Montreal Impact file official complaint with Police after Twitter Threats towards Davy Arnaud

Tom Szczerbowski

As per the Montreal Impact website, an official complaint was made to Montreal police last week as per twitter threats made towards captain Davy Arnaud.

Davy Arnaud's return to action was not the best for the Impact captain as the Montreal Impact lost a 4-3 thriller to the Colorado Rapids. Unfortunately, a fan did not react well at all after the loss. The tweets can be read below.

This unfortunate incident is unacceptable in any realm and nothing changes whether it's after a hockey game or a soccer game. Whether it's a professional game or an amateur pick-up game, threats (on twitter or elsewhere) are unacceptable.

@Sbarbosa17 did apologize later that day after realizing the extent of his tweet to Davy Arnaud. But the Impact and Major League Soccer are still pursuing legal actions in order to ensure the safety of its players, staff and coaches.
