Can a fan really press charges for being sprayed with a water bottle?

May 21, 2014; Chicago, IL, USA; Chicago Blackhawks goalie Corey Crawford (50) defends his net against the Los Angeles Kings during game two of the Western Conference Final of the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs at United Center. Mandatory Credit: Jerry Lai-USA TODAY SportsThe NHL is being plagued by a series of water bottle sprayings. Between Shawn Thornton being fined for spraying PK Subban, Henrik Lundqvist spraying Sidney Crosby and now this latest incident, there's clearly an epidemic.

Corey Crawford apparently sprayed a fan during Game 4 of the Western Conference finals, and now the fan is pressing charges, according to TMZ.

Via TMZ:
TMZ Sports spoke with Wong who says he was sitting behind the Blackhawks bench -- and was heckling Crawford -- when the goalie was pulled from the game toward the end of the 3rd period.  That's when Crawford -- who's in the middle of a 6-year, $36 MILLION contract -- allegedly whipped out a water bottle and blasted him right in the face.

Wong says he believes the bottle was filled with backwash -- along with water -- and it has caused serious irritation to his eyes. Wong says he's going to a doctor to get his eyes checked.

League sources tell TMZ Sports ... Wong was ejected from the game 3 to 5 minutes after the spraying incident for "taunting the players" and it was while he was being escorted out of the arena that he began to rub his eyes, complaining about the pain.
 

This is clearly one of the more frivolous lawsuits we've seen since... well, the Johnny Manziel harassment lawsuit. Something tells me that absolutely nothing will come of this.
