In Canada on October 27, 2010 at 20:39

Winnipeg police say former junior hockey coach Graham James has been arrested as part of a sexual assault investigation.

Police say Mr. James gave himself up at Toronto’s Pearson International airport Wednesday morning and was escorted to Winnipeg, where he was being held in custody.

Police say he surrendered by mutual agreement. No further details have been released.

Earlier this month authorities issued a Canada-wide warrant for Mr. James on nine charges.

They include allegations from three new complainants, including former NHL star Theoren Fleury. The other two complainants can’t be named due to a publication ban.

Mr. James, who pleaded guilty to hundreds of assaults on two teenage boys in 1997, was quietly pardoned in 2007.

His last known address was in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Last week, Mr. James’s lawyer, Evan Roitenberg, said his client was committed to addressing the new charges.
