Phil Posted August 21, 2019 Share Posted August 21, 2019 Mark Pavelich, a forward on the 1980 U.S. Olympic ?Miracle on Ice? hockey team, is in jail on four felony charges including assault after allegedly beating a neighbor with a metal pole. The incident took place Thursday, according to a complaint file. A neighbor said Pavelich attacked him, with Pavelich accusing him of spiking his beer after they went fishing. The neighbor was ?in and out of shock, but had observable injuries and an obvious disfigurement of his leg,? according to the complaint. He had two cracked ribs, a bruised left kidney and a fractured vertebrae. Pavelich, 61, was reportedly ordered to undergo a mental health evaluation by a Minnesota judge on Monday. ?There is reason to doubt (Pavelich?s) competency,? wrote Judge Michael Cuzzo in a court order for the evaluation, according to the Duluth News Tribune. A Minnesota court official said that order is not public record. https://olympics.nbcsports.com/2019/08/21/mark-pavelich-arrest-miracle-on-ice-hockey/ Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
