Colorado Avalanche goaltender and former Capitals netminder Semyon Varlamov was arrested Wednesday night on domestic violence related charges including kidnapping and assault.

Here’s the full explanation of the charges from the Denver Post:

Varlamov turned himself in to police around 6 p.m. and is being held without bond on second-degree kidnapping and third-degree assault charges, police said. The kidnapping charge is a Class 4 felony, punishable by to two to six years in prison, according Colorado statutes. Class 4 felony kidnapping is defined by taking someone and moving them to another place without their consent.

The assault charge is a misdemeanor.

Varlamov was to remain in jail overnight because he could not post bail due to the assault charge. Varlamov must first appear before a judge — he has a court date set for 10 a.m. Thursday.

Thursday morning, details about the charges emerged. The attorney of the accuser spoke with CBS 4 Denver and alleged that Varlamov threw the woman into a wall, stomped on her and that this is not the first time he has assaulted her.
