New York Rangers forward Sean Avery was arrested at his home early Friday morning for battery on a police officer in Hollywood Hills, California.

The Associated Press reports that Avery was jailed for seven hours before being released after he posted $20,000 bail.

According to NBC New York, Avery was having a party at his home when noise complaints from neighbours twice brought police to investigate.

On the officers' second visit, the report said that Avery allegedly argued with police and pushed an officer out of the way to go back inside his house.

The report added that Avery closed the door and refused to speak to officers. After additional police were called to the scene, Avery eventually did come out and co-operated and was arrested for battery of a police officer.

A Rangers spokesperson said that they will discuss the matter with Avery and have no further comment at this time.

The NHL is also investigating the situation, but isn't commenting at this time.
