Former Australian cricket commentator Michael Slater reportedly collapsed in court on Tuesday after the court denied him bail over an alleged domestic violence row. The 54-year-old has been spending the past few days under the watchful eyes of Maroochydore police since his arrest, which occurred over the weekend, with Slater applying for bail.

The alleged violent acts were caught on CCTV cameras at the woman's premise, which comprise of verbal abuse or dishing out obscenities and barging his way into her house. According to Fox Cricket, the New South Wales lad collapsed in the court before Corrective Services Staff took him to back to his cell. The complainant has reportedly charged Slater for 19 domestic violence incidents, alleged to have taken place on December 5th, 2023 and April 12th, 2024.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Brendan Newman stated that they have an evidence in the form of a tape, where Slater had dished out expletive-laden abuse on the complainant before smashing a window. The 74-Test veteran went on to allegedly assault her in the home as well. Newman told the court, as quoted by Fox Cricket:

"She’s pleading with him to stop repeatedly, she’s in a state of undress, cowering, clearly scared for her safety. We say the strength of the evidence is good."
