The alleged victim provided Police with a video of a man he says is Johnson, who has his pants down in a kebab shop in Leederville, before the man was struck by Johnson in the resulting argument.

Fremantle released a statement on Monday, stating they are aware of the investigation, however, would not comment further on the matter at this stage.

“We have been made aware that Fremantle player Michael Johnson, who is on leave, was allegedly involved in an incident in Leederville at the weekend,” the club said.

“We are in the process of gathering all relevant information.

“We are not in a position to comment further until that process has been completed.”

Johnson managed only four games in 2016 due to a hamstring injury.
