Former Carolina Hurricanes defenseman and TSN hockey analyst Aaron Ward was arrested Friday by Cary police on misdemeanor charges of assault on a female and interfering with emergency communications.

Ward, 42, was taken into custody at his home in Cary at approximately 2:45 p.m. Friday. When contacted by Canes Country on Friday afternoon, Cary police had no additional comment on the situation.

According to WRAL's Jeff Gravley, Ward's wife placed a 911 call to police Friday afternoon. WRAL also reports that due to the nature of the charges, Ward will spend a mandatory 48 hours in the Wake County jail.

Ward spent five seasons with the Hurricanes, winning the Stanley Cup with the organization in 2006.
