An Edmonton NHL player is placed under arrest for attempting to rob his employer's pharmacy.
A member of the National Hockey League's Edmonton Oilers was placed under arrest tonight for attempting to rob a Rexall Pharmacy store in North-East Edmonton this evening. Mike Brown was caught on camera breaking into the store at 9 pm local time and proceeding to steal the entire cash register after he failed to open it. Police later received an anonymous tip, and arrested Brown in his home.
Brown immediately owed up to the crime, and claimed to have done it out of spite. Brown described an incident from earlier in the day when Rexall CEO and Edmonton Oilers owner Darryl Katz ran into him at Rexall Place, and proceed to make jokes about Brown's mustache. When interviewed by CBC reporter Terry Milewski, Katz claimed that Brown's reaction to the jokes was "aggressive" and that Brown became extremely volatile. When asked about this in a press conference Brown proceeded to yell "NOBODY MAKES FUN OF MY MUSTACHE AND GETS AWAY WITH IT".
Brown is currently out on bail, which was payed for by his barber because Brown is his "favourite customer in the entire world, with quite the lovely mustache". Regardless, Katz claims that Brown will never play a game in an Oilers jersey again.
