Former Montreal Canadiens forward Mike Ribeiro was arrested last month for trespassing in Miami Beach.

According to the Montreal Gazette, which cited, Ribeiro was arrested on Oct. 27. Further details are not available.

Ribeiro, 37, was waived by the Nashville Predators in February. Following that, his agent Bob Perno claimed that Ribeiro became hard to contact.

“No one knows what he’s up to these days,” Perno said. “The problem, is that Mike doesn’t believe he’s sick. In his head, everything is fine. He left the rehab program offered by the NHL last winter. We’re really worried, but we can’t do anything.

Ribeiro has battled alcoholism throughout his NHL career.
