“Screaming, yelling and playing loud music?” “Harassing passing motorists?” Eric Staal’s bachelor party seems almost quaint.
Brothers Eric Staal of the Carolina Hurricanes (above) and Jordan Staal of the Pittsburgh Penguins were among 14 people arrested and charged with disorderly conduct after a weekend party.The incident early Saturday morning occurred at the Lutsen Resort and Sea Villas, about 90 minutes south of the Thunder Bay, Ont., hometown of the Staal brothers. They were gathered there for 22-year-old Eric Staal‘s bachelor party. Jordan is 18.
“I’m sure that everyone involved is embarassed about the incident – as they should be,” Rick Curran, the agent for both players, told The Canadian Press on Wednesday. “Not to take anything away from the seriousness of it, it’s what can happen when you get any group of 15 to 20 people together and there’s loud noise.”
A Lutsen Resort employee, who did not want to give her name, said: “It was a bachelor’s party gone awry.”
