A police report has shed new light on what transpired in the moments that led up to the arrest of Boston Bruins forward Milan Lucic over the weekend.
According to new details obtained via a police report of the incident, we now know that it began in the early hours of Saturday morning and that the alleged domestic incident occurred over a cell phone.
The family member who called the police said that Lucic was unable to locate his cell phone after returning from a night out in which they believe Lucic consumed alcohol, leading to Lucic demanding his phone from the family member.
Although details of the 911 call that were leaked to the public over the weekend indicate that the family member had stated they had been "attacked and choked," they did not repeat those claims when speaking with officers on the scene.
Officers observed redness on the family member's chest but the family member said that Lucic had not attempted to strangle them and they declined medical treatment. In spite of that, the injuries were photographed by officers on the scene.
Officers noted a broken lamp when inside of the apartment as well as broken glass on the floor, and it was at that point that Lucic was arrested on a charge of assault and battery on a family member.
Lucic for his part denied any wrongdoing when confronted by the officers on the scene:
"He appeared to be intoxicated when he answered the door," states the police report as per ABC Boston. "He stated to officers that nothing had happened and did not attempt to provide any explanation."
Lucic is set to be arraigned on that charge on Monday in Boston.
