Varlamov Turns Himself In On Domestic Violence Charge (UPDATED)


Colorado Avalanche goalie Semyon Varlamov turned himself in to Denver Police detectives for domestic violence related charges.

Varlamov has been charged with third-degree assault (a Colorado Class 1 felony) and second-degree kidnapping (a Colorado Class 4 felony) from an incident Tuesday with someone whom he had an "intimate relationship."

Denver Police are saying Varlamov turned himself in around 6 p.m. local time. He is in the Denver County jail with no bond (since you can't bond out on assault charges in Colorado), and will be in court Thursday morning.

The Avalanche sent out a statement:

"The Colorado Avalanche organization is aware of the allegations concerning Semyon Varlamov. At this time, and until the conclusion of this investigation, the Avalanche organization will have no further comment on this situation."

From Ryan Parker and Nick Groke at the Denver Post:

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 will remain in jail overnight because he cannot post bail due to the assault charge.

Here's what Varlamov has been up to, according to the attorney of the accused...
