Avery cleared after arrest

The sportsman – ex-boyfriend of actress Elisha Cuthbert – was held by police earlier this month (Aug11) after a dispute with officials who arrived at his home in the Hollywood Hills after a neighbour complained about noise.

It was alleged the New York Rangers ace pushed one of the officers during a confrontation, but according to TMZ.com it has now been decided he will not face any charges.

A source tells the website, “No criminal charges of any kind will be filed against Sean Avery stemming from his August 5 arrest for battery on a police officer.”
