Cricket great Michael Slater has been arrested after an alleged domestic violence incident.
The 51-year-old was taken into custody at his Manly home on Sydney’s northern beaches on Wednesday morning.
Police say they have been investigating an allegation of domestic violence from a week ago.
“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 taken to Manly Police station.
He has not yet been charged.
Slater played 74 Tests and 42 ODIs for Australia between 1993 and 2001.
More to come.
