Any judge in the right frame of mind would look at the video, look at the kid and put him in jail for 24hrs for wasting court time. Be a man. And to the last bit, no, if I asked for it I should be able to take it.
Guess it depends on most peoples ethics/morals as to how far they would go to make a quick buck. The question you have to ask is did any personal injury occur in this case? From the looks of things he got what he asked for, to interact with the player exiting the ice if he did not expect what he got than maybe he is more stupid than he looks. But it was nothing more than a shirt tug.
