Carolina Hurricanes' centre Eric Staal and younger brother, Pittsburgh Penguins' Jordan Staal, were among 14 people arrested in Cook County, Minnesota Monday after the elder Staal's bachelor party got out of hand.

Both brothers were charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing the legal process, while Jordan was also charged with consumption of alcohol while under 21 years of age. Eric's agent, Rick Curran, said he expected the misdemeanor charges to be reduced or dismissed.

According to a statement released by the Cook County Sheriff's office, after the Sheriff's office received complaints about "screaming, yelling and playing loud music," the group of about 20 was warned "multiple times" before it was ordered to leave the resort by Sheriff's deputies, a Minnesota State Patrol trooper and a U.S. Border Patrol agent at 3 a.m. Monday.

"After leaving the property, the group gathered on Highway 61 and began harassing passing motorists," the Sheriff's office said, at which point 14 members of the group were arrested at approximately 4 a.m. Eric Staal was one of 10 people to spend the night in jail.

Eric Staal scored 30 goals and picked up 40 assists last season while brother Jordan, a Calder trophy finalist, had 29 goals, 13 assists and lead the league in shorthanded goals.

This is why I love hockey.

In baseball, it's steroids.
In football, it's murders/shootings, etc.
In basketball, it's the shwoogies ****** chicks.

In hockey... we just get drunk.

Seriously, the last "story" you heard about a hockey player that made any news really was when Belfour and I want to say Ville Peltonnen (I know it was some Finn) got drunk and yelled at a cop or something. If these charges don't get dropped against them, I'll be pretty mad considering what other athletes get away with.

Sounds like an awesome party though.

I'm glad the Rangers' Staal isn't a jailbird.
