Lightning’s Ryan Malone busted for coke in Tampa

Ryan Malone mugshot is hot off the press.

The Tampa Bay Lightning forward was busted with cocaine and suspicion of DUI. According to police, on April 11 they pulled the NHL tough guy over after he ran over a curb.

Malone refused a field sobriety test, but was later submitted to a blood alcohol test and was found to have a BAC of 0.112.

A Tampa police officer also found 1.3 grams of cocaine in Malone’s pocket so that’s gonna mess with his NHL mojo for a bit.

Drinking is one thing, doing lines may not be as league friendly. 

Here’s the mugshot Malone cheesed for after his arrest.

Now we will wait and see if and when the Lightning or another NHL team gives this guy another chance. Other NHL players including Red Wings Bob Probert and Rangers Don Murdoch bounced back after blow arrests and contributed to rosters.
