Lafleur's son in trouble again

Arrested Wednesday in connection with domestic violence call

Guy Lafleur’s son Mark was back in handcuffs Wednesday night after police answered a domestic violence call at the home where the younger Lafleur is on probation, having served 15 months of house arrest for assaulting his ex-girlfriend. The previous case gave rise to a perjury charge against Lafleur, the former Montreal Canadiens star, who gave contradictory testimony during court proceedings against his son. Lafleur was initially convicted but the decision was overturned this summer on appeal. Mark Lafleur was released on a promise to appear in court on Dec. 14.
