Police in London, Ontario, held a press conference this afternoon to announce the arrest of 26-year-old London resident Christopher Moorhouse for allegedly throwing a banana at Wayne Simmonds of the Philadelphia Flyers. The incident happened when Simmonds, one of the NHL's few black players, was attempting a penalty shot during a preseason game last week in London against the Detroit Red Wings. Simmonds has since paid the bigotry forward this week by calling Sean Avery of the New York Rangers a "fucking faggot." But enough about that right now.
