Collingwood star Steele Sidebottom was reportedly driven home by Victoria Police after his alleged COVID-19 breach, according to Seven News.
Sidebottom and teammate Lynden Dunn are currently under AFL investigation for a breach of protocols on Saturday night, with the pair reportedly drinking at injured teammate Jeremy Howe’s house.
It is believed that Sidebottom and Dunn then caught an Uber to Dunn’s house, while Sidebottom kicked on at former Magpie and part-time employee Daniel Wells’ house.
Seven News reports that Sidebottom was found on a street in Williamstown on Sunday morning and was driven home, not charged with any offence.
“Police officers located a 29-year-old man in Hanmer Street, Williamstown on Sunday morning 28 June just before 7.30am,” Victoria Police told Seven News.
“He was not charged with any offence and after speaking to police was conveyed home.”
Sidebottom and Dunn and not permitted back at the club until they have passed COVID tests.
The league is reportedly finalising its investigation into the matter and will announce findings soon, with suspensions looming.
