Prosecutors now have Chara's case

While we all wait with bated breath to see how this summer’s greatest crime mystery will conclude, the Canadian Press tells us today that the police investigation into Zdeno Chara has been concluded.

According to CP, via TSN, the case over Chara’s March 8 hit on Montreal forward Max Pacioretty has been transferred to criminal prosecutors.

CP writes:

Now that the investigation is over Crown lawyers must decide whether to lay charges over Chara’s devastating hit against Montreal Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty.

Chara was interviewed by police over the summer after the cops refrained from hassling him during the Bruins’ run to the Stanley Cup championship. Pacioretty has recovered well from a fractured vertebrae and concussion he suffered as a result of the hit. He’s expected to be fine when training camp opens next month.

I can’t wait to see the “Law & Order” Montreal, ripped-from-the-headlines version of this story.
