Story body

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Carolina Hurricanes center Eric Staal and his younger brother Jordan of the Pittsburgh Penguins were among 14 people arrested in Minnesota following a rowdy bachelor party for Eric Staal.

Misdemeanor charges were filed after partygoers were arrested around four a-m Monday while harassing passing motorists along Route 61. Officials say that occurred about an hour after they were kicked out of the Lutsen Resort and Sea Villas in Lutsen, Minnesota, because of "screaming, yelling and playing loud music."

That's according to state and local authorities in Cook County, Minnesota.

Eric Staal, who's 22, is to be married next month.

He's charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing the legal process. Jordan Staal, who's 18, faces a charge of underage consumption of alcohol.

Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford tells The Associated Press he doesn't foresee any action being taken by the organization.
