It was reported earlier yesterday that New Jersey Devils associate coach and former Panthers interim head coach Andrew Brunette was arrested Wednesday for driving under the influence in Broward County, Florida.

New details have emerged from the incident.

According to an arrest report, the incident started outside a bar with an illegally parked golf cart owned by Brunette. He told a sheriff deputy that he was leaving, as the citation was being written, but
«the deputy observed Brunette's speech was slurred and that he was unsteady on his feet."

The deputy then conducted a traffic stop 15 minutes later when he observed Brunette drive the golf cart away and blow through two stop signs.


«Deputies said when they asked Brunette for his documents, he provided the registration and insurance for the golf cart, but handed over his wife's driver's license and stated it was because he wasn't driving,»


The Devils released a statement that they «we're aware of the reports» regarding Brunette and were «in the process of gathering additional information.»

According to Broward County court records, Brunette was involved in two other traffic infractions while on Florida's staff as its assistant and head coach. He was cited for going 27 mph in a 15 mph school zone in 2021. Brunette pleaded not guilty before a traffic hearing officer dismissed it three months later. Brunette was also cited and fined for traveling 58 mph in a 40 mph area.

It's never a good scene when anyone gets in trouble with the law and even more so when it's someone in the public eye.
