SYDNEY: Australian cricketer Michael Slater was arrested in Sydney over domestic violence allegations.


Local media reported the 51-year-old, now a well-known television pundit, was arrested in connection with an alleged incident that occurred last week.


New South Wales police confirmed they had taken a 51-year-old man into custody in Sydney's northern beaches.


"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," police said in a statement.


"Following inquiries, detectives attended a home at Manly about 9:20 am today, and spoke with a 51-year-old man.


"He has since been arrested and taken to Manly Police Station."


Slater occupied a position at the top of the Australian Test batting order for close to a decade, hitting 5,312 runs before his 2004 retirement.
