2/1/2008 - NHL

MONTREAL -- Former hockey star Guy Lafleur turned himself
over to Montreal police Thursday, a day after a warrant was drawn
up for his arrest for giving contradictory evidence as a witness at
his son's bail hearing.

Lafleur's lawyer, Jean-Pierre Rancourt, told French-language
television network TVA that Lafleur handed himself over to
authorities.

Rancourt originally said Lafleur would meet with police on
Friday.

Rancourt said Lafleur was released on a promise to appear at the
Montreal courthouse on Feb. 7.
