"The Ducks severed promotional ties Friday with professional skateboarder Mike Vallely after Vallely was involved in a fracas in the stands of Honda Center in Thursday night’s game.
Mike Vallely, also known as “Mike V,” was arrested, cited for fighting in public and released for his involvement in the incident, according to Sgt. Rick Martinez of the Anaheim Police Department.
The incident occurred during the ‘three stars of the game’ presentation after the Ducks defeated Tampa Bay, 4-3, in overtime. Ducks captain Scott Niedermayer, the No.1 star of the game, skated out to the ice and went to hand his stick to a girl in the stands.
Martinez said those who were interviewed in and around the area said that another man attempted to grab the stick from the girl when Vallely, who Martinez said had indicated that the stick was intended for his daughter, intervened (Vallely has two daughters, according to several Web sites).
Niedermayer told reporters Friday that he intended to hand the stick to the girl."
This petition is for fans of the Ducks and Mike V.
Maybe Mike V. over-reacted to the guy who tried to steal the stick from his daughter. What would you have done if it happened to your kid
Since no charges were filed, The Anaheim Ducks should give Mike another chance.
If you support Mike V., please sign this petition.
