As per the New South Wales Police, the alleged incident happened last week. However, police haven’t disclosed further details. Meanwhile, police are investigating the matter and no charges has been laid on him so far. Slater has not commented publicly.

Slater was in headlines in May when he accused Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison of having ‘blood on his hands’ over his response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The outburst on the Australian PM resulted the government impose a two-week ban on Australian citizens returning from India during the height of that nation’s coronavirus crisis. Slater was commentating for local networks on the Indian Premier League at that time.

The father-of-three was part of the Australian cricket team from 1993 to 2001, playing 74 Tests and 42 ODIs scoring 5312 and 987 runs respectively.

Since then, Slate held prominent positions on TV but was let go last week by Australia’s Channel Seven, citing financial pressures.
