I know that he had an accident around 1981-82 that was generally assumed to be alcohol related. There was a lot of urban myth surrounding that night and everyone says they know what really happened, but no charges were filed. That was a story in itself.

If he has dui's on his record, it's news to me though I don't know that he doesn't.

Was that the mix up where he crashed his Porsche in a tunnel and cut his ear? I recall thinking at the time that it was very Van Gogh of the Flower.

Apparently his son was involved with an underage girl, I believe. Perhaps we should call his son "The De-Flower".

Yeah, I remember that...a pole or something? From what I recall, a few inches the other way and Guy was toast.

I met Guy Lafleur years go at a bar after a Old Timer's game and the guy was a nice guy...

I met Benoit Brunet years after that and the impression i got is i was not impressed...

Having said that if he lied and gets time it better be a lot less time than his son...his son is the one that commited the crime...

what happened anyways?

Im not saying he did the right thing by lying, none of us can actually be judgmental since none of us have been through it. I just meant to say that its completely understandable and it doesnt deserve any jail time.
This is actually a fascinating discussion, and if I had time I might have a lot to say, but is this subject better suited to the Lounge or something?

Depends how hot she is. I'm pretty sure the law makes an exception if she looks like Elisha Cuthbert
Come on already. This topic should be moved off the hockey board.

Guy could rightly tell they court he's too stupid to know if he lied or not.

"Guy Lafleur has done more for the Quebecois than the government. Corporal Denis Lortie missed his shot, but someday someone will NOT fail. They will ALL die." - Caller On CKAC

Jesus ****ing Christ man.

Had Rocket done the same thing...well he wouldn't have, but had he been involved in some like this, I can see that kind of reaction happening because of the cultural impact but....Guy Lafleur? Great player no doubt. But not THAT kind of icon. Not the kind of icon or leader or whatever you're ready to kill or die for...

It's not how great of an Icon Guy Lafleur is.

It's how utterly ****ed up radio is, and even more hopeless the callers are.

Seriously, these things are not meant to be listened by persons of sound mind.

If I had a radio show on CKAC I'd call a few callers retards. Could I do that? If the bosses would say it was to risky of losing sponsors and listeners I'd tell my bosses listen...that's how my show is going to work. It's going to become something listeners are going to be waiting to hear. The hosts are always way to polite with the callers.

Is status as a national hero shouldn't allow him to dodge this, we're not judging the hockey player here, we're judging the action of a canadian citizen who tought he was above the law.
lol you still have to learn about life.. You know nothing about his son and Guy Lafleur personally, you have no clue about what really happened, you can make all judgements you want, you are not in his shoes.. Guy probably decided to believe in his son and give him another chance..

That sounds very much like him. I'm sure he did believe his son's words.

He's a man of heart and such men usually dont go with numbers and/or stats, they go with what they feel.

How can one blame a father feeling for his son?

Apparently Guy Lafleur's son twice broke a court imposed curfew while on weekend leave at his parents home. Hard to understand why Guy didn't let the girl visit him at their home rather than drive him to a motel after curfew. Because the son broke curfew he is now in jail awaiting trial rather than staying at a half-way house.

I don't see why the law would be going so hard after Guy by issuing an arrest warrant. It's not like Guy tried to help his son escape to another country to avoid the consequences of the numerous serious charges he will face at trial.

I agree, but that's also exactly why you would never be on the air.

That's why Guy is firing back at them and suing them as well.
According to Lafleur, basically the prosecutor, the cop and i forgot who else are trying to make a bigger name for themselves because of Guy Lafleur's popularity. So he's suing them back but i forgot what the exact term was.

They filter the calls and only take what they want, so I guess that's what they wanted to hear.

I've heard the part with Réjean Tremblay live and it was one of the worse case of populism I've ever seen...

bye bye guy
This has to go down as one of the stupidest comment I have ever read on this board. How the hell was Guy lucky during his good years??????? He had more talent than any other player of his era. If anything, if he would of taken a little bit better care of himself physically, he could of put up even more impressive numbers, and maybe avoided some of the injuries that plague his latter NHL days.

Also, Guy HAS said some stupid things over the years (as a person who idolize GUY as a kid, trust me, I wish he wouldn't open his mouth around a reproter EVER!!!), but that doesn't make him a bad person.

It seems like nearly everyone in this thread is ready to convict Lafluer already. May I remind you that we have the persumtion of innocence in this country. Until either Lafluer or his son are proven guilty they are still considered inocent. I'm not saying that they arn't guilty but they do deserve there day in court before people start assuming they are guilty.

Second of all I've seen reference made to the fact that Heatley didn't get jail time used as an arguement that Lafluer won't get jail time simply because they both have celebrity status. They Heatley case was enterly different. He killed one of his best friends and team mates in a tragic car accident, obviously he never intented to do this and the guilt he has to live with is likely punishment enough. Second the Snyder family didn't want to see Heatley do jail time, they too realized that what happened was a mistake and that their son would not have wanted to see Healtey spent time behind bars.

Here's an artice on the whole Lafluer situation,
