NHL Legend and Stanley Cup Champion Ed Belfour was arrested early Tuesday morning at a downtown Bowling Green, Kentucky hotel. Police say he damaged the property and was under the influence of alcohol to a point he was a danger to himself and others.

Belfour, was arrested just before 1:30 a.m. at the Kentucky Grand Hotel and Spa, 635 College St. The charges are third-degree criminal mischief and alcohol intoxication in a public place.

Bowling Green Police Department officers, who were responding to a complaint of a drunk and disorderly subject, found Belfour laying on the floor on the hotel's second level, clutching a curtain rod that had been ripped out of the dry wall above a window next to him and kicking the spa door while laying on the ground, the citation reads.

Locked inside the spa room was the initial caller, who told police Belfour had been drinking downstairs, where he tried to fight another hotel employee and struck a glass window in anger before moving upstairs and trying to force his way into the spa room, according to the report.

Belfour played 18 seasons in the NHL, won an Olympic gold medal in 2002 with Team Canada and is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame. He started his career with the Chicago Blackhawks, winning rookie-of-the-year honors in 1990-91 and back-to-back Vezina trophies as goalie of the year in ’90-91 and ’91-’92.

Belfour had a brief stint with the San Jose Sharks before he joined the Dallas Stars, with whom he won a Stanley Cup in 1999. Belfour later joined the Toronto Maple Leafs for a three-year stint before playing one final year in the NHL with the Florida Panthers.
