Arizona Coyotes’ owner, Alex Meruelo, intends to acquire the NHL team’s minority shareholder Andrew Borroway’s ownership interests. Borroway was recently acquitted of all domestic violence and assault charges that were raised against him earlier this year after an altercation with his wife.

Borroway currently holds a 5% stake in the Coyotes and Meruelo is actively in the process of buying back his interest in the team. Meruelp acquired control over the franchise from Barroway in July of 2019 after Barroway had held majority ownership of the Coyotes for almost five years.

In response to his arrest and the ensuing allegations, including charges of second-degree strangulation assault and third-degree assault, Barroway was placed under an indefinite suspension.

In early September, the Pitkin County district attorney’s office in Colorado announced that Barroway’s charges had been dismissed. Following the announcement that the case had been dismissed, Barroway issued a statement regarding the verdict.

“The past several months have been extremely difficult for my loved ones and for me personally,” Barroway’s  statement said. “As you can imagine, seeing a private personal matter wrongly depicted in the media was hurtful and frustrating. So, too, was being unable to set the record straight because of the ongoing legal investigation. Now that this matter has concluded, I can directly say that the allegations against me were false.”
