(Newser) – If Canadian junior hockey player Chris Doyle "was charged with being a colossal asshole, I would find him guilty," a judge said Friday. "Of assault causing bodily harm, I find him not guilty." The verdict ends Doyle's assault trial for showing up drunk at his ex-girlfriend's apartment and punching a door that then hit a woman in the face and broke her nose, which he admitted doing but said was an accident, CBC reports.
