In a recent development, Australian veteran Michael Slater has been rushed to the hospital for a mental health assessment just a few hours after he was arrested for allegedly breaching bail.
The 52-year-old former Australian batsman turned cricket commentator was arrested after a woman made multiple calls about an alleged disturbance last Thursday night, from a Freshwater home on Sydney’s northern beaches.
Michael Slater is currently prohibited from drinking or taking illicit drugs
Slater, however, had been granted bail after facing the charges, which include assault, stalking and intimidation and now breaching bail. Michael Slater has also been prohibited from assaulting, threatening, stalking, harassing or intimidating the 53-year-old woman.
According to court documents, Slatter is banned from drinking alcohol or taking drugs not prescribed by a doctor and cannot approach or be in her company for at least 12 hours after drinking or taking illicit drugs or even be within 100m of the woman’s home or workplace.
