The Los Angeles Kings center Jarrett Stroll has been arrested in Las Vegas, Nevada on suspicion of drug possession. He was arrested on suspicion of cocaine and ecstasy at the Wet Republic Pool at the MGM Grand Hotel. The 32-year old Stroll was detained at Clark County Detention Center. Stoll joined the Kings in 2008 and won two Stanley Cups with the team (2012 and 2014). The Kings organization issued a statement regarding his arrest:
“Our organization is concerned and has begun conducting a thorough internal investigation,” the team’s statement said. “While we continue to actively gather facts, we are withholding further comment at this time.” NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly also issued a statement to the Los Angeles Times.
“We are aware of the reports tonight, and we obviously will follow up to understand the nature of the allegations that are being made,” Daly told the Times. “We are not in a position at this time to comment further until we have more information.”
Stoll is the boyfriend of Erin Andrews, the Fox Sports reporter and “Dancing with the Stars” co-host. Stoll also was engaged to actress and model Rachel Hunter, singer Rod Stewart’s former wife.
