Nick Boynton, the former NHL defenseman and current Arizona Coyotes radio broadcaster, pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct after a wild night in the Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino last March. A drunken Boynton cursed out employees of the casino who would not serve him any more alcohol, had what was described as a "rampage" within the casino, shoved one casino customer off his chair and on to the floor, fought with security guards, and bit the hand of one of the arresting police officers. The Arizona Coyotes organization immediately placed Boynton on indefinite suspension after the incident.
According to the Buffalo News, Boynton was able to enter a plea bargain due to his lack of prior offenses. He will agree to perform 100 hours of community service, stay out of future trouble, continue receiving alcohol counseling, and no longer go to the Buffalo area casino for the next year.
Boynton plans on asking for his radio job back.
Outside of the courtroom, a contrite Boynton said to reporters: "I feel terrible. I want to apologize to my family, to the Arizona Coyotes. I want to put this in my past and learn from my mistakes and make sure this does not happen again."
