2 Red Wings players facing lawsuit for loud parties

Posted: Updated:
ROYAL OAK, Mich. (WJBK) - Most Red Wings fans can agree 23-year-old Tomas Tatar is a talented addition to the roster, but his apparent behavior off the ice could get him shutout of his downtown Royal Oak condo.

A complaint filed Thursday alleges Tatar, who is renting fellow player Darren Helms's condo, is throwing loud parties when he's in town. Music is apparently played at a high volume and pounding on the walls is happening until four in the morning.  

Helm and Tatar, given two notices each, have at least four complaints dating back to October of 2013. Royal Oak police tell FOX 2's Erika Erickson they've been to the lofts at least five times for noise complaints.

One Royal Oak business owner says Tatar has even bragged about his parties before.

But three neighbors tell Erickson Tatar has been nothing but neighborly. Others say he's young and to let him have his fun.

Right now, the issue is just at the complaint stage in the courts. Next, the court will issue a Show Cause Order, in which Helm and Tatar will have to explain why they shouldn't be evicted.

If a judge sides with the condo association, they will likely have 30 days to vacate.

If Helm and Tatar don't appear in court, a warrant for their arrest could be issued.
