An Ottawa police officer said Wednesday he does not expect Flyers captain Claude Giroux to face any charges for a an alleged butt-grabbing incident on Tuesday night.

Giroux spent Tuesday night in custody in an Ottawa jail cell, according to the Ottawa Sun.

A police source confirmed that he was released Wednesday morning.

The Sun reported Giroux was arrested for repeatedly grabbing the buttocks of a male police officer, and it said alcohol is believed to be involved.The paper said the police officer warned Giroux after his butt was grabbed, and that the star center then did it again and was arrested.

"Under Canadian law, I cannot give out any information unless charges are made," said Marc Soucy, an Ottawa police spokesman, "and we do not expect the police to make any charges."

Soucy admitted he is a die-hard fan of the Ottawa Senators.

"I'm hoping after this story, the (Flyers) trade him to the Sens," he kidded.

There was no fine assessed in the incident, said Chuck Benoit, another Ottawa police officer. He said only one arrest was made in the incident.
