Andrew Barroway, a minority owner of the Arizona Coyotes, was arrested on Thursday in Aspen and charged with strangulation, a felony offense, and assault in the second degree, which is a misdemeanor.
The police took him to Pitkin County Jail after they had detained him at around 9:35 am at Limelight Hotel located in Monarch Street. He stayed there until Friday morning when he paid $2,500 as his bond money.
The court has ordered that Barroway isn’t allowed to talk to his wife, except when it comes to their children’s stuff and drinking alcohol. The NHL then told people that he has been stopped from doing any activities because of this arrest.
The NHL has made a statement about Arizona Coyotes’ owner Andrew Barroway because he got arrested. He is not allowed to be part of the team anymore until more information can be looked into.
Back in 2014, Barroway bought most of the Coyotes for $152.5 million and three years later, he bought out all the other owners involved with the franchise so that he becomes its only owner.
In 2019, Andrew Barroway gave away the most part of his share in the Coyotes to Alex Meruelo who now owns the majority stake.
