Sidney Crosby arrest reports are a 'blatant lie'

Reports surfaced early Wednesday morning that Pittsburgh Penguins star Sidney Crosby was arrested in Ottawa. The report was initially passed along by the Ottawa Sun, who claimed Crosby was taken for “fingerprints and a mugshot.”

The paper offered very little information on the arrest other than the fact that Crosby was allegedly driving a rented Porsche, and now we now why.

According to the Ottawa Police Department, the reports of Crosby being arrested are a “blatant lie.”

It’s an out and out blatant lie,” Sergeant Steven Hodgson told 1310News in Ottawa. “As far as I know, somebody is pulling something here.” 

Hodgson went on to say that his department had no dealings with Crosby.

In fact, while the Ottawa Sun is out reporting Crosby was in Ottawa being arrested, he was actually out in Colorado doing what professionals do and preparing for the upcoming NHL season.

The Ottawa Sun has since pulled their story.

Hey, at least the Ottawa Sun didn’t go claiming that Sidney Crosby injured both of his ankles while jumping off of a balcony to save a drowning nephew. A manufactured report of that nature would just be ridiculous, now wouldn’t it?
