 MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Carolina Hurricanes star Eric Staal and his brother, Jordan Staal of the Pittsburgh Penguins, were arrested for misdemeanor disorderly conduct and obstructing the legal process at Eric Staal's bachelor party at a Minnesota resort.
The Cook County Sheriff's Office said the brothers were among 14 arrested last weekend after authorities received several complaints about ``screaming, yelling and playing loud music'' at the resort in northeastern Minnesota, about two hours from the Staals' hometown of Thunder Bay, Ontario.
The sheriff said the group was warned multiple times before finally being ordered to leave the Lutsen Resort and Sea Villas in Lutsen, at which point the men gathered on a nearby highway and ``began harassing motorists.'' That's when authorities arrested the group, around 4 a.m. Saturday.
Eric Staal, 22, is entering his fourth season with the Hurricanes. He is the highest paid player on the team, making $4.5 million per season, and led the league in postseason scoring with 28 points during Carolina's run to the Stanley Cup championship in 2006. He had 30 goals and 40 assists in the regular season last season.
Jordan Staal, 18, was also charged with underage drinking. He had 29 goals and 42 points and led the league with seven short-handed goals to make the All-Rookie team last season.
Observer of Raleigh, N.C. ``Frankly, that goes with the territory. You get that many, a group, of kids together, somebody is going to say something stupid.''
Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford said in a written statement to The Associated Press that he had only limited information about the incident and would monitor the situation, ``but I don't see it being an issue that affects us as it stands now.''
