Lafleur faces arrest warrant for conflicting testimony in son's case

MONTREAL -- Montreal police have issued an arrest warrant for
former hockey star Guy Lafleur, accused of giving contradictory
evidence as a witness at his son's bail hearing.

Lafleur's lawyer, Jean-Pierre Rancourt, says the former
Montreal Canadiens great will turn himself over to police Friday morning.

Mark Lafleur, 23, faces more than 20 criminal charges, including
sexually assaulting a minor, armed assault, uttering threats and
forcible confinement between 2004 and 2007.

A Quebec judge said the elder Lafleur testified before a court
in November that his son was abiding by a court-ordered curfew
while he was staying with his parents. But Lafleur later admitted
he drove his son to hotels to spend nights with his teenage
girlfriend.
