Boston College Hockey Player Injured In 'Unprovoked Assault' At Restaurant

BOSTON (CBS/AP) — A Boston College hockey player is out indefinitely after he was assaulted at a Boston restaurant.

The university's athletic department said in a statement Sunday that graduate student Kevin Lohan, who happens to be Lindsay Lohan's cousin, was the victim of an "unprovoked assault" that occurred Friday at a Boylston Street restaurant.

Boston police told WBZ-TV they were called to Domino's at 1260 Boylston St. just after 2 a.m.. They said a woman reported that she and her boyfriend were standing in line at the pizza place when about six to eight people began pushing in line and one person punched her boyfriend in the face, knocking him down.

Surveillance video shows the group of men walk into the pizza shop and say something to Lohan and his girlfriend.

A verbal back and forth began and minutes later, Lohan was pushed, punched and then tackled to the ground.

In the minutes it takes police to arrive, the scuffle continues with a bloodied Lohan clearly trying to stop his assailants from leaving, unsuccessfully.

Lohan suffered a non-life-threatening injury to his jaw and was hospitalized, police said. The assault is still under investigation.

The 6-foot-5, 217-pound defenseman transferred to Boston College after four years at Michigan, where he was an assistant captain his senior year.
