DANTON is a hockey player for the St Louis Blues. DANTON begged the acquaintance not to go to the general manager of the blues hockey organisation and ruin his career. The acquaintance threatened to leave DANTON.
The acquaintance called DANTON and asked DANTON why he wanted to have him killed. DANTON broke down and sobbed.
