Former NHL goaltender Ed Belfour was arrested Tuesday in Kentucky on charges of third-degree criminal mischief and alcohol intoxication in a public place, according to the Daily News in Bowling Green.

The report said Bowling Green police arrived at the Kentucky Grand Hotel and Spa after receiving a complaint about a drunk and disorderly guest. Officers found Belfour laying on the floor "clutching a curtain rod that had been ripped out of the dry wall above a window next to him" and "kicking the spa door while he was laying on the ground."

Belfour also allegedly attempted to fight a hotel employee and hit a glass window.
