The John Lindell Ice Arena in Royal Oak, Michigan, gets new management with the Suburban Sports Group. Suburban replaces former ice arena manager Ron Holbrook who was caught masturbating publicly in his arena office in April. Holbrook, 52, was discovered by an 18 year old employee, while he was watching the womens’ figure skating and masturbating with his office door open. Holbrook was placed on ‘unpaid administrative leave’ and awaits trial on October 26 for aggravated indecent exposure. Holbrook was making $159,000 in salary and benefits as manager of the Lindell Ice Arena. Suburban Sports Group will save the ice arena nearly $100,000 in fees in the first year with a $66,000 tab.
