Sydor released on $12K bail; here are the official charges


James OBrien

The situation is a little clearer for Minnesota Wild assistant coach Darryl Sydor as of Friday evening after he was released on $12K bail.

As mentioned in this post, the 43-year-old was arrested on suspected drunk driving and child endangerment charges on Thursday. Sydor reportedly recorded a blood-alcohol level of .30 percent while driving his 12-year-old son to a hockey game.

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that he’s facing “two gross misdemeanor counts of second-degree driving while impaired with two or more aggravating factors.”

Those two aggravating factors are: endangerment of a child and his BAC exceeding .16.

The Wild released a terse statement on the matter, not providing information regarding how this may affect Sydor’s status with the team. Their training camp begins on Sept. 17.
