MONTREAL -- Montreal hockey great Guy Lafleur is suing Montreal police and Quebec's solicitor general for a total of $3.5 million because of the warrant issued for his arrest earlier this year.
The suit targets Crown prosecutor Lise Archambault, Montreal police officer Francoise Fortin and their respective employers, lawyer Jean-Pierre Rancourt said in an interview yesterday.
Rancourt said Lafleur's reputation has been tarnished by the decision by authorities to proceed with the arrest warrant instead of a summons.
Should Guy Lafleur sue the police?
And by the way, my Dad never took me to Hotels to spend the nights with my girlfriend...WTF!!! Geez I had to steal his car and make out in the back seat lol

I agree with you that hockey players should not expect preferential treatment from the law, even if they were "superstars" and household names. What I do take exception to though is your reference to "the attitude of Quebec really showing here". I don't know if you are a resident of the province and being critical of your "own house" (if you are I guess you are also entitled to your opinion), but if you are not then you are being blatently racist and ethnocentric in your comments. Last time I checked, Quebecers are no more or less moral than the rest of us. Yes, we all have the responsibility to show good judgment, accept the consequences of our actions and by so doing, be good role models for our children. Let's not cloud the issue with race and politics.
