Mark Pavelich, who was a member of the of the 1980 USA “Miracle On Ice” team and later played in the NHL, allegedly attacked his neighbor with a metal pole after the two went fishing, according to the Duluth News Tribune.

He was arrested Monday on charges of second- and third-degree assault, possession of an illegal shotgun and possessing a gun with a scratched off serial number in a Minnesota District Court. His bail is set at $250,000.
