Oleg Saprykin currently plays in the Kontinental Hockey League but used to play in the NHL as well with the Flames, Coyotes, and Senators. He is running into some legal issues now as he assaulted a female flight attendant because she refused to continue to serve him whisky, according to Interfax.ru.
The flight was from Sochi to Moscow, Russia. Saprykin was chillin’ in the business class section and that’s when he went off on the woman for not serving him anymore because he was too drunk. The woman was bruised and Sapyrkin was yelling at other members of the flight crew.
The pilot then landed the plane so authorities could arrest Saprykin. Saprykin was also locked up in a cell in his underwear and throwing broken furniture pieces. The flight attendant also choose to not press charges and he will only face a fine. Flip the page for Saprykin arguing with the flight crew courtesy of My News TV.
