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?

Just swallow the lump and get on with your life.

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
