L.A. Kings’ Jarret Stoll arrested on drug possession charges in Las Vegas
(CNN) — Hockey player Jarret Stoll of the L.A. Kings was arrested Friday at the swimming pool of a Las Vegas resort on a drug-possession charge, CNN affiliate KSNV reported, citing a police spokesman.
Stoll, 32, was charged with possession of controlled substances, including cocaine and ecstasy, according to KSNV.
He was released from the Clark County Detention Center late Friday on $5,000 bail.
The Kings said in a statement, “We are aware of police reports out of Clark County, Nevada regarding Jarret Stoll. Our organization is concerned and has begun conducting a thorough internal investigation. While we continue to actively gather facts, we are withholding further comment at this time.”
The Canadian player is a center and has been with the Kings since 2008. The Kings, who won the Stanley Cup two of the past three seasons, did not make the NHL playoffs this season.
He is reportedly involved with TV personality Erin Andrews, who is a Fox Sports reporter and co-hosts “Dancing with the Stars.”
CNN contacted the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department to confirm details on Stoll’s arrest, but according to the dispatcher no information was available until the beginning of the week.
