New York Rangers and hockey bad boy, Sean Avery enjoyed a downtown jail cell after being arrested early Friday morning when accused of battery on an LAPD officer.

Authorities responded around 1 a.m. to a neighbor’s complaint about loud music at Avery’s Hollywood Hills home, police said.

Avery, 31, is alleged to have argued with officers before pushing one and slamming the door, said LAPD Officer Cleon Joseph. Following the confrontation, additional officers were called to the home and Avery eventually was taken into custody, he said. Avery is being held on suspicion of battery at an LAPD jail.

According to TMZ who first reported the incident, Sean challenged the cops to a fight during the altercation and was calling them “Fat Little Pigs.”  Avery was held on $20,000 bail and was released this morning at 8:10am and is scheduled to appear in court on Sept. 2nd.

Apparently the anger management classes he attended in 2008 didn’t take?
