Police won't pursue charges against stripping hockey team

Posted: Updated:

BOISE, Idaho - Police in Idaho's capital won't pursue charges against a junior hockey team whose members held a strip shootout at a city-owned rink two weeks ago.

Boise Police spokeswoman Lynn Hightower told the Idaho Statesman that officers concluded a 17-year-old member of the Idaho Junior Steelheads who mooned a teammate didn't intentionally violate the city's decency laws.

The Idaho Junior Steelheads had already been forbidden from using Idaho Ice World for four days, and the player who dropped his drawers briefly also served a three-game suspension.

Idaho Junior Steelheads owner John Olver says his team has been sufficiently punished and is ready to move on.

The strip shootout included players shedding an article of clothing or equipment when they missed a shot. It emulated a similar drill held by a pro hockey team, the Tampa Bay Lightning.
