    The former tough guy of the national hockey League Dave “Tiger” Williams has been charged with sexual assault and assault on an air hostess after an incident during a military flight to destination in Latvia.

    The investigators of the canadian armed Forces have filed Thursday, charges against Dave Williams, the former man-fort of the NHL which included the colors of the Toronto Maple Leafs and Vancouver Canucks. He faces two counts of sexual assault and assault

    The alleged offences date back to last December, during a flight on board of which Williams was taking place in the framework of a visit to authorized morale on the staff of the canadian armed Forces in deployment.

    “Every allegation of sexual assault is taken seriously by the national investigation Service canadian Forces. In all cases, regardless of who is the accused, we strive to restore the dignity of victims by investigating their complaints,” said lieutenant-colonel Kevin Cadman by way of a press release.

    Dave “Tiger” Williams was known more for his fists than for his points in the NHL, as evidenced by its 3971 penalty minutes accumulated over the course of his career, a record he is still the holder. Notably, he was renowned for his exuberant celebrations on the ice when he scored.

    The charges will be dealt with by the civil court of Ottawa. No date has yet been set for his trial.
