LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- An NHL player was arrested after he allegedly shoved police officer at his home in Hollywood Hills early Friday morning.
Authorities say officers responded to a noise complaint at the home of New York Rangers player Sean Avery in the 8000 block of Highland Terrace at about 1 a.m.

The 31-year-old hockey player was booked on suspicion of battery on a police officer. He was held on $20,000 bail.
The officer was not injured.
