Australian cricket great Michael Slater has been hit with new assault charges.
The former star allegedly assaulted a man at Frenchs Forest on Sydney’s northern beaches on July 18.
He is facing two new counts of common assault and one count of attempt to stalk or intimidate intend fear of physical or mental harm.
Slater played 74 Tests and 42 one-day internationals for Australia between 1993 and 2001 before moving into television commentary.
He was axed from Channel 7’s cricket coverage last October after he slammed Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Twitter while he was in the Maldives when the Indian Premier League was suspended due to the pandemic.
