Michael Slater has reportedly been arrested following an alleged domestic violence incident just weeks after he was axed from Channel 7.
He was arrested at a Manly home on Wednesday morning although no charges have been laid, police say.
“Officers attached to the Eastern Suburbs Police Area Command commenced an investigation yesterday after receiving reports of a domestic violence incident alleged to have occurred on Tuesday 12 October 2021,’’ NSW Police said in a statement.

“Following inquiries, detectives attended a home at Manly about 9.20am and spoke with a 51-year-old man. He has since been arrested and taken to Manly Police Station.”
Slater was reportedly dumped by Channel 7 earlier this month after he criticised Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Twitter over banning overseas arrivals from India during the Indian Premier League.
Slater tweeted at the time: “If our Government cared for the safety of Aussies they would allow us to get home. It’s a disgrace!
“Blood on your hands PM. How dare you treat us like this. How about you sort out quarantine system.
“I had government permission to work on the IPL but I now have government neglect.
“And for those who think this is a money exercise. Well forget it. This is what I do for a living and I have not made a penny having left early. So please stop the abuse and think of the thousands dying in India each day. It’s called empathy. If only our government had some!”
