The District Attorney's Office issued an arrest warrant Friday for Daniel Hazlett, 21, charging him in connection with the vandalism done to a car belonging to a Montreal Gazette writer who was covering an NHL playoff game last month at the Wachovia Center, according to Philadelphia police Detective Anthony Vega.
The car, a 1999 Honda Accord belonging to Pat Hickey, had about $1,000 of damage and its Quebec license plate stolen during Game 1 of the conference finals, May 16. The Flyers defeated Montreal that night, 6-0.
After an investigation by Philadelphia police, the District Attorney's Office found enough evidence to approve the warrant, Vega said. He said Hazlett was charged with theft, theft from a motor vehicle, and criminal mischief.
Hazlett, who resides in Northeast Philadelphia, is expected to turn himself in to police, Vega said.
