NEW YORK (WCBS 880)  Two NHL players have been charged with assault for beating up their roommate over a bill at 1 OAK nightclub, police say.

Police say Frank “Sonny” Milano, 23, a forward with the Columbus Blue Jackets, and Anthony-John “A.J.” Greer, 23, a forward with the Colorado Avalanche, were arrested and charged with misdemeanor assault charges in their West Village apartment for allegedly attacking their 28-year-old roommate.

Officials say that the roommate had visible bruises and complained of injuries to his torso and the left side of his jaw when they responded to a 911 call at 5:30 a.m. for an assault in progress

He refused medical attention.

The Daily News reports that the three men had returned from partying at 1 OAK in Chelsea, where a friend of their roommate promised them table service for $600 each.

When the hockey players were told they owed a little over $1,000, they became enraged, blaming their roommate and allegedly beating him up.

Milano and Greer were both held at the 6th Precinct station house and issued summonses to appear in court at a later date and released.
