Should Guy Lafleur sue the police?
Wed, April 2, 2008

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.

Lafleur broke the law by helping his son break the court-ordered curfew,then he drove his son to a hotel to have sex with a underage girl.He tarnished his reputation and the parents of the sixteen year old should be suing him.

Yes, if he has not been charged or found guilty of anything then why not? he may have lost personal income, personal freedom and experienced anxiety over this fiasco. I can only picture myself in the scenario and go "look, my son might be the bad guy here, but I shouldn't have to pay for his crime". I'd be pissed too and would sue. Do you think Mulroney wasn't pissed over the airbus scandal? I would definitely had sued though if this was a case ending up like the "Marshall" case a few years ago.

He tarnished his own reputation by becoming a criminal. Criminals get arrested, what they should really do is put him in jail. Prjury, and obstruction of justice are criminal offences. If you don't want to be arrested then live by the law. Its that simple!

From working with hockey players and seeing all the things they get away with, I would have to say Guy better get used to being treated like the average person instead of a celebrity. First of all, why is his son going to a hotel for sex from a 16 year old? Did this start at an earlier age for her? Hello ... legalities people. Also, why do they think they are entitled to do what ever they want and get so indignant when something is done about it? Now that he's not in the lime light, is this his way of getting a bigger income for the year? The attitude of Quebec is really showing here; he lies to the courts, commits perjury and now sues for 3.5 million because he put himself in that situation in the first place. By the way, all this stuff started by the actions of Guy's dear son and Guy wouldn't be in this situation if he didn't keep covering for his son and driving him to where he shouldn't have been in the first place. I hope his son is happy with the way he's been catered to and sees the results. If Guy isn't going to show him how to behave then this is what happens. I'm just hoping the son doesn't think that acting like Guy is the way to go.

Lets see if I got this right he commits perjury, obstruction of justice, and contempt of court and now he is suing for being arrested? I hope he loses and has to pay court costs. He is the one who tarnished his reputation, he proved himself to be a liar.

What makes these so-called celebs think that they should be given preferential treatment?

Just swallow the lump and get on with your life.

Absolutely, it is ridiculous that a noteworthy person such as Lafleur should be subjected to such humiliating tactics. He should have been issued a summons.

I don't in any way condone what Lafleur did initially, personally he needs to get his priorities straight and when he does, maybe his son will learn a bit of responsibility. But Lafleur is not the criminal here and he did not deserve to have a warrant issued. Somebody was trying to prove a political point and I hope they find out who that was and punish them

He can do what he wants. I think it should be thrown out of court. He should have thought about his reputation before he did what he did if its so important to him.
