Former Australian Test cricketer Michael Slater has been indicted on charges of stalking and harassment over an alleged domestic violence incident.
The 51-year-old Cricketer was arrested on Wednesday from his home in Manly on Sydney’s northern beaches.
The former Australian international was summoned to Manly police station and was later found guilty of using a carriage service to menace, harass, or offend and with stalking.
The court accepted Slater’s plea of conditional bail and ordered him to summon again at Waverley Local Court on 11 November.
In a statement, police said that officers attached to the Eastern Suburbs Police Area Command opened an investigation on Tuesday after receiving reports of a domestic violence incident that allegedly occurred on 12 October.
The opening batsman made his debut in the 1993 Ashes tour of England. He played in 74 Tests for Australia scoring 5312 runs at an average of 42.83 after making his debut during the 1993 Ashes tour of England.
He also played 42 one-day internationals scoring just under 1,000 runs before retiring from major cricket in 2004.
Slater was recently dropped from Channel Seven’s commentary team for the upcoming summer cricket season, as the network cited budget issues.
He had previously worked as a commentator and personality for more than a decade on the rival Nine Network.
