured and treated at the Spec- trum. When the game resumed some 45 minutes later, the Blues rallied for three early third period goals to defeat the Flyers 3-2. Blues' owner Sidney Salomon Jr. said the police action was "the worst case of police brutal- ity that I've ever seen." CONSULT LAWYERS On return to St. Louis Friday, however, Salomon said he will confer with attorneys before de- ciding on whether to file a suit against police. Salomon complained that Al Arbour and the three players were detained at police head- quarters until nearly a.m., then handcuffed and taken to police court for arraignments. Of a standoff stance taken by ?lyers management in the ar- rests, Salomon declared. "I can guarantee that if a Philadelphia Jlayer had been arrested in St. Louis I personally would have stayed with him and the Phila- delphia management until ev- erything had been cleared."
