Andrew J. Hau, 24, was charged with disorderly conduct on March 19. A referee who ejected Hau from the game complained to police that Hau later took a running start at him, lowered a shoulder and slammed him into the boards, the Hartford Courant reports.
"I made a mistake and I realize that, but it's getting blown out of proportion," Hau told the Collegian this week. "The police report was wrong, it was after the game, and I approached the ref and barely bumped him with my shoulder."
Hau is scheduled to be arraigned in Enfield on April 1.
