LAWRENCEVILLE -- A visiting pro hockey player spent Friday night in Duluth attempting to stop the shots of the Gwinnett Gladiators.
Police said he spent early Sunday morning groping a waitress at the Arena Tavern and screaming racial insults.
He's spent the time since in the Gwinnett County jail.
Zoltan Hetenyi, a Hungarian-born goaltender for the Orlando Solar Bears of the ECHL, was arrested early Sunday and charged with three counts of sexual battery and one count of disorderly conduct. As of Monday afternoon, he had not posted the $40,400 bond required for his release.
According to separate warrants, Hetenyi, 25, was at the Arena Tavern from about 1:30 to 3 a.m. Sunday when he "grabbed (a waitress') buttocks with both his hands," "grabbed the victim's buttocks a second time" and grabbed "the victim's breast with his hands."
The warrants also accused Hetenyi of screaming that "he hated all Americans" and black people, using the n-word.
A full incident report from Gwinnett County police was not available Monday. Warrants made no mention if alcohol was involved.
The Solar Bears were in town playing Friday and Sunday games against the Gladiators. Heteyni started Friday's game in net, allowing three goals in a 3-1 Gladiators win.
Hetenyi had been on loan from the Peoria Rivermen of the AHL for only about a month, Solar Bears spokesman Bob Mills said, and is no longer a member of the Orlando organization.
"We've already informed (Peoria) that he will no longer be playing for our team," Mills said Monday.
