Former Australian cricketer Michael Slater will appear in court today after he allegedly breached an apprehended violence order.
Police arrested the 51-year-old at around 7.45 a.m. (Australian time) today in West Promenade, Manly, following their investigation into a reported violation of the order.
Slater was taken to Manly Police Station where he was charged with violating the AVO ban / restriction, using a transport service to threaten / harass / offend and breaching the bond .
He was denied bail and is now awaiting a referral in local court in Manly.
Slater first faced court in October with police alleging he used his cell phone to threaten, harass or offend his ex-partner between March and October this year.
He allegedly harassed or intimidated the woman in Randwick in the eastern suburbs of Sydney between noon on October 12 and noon on October 13.
An AVO was also released by police against Slater on behalf of his former partner.
Slater played 74 Tests and 42 One Day Internationals for Australia between 1993 and 2001 before moving on to commentary.
He was recently banned from Channel 7 cricket coverage following a series of tweets criticizing Prime Minister Scott Morrison while he remained in the Maldives when the Indian Premier League was suspended in May.
