NHL enforcer Peter Worrell may often get away with things on the ice, but off the ice is a different matter.
Especially if you try to pass yourself off as friend and former Florida Panthers teammate Andreas Lilja.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports that Worrell, a former Panthers forward who now belongs to the Colorado Avalanche, will be arraigned in court on Wednesday on charges stemming from a traffic incident last month in which he identified himself as Lilja.
Worrell, who is black, is six-foot-six and 240 pounds. Lilja, who is white, is a six-foot-three, 225-pounder from Sweden.
Worrell, who has had his license suspended twice because of two DUI convictions, was arrested and charged with driving with a suspended license and resisting arrest without violence, according to the state attorney's office. He was also cited for having an obscured tag.
Worrell, his attorney Mitchell Polay and Lilja could not be reached for comment.
