Fremantle midfielder and 2017 best and fairest winner Bradley Hill has been involved in an incident with police on Sunday night.
Hill was out drinking and was issued with a move on notice by police, although he is currently being investigated by the police for breaching that notice, and giving a false name.
Fremantle released a statement surrounding the news, with the club confirming Hill was currently under investigation.
“The club today confirmed that Bradley Hill was issued with a move on notice by police in Scarborough on Sunday night,” the Dockers’ statement began.
“Hill … was refused entry to a licensed premises about 10.30pm because he had tried to jump a barrier to enter the venue. He was spoken to by police a short time later.
“The club has been advised that Hill is being investigated by police for breaching a police move on notice issued at the time and giving police a false name.
“The club can also confirm that Hill breached the club’s alcohol policy for injured players and failed to advise the club of the matter in a timely fashion.”
Fremantle’s general manager of football operations Chris Bond told foxsports.com.au the club were frustrated with Hill’s actions, and confirmed he would be sanctioned once the investigation is completed.
“We are disappointed with Bradley’s actions on the night and his behaviour is at odds with a player who is in our leadership group,” Bond told Fox Sports.
“Bradley is currently on club approved leave and has been recalled to the club so we can further discuss his version of events.
“Once we have completed that process will be in a position to advise of what sanction he will face.”
