Gopher hockey player cited for disorderly conduct


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- A Minnesota Gopher hockey player has been cited for disorderly conduct for an incident in Stillwater last weekend.

A police report says Erik Haula was "extremely intoxicated" when he urinated outside the Freight House in Stillwater in view of others after the bars closed early Saturday. The officer noted in his report that Haula was "very cooperative." The Star Tribune says Haula was cited and turned over to a friend who the officer described as "somewhat sober."

Gophers Athletic Department spokesman Garry Bowman says hockey coach Don Lucia is aware of the incident, has talked to Haula and will handle the matter internally. The Gopher forward will be a junior this year. He led the team last season with 49 points, scoring 20 goals and earning 29 assists.
