Wild Assistant Coach Arrested For DUI
FRIDLEY, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Wild assistant coach Darryl Sydor has been charged with drunken driving after being arrested while taking his 12-year-old son to a hockey game.
The criminal complaint says the 43-year-old Sydor was pulled over around 5:15 p.m. Thursday. It says his blood-alcohol level tested at 0.30 percent, more than four times the legal limit.
Sydor remained in the Anoka County Jail on Friday pending an afternoon court appearance.
Sydor has been an assistant coach for the Wild for the past four seasons. He also played 18 seasons in the NHL.
The Wild issued a statement saying the team was gathering information but declining comment for now. It wasn't immediately clear if Sydor has a lawyer who could comment on his behalf.
