Hawthorn premiership player Brad Hill has been embroiledΒ in a PoliceΒ investigation, afterΒ an alleged nightclub assault in Narre Warren, The Age has reported.

An altercation reportedly broke out in the early hours of January 24 at Empire nightclub, which left a 21-year-old man with facial injuries.

A 22-year-old woman along with Hill were interviewed by detectives from the Casey crime investigation unit and the investigation is still ongoing.

The Age has reported that Hill told club officials he was justΒ an onlooker during the incident, with the club believed to have accepted his version of events.

“Hawthorn Football Club is aware that one of its players is assisting police in an investigation into a report of alleged altercation on January 24th, ” the Hawks said in a statement.

“As the matter is under investigation the club will not be making further comment at this time.”


  1. I’ve been out and seen hilly and never have i seen him draw attention to himself i think it’s more sum1 try to make a name for themselves and he just defend himself well u would hope anyway being a afl player they get taught how to deal with things like that

    • We sure are m8 – ohhhhhhh we’re a happy team at hawthorn πŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ🏾πŸ’ͺ

  2. hey look i hate the hawks but being investigated dont make him guilty it dont make him innocent either but several years ago a rugby league player benji marshall was in the headlines for an assult at a fast food outlet it was reported he assulted a rival fan but the truth was he recieved a barrage of abuse and in the end had to phyisically defend himself .let the police investigat the issue and hope they do a better job on this than the MRP did on hodges knee to bartels head.

  3. So he was present when a fight broke out. Slow news day .. and the hawks players were both clearer in the rape investigation. No charges laid. So over this headline grabbing crap ..

  4. i had some….many drinks with some of the Hawthorn players after a grand final a few years back and i thought they were absolute gentlemen…from what i remember,..

  5. How about getting all the facts this time befire you hang another player out to dry. The media completely stuffed up the Dustin Martin episode. This is simply trial by media.
