Hockey has somehow managed to stay in the headlines this winter despite being engaged in a lockout. But those headlines have mostly been negative. Well, unfortunately so is this one.A pair of retired NHL players were reportedly arrested last Friday after they allegedly attacked a man, who was upset at them for cutting in front of his vehicle while waiting in a fast-food drive-through lane. More from Laguna Beach Independent:Jean Francois Jomphe, 39, of Aliso Viejo, a former Anaheim Ducks player, was arrested for misdemeanor battery and vandalism, while Richard Anthony Costello, 49, of Dana Point, a member of the ’84 U.S. Olympic team who later played for the Toronto Maple Leafs, was arrested for suspicion of assault, said Capt. Jason Kravetz, adding that details of the confrontation are unclear as the report is incomplete.Jomphe allegedly punched the rear window of a vehicle containing five young adults, Kravetz said.Perhaps the lockout can be blamed on this? Why else would anyone feel a reason to knuckle up while sitting in line for a cheap meal? Hockey needs to resume soon for the sake of drive-through lines all across America, and Canada too for that mater.
