DENVER (AP) - Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov is accused of assaulting his girlfriend, kicking her in the chest and dragging her by the hair, and was scheduled to appear before a judge Thursday.
The 25-year-old turned himself into police Wednesday evening, after practicing with the team that day. He was arrested on suspicion of second-degree kidnapping and third-degree assault.
His arrest warrant details the alleged assault, which took place Monday. In addition to kicking the woman, police say Varlamov told her in Russian that if this were Russia, he would have beat her more.
