Ex-Bruin Mike Milbury Will Not Face Charges For Alleged Confrontation With Youth Hockey Player

The case against Mike Milbury stemming from an alleged confrontation with a 12-year old hockey player following a youth hockey game in Brookline has been dismissed and the former Boston Bruin will not face any charges.

On Dec. 9, the 59-year old Milbury was involved in an incident with a 12-year old boy after a peewee hockey game between the Boch Blazers and Boston Junior Blackhawks at Larz Andersen Rink in Brookline. Police sought charges, but a clerk magistrate at Brookline District Court ruled on Friday that there is not enough evidence to proceed with the case.

The parents of the boy left court without speaking to the press, but Milbury addressed the media, calling the entire situation "an unfortunate misunderstanding." Defense attorneys for Milbury told the Boston Herald that Milbury was only trying to intervene on an altercation that had occurred between his son and the 12-year old boy.
