Chris Moorhouse Reportedly Charged In Wayne Simmonds Banana Throwing Incident

London, Ontario resident Chris Moorhouse, the man accused of throwing a banana peel at Philadelphia Flyers winger Wayne Simmonds, was reportedly arrested and charged for the incident on Wednesday. Simmonds was in the midst of a taking a penalty shot against the Detroit Red Wings on London last week when a banana came flying from the stands in what appeared to be a racially-charged incident.

Moorhouse reportedly faces an interesting charge for the incident, which seems sort of like a catch-all for situations such as the one involving the banana.

London, Ontario native Chris Moorhouse has been charged with "engaging in a prohibited activity on a premise under the provincial Trespass to Property Act" for his alleged involvement in that ugly situation. CTV reports that a conviction carries a maximum fine of $2,000.

Three days after the incident, Simmonds was caught on tape yelling what appeared to be a homophobic slur at Sean Avery during a preseason matchup against the New York Rangers. He will not, however, face disciplinary action for whatever it was he yelled after the NHL deemed the evidence inconclusive.
