Ex-Bruin Mike Milbury will not face any charges and his case over an alleged confrontation in Brookline with a boy following a peewee hockey game earlier this month has been thrown out.
Milbury’s legal team announced this afternoon that a clerk magistrate at Brookline District Court has ruled there is not enough evidence to move ahead in the case.
Milbury addressed the media right after saying the incident was just “an unfortunate misunderstanding.”
When asked when he will be back on the air as a hockey analyst, Milbury said he was saving his voice for “Christmas caroling.”
His attorney, Mark Berthiaume, said the magistrate ruled there was no probable cause to take the next step in court.
“Mike and his family are are happy to move on,” said Berthiaume. “Mike will be returning to work on the air very, very soon.”
The parents of the alleged victim have left court refusing to speak to the press. Their attorney, John Burke, said the parents are “disappointed” in the ruling.
“They are concerned about the message this sends because they believe that their son was assaulted,” he added.
Milbury is expected to be back in usual spots on TV as a result of this decision.
