A Los Angeles Kings fan claims Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Corey Crawford sprayed water on him during the Kings' 5-2 Game 4 win on May 26. 

TMZ first reported the incident: 

"Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford is under investigation by the LAPD after allegedly squirting a heckler in the face with a water bottle during Monday's Game 4 loss to the Kings...TMZ Sports has learned.

"We know...27-year-old Kings fan Clark Wong filed a BATTERY report Monday night claiming he was 'sprayed' by the hockey player at Staples Center. 

"TMZ Sports spoke with Wong who says he was sitting behind the Blackhawks bench -- and was heckling Crawford -- when the goalie was pulled from the game toward the end of the third period. 

"That's when Crawford -- who's in the middle of a six-year, $36 million contract -- allegedly whipped out a water bottle and blasted him right in the face. 

"Wong says he believes the bottle was filled with backwash -- along with water -- and it has caused serious irritation to his eyes. Wong says he's going to a doctor to get his eyes checked. 

"League sources tell TMZ Sports...Wong was ejected from the game 3 to 5 minutes after the spraying incident for 'taunting the players' and it was while he was being escorted out of the arena that he began to rub his eyes, complaining about the pain.

"We're told Wong filed a report with police befoe leaving the arena.

"We spoke with LAPD Media Relations spokesperson Sally Madera who tells us,'A battery report was taken and the incident is under investigation.'

"We reached out to Crawford's camp for comment. So far, no word back."  

The Associated Press (via CBS Los Angeles) spoke with Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville to get his take on the issue. 

"I just heard about it on my way over. First I heard of it. I'm not aware of the situation other than what you just said. I'm not worried about it right now. I'm worrying about the game." 

Crawford did not talk to the media during Chicago's morning skate on May 28. The Associated Press update also says charges stemming from the alleged incident remain uncertain at this point. 

However, the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) confirmed to The Chicago Tribune that a battery report was indeed filed. 

Of the investigation, LAPD Commander Andy Smith told The Chicago Tribune,"It's a pretty low priority." 

For his part, Wong declined to make any comments to The Chicago Tribune, only noting that he has received several death threats. He's having his lawyer handle the matter for him.  

The Kings currently lead the series 3-1 heading into Game 5 at the United Center on Wednesday. Another win will propel them to their second Stanley Cup Finals stint in three years. 

Meanwhile, the Blackhawks are trying to win a second consecutive Stanley Cup title and their third in five seasons.
