Australian Former Cricketer Michael Slater Arrested Again

Australian Former Cricketer Michael Slater Arrested Again:

The former Australia Test cricketer Michael Slater was charged on Wednesday for violating an order to restrain him just two months following his detention on claims that he was a victim of domestic abuse.


  • Michael Slater was charged with violating a restraining order.
  • This follows two months following an arrest on accusations of domestic violence.
  • The 51-year-old was granted bail.

A former Australia test cricketer Michael Slater was accused of violating the restraining order two months since his arrest on accusations of domestic violence.

 New South Wales state police confirmed that Slater was detained the second time on Wednesday, following reports that he violated the restraining orders, referred to informally as the Apprehended Violence Order, or AVO. 

The 51-year-old was later in the court of Sydney’s northern beaches. According to court documents, it was given bail with the condition that the mental health center “as soon as an appropriate bed becomes available,” according to court documents.

Slater is facing charges of contravening the restrictions set down in an AVO, using a carriage service “to menace/harass/offend,” and breaching bail, police said.

It’s akin to similar charges for carriage service that may be linked to harassment through email, phone, or social media or stalking that were laid out following reports of domestic violence assault on the 12th of October.

In his bail conditions, Slater was forbidden from drinking alcohol or using prescription drugs and using electronic devices such as mobile phones.

Opening batsman Slater was a player for Australia for more than ten years, scoring 5,312 Test runs before his retirement in 2004.

Slater’s case will come back to court on the 23rd of December.
