LOS ANGELES (CBS) — New York Rangers star Sean Avery was arrested Friday morning for allegedly shoving a police officer at his Los Angeles home.

TMZ reports Avery was having a party at his home in the Hollywood Hills when a neighbor complained about the noise. When police came at 1 a.m. local time, police say Avery answered the door, shoved the police officer, and slammed the door shut, TMZ reported.

Police knocked a second time and Avery let the officer in, TMZ reported.

He cooperated as he was arrested on charges of battery on a peace officer, and is being held on $20,000 bail, TMZ reported.
