Erin Andrews, Jarret Stoll Canoodle After Hockey Player’s Arrest For Cocaine: Stoll To Help At-Risk Kids [Video]
Erin Andrews and Jarret Stoll have been noticeably absent from the public spotlight since the L.A. Kings player was arrested for felony possession of cocaine last month. Now, however, Erin and her boyfriend have emerged from the shadows as they showed up at the Amazon Prime Summer Soiree in West Hollywood, reported People.
Andrews, known as the bubbly co-host of Dancing with the Stars, and Jarret have not appeared together since Stoll’s arrest in April.
That incident occurred when security guards at the MGM Grand Wet Republic pool complex, conducting what they termed a routine search, discovered that Jarret, 32, possessed 3.3 grams of cocaine and several ecstasy capsules.
In addition to Erin and Jarret, the Amazon Prime Summer Soiree attracted celebrities such as Kris Jenner and Kendall Jenner, as the Inquisitr reported.
But while it was just another public appearance for the momager of the Kardashians and supermodel of the Jenner family, for Andrews and Stoll, it marked what they hope will be an end to the rumors that they have broken up following his highly-publicized arrest.
Following that arrest, Stoll entered a guilty plea to two reduced misdemeanor charges, including one of trespassing and one of “provoking commission of breach of peace,” reported the Los Angeles Times.
Originally charged with one felony count of possession of cocaine, Jarret then faced an amended criminal complaint that contained no mention of either ecstasy or cocaine.
However, according to the report of Stoll’s arrest, he said “yes” when questioned as to whether the powder found in the search was cocaine.
Per the terms of the plea agreement, Jarret will perform 32 hours of community service.
David Chesnoff, who is Stoll’s attorney, said the Kings’ Stanley Cup champion team member has already started that obligation.
“Now that the case has been resolved, I am committed to meeting all of my obligations to the court and I’m grateful for the chance to offer guidance and to share positive life lessons to kids as part of the resolution of this matter,” said Jarret in a formal statement. “My focus remains on hockey and I’m looking forward to getting back on the ice next season.”
During those 32 hours, Stoll will create a hockey program for Las Vegas area at-risk youth and do volunteer work for the Salvation Army. In addition, he will give that program $50,000 worth of hockey gear.
“He’s a great athlete. That’s his sport. We knew [the NHL] could be coming and we thought it would be something that would catch the attention of the at-risk kids and provide Jarret a forum to tell them about how important a good lifestyle and health is,” said Chesnoff.
As for Erin, that West Hollywood soiree was prefaced by a quick public appearance at the end of June with her boyfriend. Andrews, putting the lid on rumors that she and Jarret had broken up, went with Stoll to a NASCAR event at the Sonoma Raceway, reported TMZ.
It marked a mini-celebration of the fact that Stoll could have spent four years in jail if he had failed to strike that plea agreement.
