However, the altercation is said to have escalated quite quickly and “became a little too willing”.

The Age says it is unclear whether or not Hanley was under the influence of alcohol.

The club is reviewing CCTV footage of the incident to confirm the version of events they have been told and to determine whether or not any sanction should be given to Hanley.
