BROWARD COUNTY, FL– Andrew Brunette, a former interim head coach for the Florida Panthers, was arrested in Broward County on DUI charges.
Brunette was taken into custody on Wednesday after he was pulled over during a traffic stop.
Officials say an officer noticed Brunette fail to yield at a traffic sign and pulled him over.
The officer then noticed that Brunette appeared to be under the influence.
He was taken to the Broward County Jail where his bond was set at $500.
Brunette was named the interim coach for the Florida Panthers last season after coach Joel Quenneville was forced to resign due to a sexual misconduct case.
Brunette would coach the Panthers to the Eastern Conference semifinals, where they lost to the Lightning.
The following season, the Panthers opted for Paul Maurice and Brunette went on to coach for The Devils.
The Devils have released a statement about Brunette’s arrest:
“We are aware of the reports today regarding Associate Coach Andrew Brunette and are currently in the process of gathering additional information,” a Devils spokesman told The Post.
