Former Australian batsman and television pundit Michael Slater was arrested and charged Wednesday over domestic violence allegations.
The 51-year-old, now a well-known television pundit, was arrested in connection with an alleged incident that occurred last week.
New South Wales police confirmed they had visited a 51-year-old man at his home on Wednesday morning and taken him into custody.
He was charged with using a “carriage service to menace/harass/offend and stalk/intimidate intend fear physical harm”, police said.
The charges — which can relate to harassment via phone or social media and stalking — came after reports of a domestic violence incident on October 12.
Slater occupied a position at the top of the Australian Test batting order for close to a decade, hitting 5,312 runs before his 2004 retirement.
He has been granted conditional bail and is due to appear in court next month.
