LONE TREE, Colo. (AP) -Former Colorado Avalanche coach Joel Quenneville is due in court next month on a drunken driving charge.
Police in the Denver suburb of Lone Tree say Quenneville was stopped around 8 p.m. Friday for driving without his headlights on. After further investigation, he was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and failure to use headlights.
Sgt. Dan Seaman says Quenneville's license was confiscated after he refused to take a chemical test.
The Avalanche hired Quenneville in 2004. The team announced in May that he was being replaced by assistant Tony Granato.
Quenneville is due in Douglas County court Oct. 3. A phone number for him could not be found.
The arrest was first reported by KUSA-TV in Denver.
