NHL’s Arizona Coyotes suspend owner after he is arrested for assaulting wife in Aspen


Barroway was released on a $2,500 personal recognizance bond Friday. The bond was set at a virtual hearing in front of 9th Judicial District Chief Judge John Neiley. Neiley also granted Barroway’s wife a full protection order.  

According to Pitkin County Deputy District Attorney Tony Hershey Barroway will be allowed to travel, but he is prohibited from consuming alcohol or other substances. And he must have a third-party involved when he and his wife exchange their children. 

According to Barroway’s attorney the husband and wife live in different homes in Arizona.
