New York Rangers star Sean Avery was arrested at his Hollywood home early Friday and charged with battery on a police officer, a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman tells PEOPLE.

The arrest took place at 1 a.m, said the rep. A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Police Department’s Hollywood division also confirmed the arrest, and said on Friday morning, “He is in jail and still here – he will be bailing out shortly. He battered one of our officers.”

Police were responding to noise complaints when Avery, 31, was arrested. “He didn’t want to turn down the music at his home,” said the Hollywood Police rep.

The hockey star’s bail reportedly was set at $20,000.
