Probert making headlines again....

Former NHL Tough Guy Arrested in Delray BeachBy West Palm Beach Associated Press
WJHG-TVJun 4, 2004 - Former NHL tough guy Bob Probert is in jail Friday in Delray Beach after a scuffle with police that led to him being shocked with a Taser gun.

Officers say they saw Probert as he parked his car on the wrong way of street and hanged out of his window as he yelled at several men early this morning.

A police report says the 38-year-old Probert tried to fight with one of the men, then fought with officers

Police hit him several times with a Taser gun, which shoots barbed probes that give the recipient a usually non-lethal but incapacitating shock.

Probert, who listed his alias as "The Bad One" on booking documents, was charged with battery on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest with violence and disorderly conduct.

Probert played 17 seasons with the NHL. He has been charged several times with driving under the influence and has substance abuse problems in his past.

In his career he had 163 goals and 384 points, and his 3,300 penalty minutes in 935 games rank him fourth on the NHL's all-time penalty minutes list.

Are you a hockey fan, Todd? I remember Probert's stint in Detroit, I lived there at the time. He was always in trouble for something, mostly because of his drinking problems. It didn't stop there, of course.

The guy is a thug on the ice, a formidable force to be reckoned with but... he can't control his demons and they continue to haunt him.

I have owned one hockey jersey in my lifetime, which I wear religiously during the playoffs...it's a Red Wings Probie jersey.
