NHL Owner Charged After Allegedly Strangling His Wife, Is Suspended Indefinitely by League
A hedge-fund manager who also owns a piece of the Arizona Coyotes of the NHL is facing multiple criminal charges after an incident with his wife.
Andrew Barroway, 57, of Scottsdale, Arizona, is charged with second-degree assault, a felony; third-degree assault, a misdemeanor; and a domestic violence count, the Aspen Daily News reported Friday.
The NHL responded by suspending Barroway.
“The National Hockey League is aware of the arrest of Arizona Coyotes’ minority owner Andrew Barroway. Pending further information, he has been suspended indefinitely,” the NHL said Friday in a statement posted on Twitter.
In addition to the charges against Barroway, 9th Judicial District Chief Judge John Neiley issued a mandatory protection order that bans Barroway from any contact with his wife. The only exception to the ruling is contact between the two through a third party when the couple’s children are exchanged.
