Flyers defenseman Evgeny Medvedev was charged last week with driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance and use or possession of drug paraphernalia.

Medvedev, 33, is charged with having a blood alcohol content of more than .16 percent - more than double the legal limit for drivers - when he was stopped by Lower Moreland police last month, according to court documents.

Medvedev is a Russian national who signed a one-year contract with the Flyers last May.

Police said he was driving on Byberry Road in Lower Moreland Township early one morning last month when he was stopped by police.

In addition to five misdemeanor-level DUI and drug offenses, Medvedev was cited for driving without a license, disregarding traffic lanes, and not using headlights.

He is set to appear for a preliminary hearing on the charges on June 15. His lawyer, Anthony Petrone, did not immediately return a message left Friday afternoon.

The Flyers could not be reached for comment.
