Former Australia batter Michael Slater arrested

He was arrested in Sydney on Wednesday over domestic violence allegations

Australian cricket great Michael Slater was arrested and charged in Sydney on Wednesday over domestic violence allegations. 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 visited a 51-year-old man at his home on Wednesday morning and taken him into custody. He was charged with using a "carriage service to menace/harass/offend and stalk/intimidate intend fear physical harm", police said.

The charges -- which can relate to harassment via phone or social media and stalking -- came after reports of a domestic violence incident on October 12.

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.

He has been granted conditional bail and is due to appear in court next month.
