Mike Milbury Won’t Be Charged For Assault on 12-Year-Old

A court ruled Friday that current NBC hockey analyst Mike Milbury will not be charged for his alleged assault on a 12-year-old hockey player.

The incident occurred earlier this month at a youth hockey game in Brookline. According to the Boston Herald, “after Milbury’s son and a player for the other team got into a scrape on the ice, Milbury charged out onto the rink and verbally berated and grabbed and shook the 12-year-old opposing player.”

The 59-year-old Milbury later admitted to the Globe that he did grab the 12-year-old by his sweater and swear at him.

The clerk magistrate ruled, however, that there was not enough evidence to continue with the case.

Milbury released a statement later on Friday:

“My family and I are gratified that the clerk magistrate found no reason to further investigate the incident at Larz Anderson Park two weeks ago when I separated two 12 year old boys in a Pee Wee hockey game, one of whom was my son. I was a coach and supervisor on the ice that day when the scuffle broke out after the game had concluded and the referee had left. I know I acted responsibly to break up an altercation between two young boys in order to prevent potential injury to both. My actions were in no way inappropriate and I would take the same actions today if confronted with a similar situation in the future.”

Milbury was never arrested for the incident.

He had taken time off from his duties with NBC to fight the charges against him.
