Semyon Varlamov, starting goaltender for the Colorado Avalanche, on Wednesday was arrested for domestic violence-related charges, the Denver Police Department said.

Police arrested Varlamov on second-degree kidnapping and third-degree assault charges, police said. The kidnapping charge is a Class 4 felony, punishable by to two to six years in prison, following Colorado statutes. Class 4 felony kidnapping is defined by taking someone and moving them to another place without their consent.

The assault charge is a misdemeanor.

Varlamov will remain in jail at least overnight because he cannot post bail with an assault charge. Varlamov must first appear before a judge — he has a court date set for 10 a.m. Thursday morning.

Varlamov, prison officials said, is in a cell alone because of his celebrity. When reached at Denver County jail, he refused an interview.

The police charges stem from an incident on Tuesday, police said.

Varlamov turned himself into police voluntarily earlier in the day, police said. He remains in Denver County jail, police said.

Colorado coach Patrick Roy, when reached by phone Wednesday night, had no comment.

The Avs issued a statement about the arrest:

"The Colorado Avalanche organization is aware of the allegations concerning Semyon Varlamov. At this time, and until the conclusion of this investigation, the Avalanche organization will have no further comment on this situation."
