Nilan makes deal to avoid charges
QUINCY, Mass. -- A shoplifting charge against former NHL player Chris Nilan has been dismissed.
Braintree police say Nilan and another man were arrested Wednesday at a mall after Lord & Taylor security guards accused Nilan of walking out with a bathing suit under his clothes.
Police say the 51-year-old Nilan denied stealing and scuffled with the guards.
The case was dismissed Thursday after Nilan agreed to stay out of the store and paid $100 court costs.
His home number is unlisted.
