Woman Allegedly Wallops Hockey Player With Stick

(AP) Police said a 52-year-old Ketchum woman is facing misdemeanor battery charges for whacking an opposing player with a hockey stick during a no-contact hockey game. Sun Valley police said they issued a misdemeanor battery citation to the woman earlier this week.

Assistant Police Chief Mike Crawford said the woman broke her stick over the leg of a male player on the opposing team who was lying on the ice at the time his leg was struck.

Crawford said the department normally doesn't get involved in on-ice altercations, but he said witnesses described the episode as excessive for a friendly hockey game.

Police began looking into the case after being notified by the victim after the game.

The woman was scheduled to appear in Blaine County Magistrate Court Feb. 2.
