Collingwood midfielder Steele Sidebottom was reportedly driven home by police, following his alleged breach of AFL COVID-19 protocols.
Channel 7 is reporting that Sidebottom was in Williamstown on Sunday morning and taken home by police, though he was not charged with any offence.
Sidebottom and teammate Lynden Dunn are currently being investigated by the AFL for a breach of protocols, with the report suggesting the All-Australian midfielder was not in a condition to drive home.
7 News received a statement from Victoria Police on the matter.
“Police officers located a 29-year-old man in Hanmer Street, Williamstown on Sunday morning 28 June just before 7.30am,” Victoria Police told 7 News.
“He was not charged with any offence and after speaking to police was conveyed home.”
Sidebottom and Dunn were reportedly visiting former teammate Daniel Wells, following a trip to see Jeremy Howe. The duo also used an Uber.
Neither player will be permitted at Collingwood training until they are cleared by COVID-19 testers.
