Gay Rights Ally Sean Avery Arrested After Allegedly Shoving Officer

NY Rangers hockey player Sean Avery, who recently came out in support of marriage equality, was arrested after allegedly shoving a police officer. 

The Washington Post reports:
Lt. Jorge Pardo tells City News Service that a neighbor’s noise complaint sent police to the home at around 1 a.m. Friday. Pardo says Avery answered the front door, shoved an officer and slammed the door but cooperated when officers knocked a second time. The officer wasn’t injured. 
The 31-year-old hockey player was booked on suspicion of battery on a police officer. He remains jailed Friday morning on $20,000 bail.
