Star Western Bulldogs midfielder Lachie Hunter is set to give up the vice-captaincy just four months after stepping into the role, according to Seven News.

The 25-year old allegedly crashed into four parked cars last Thursday night and later returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.123 at teammate Billy Gowers' house after Bailey Smith drove him there

The Bulldogs are currently finalising their investigation into the Middle Park incident and could confirm Hunter's sanctions as early as Monday.

Hunter faces a repair bill of $150,000 according to SEN and was fined $1652 for breaching coronavirus restriction laws.

An apologetic Hunter has reportedly decided to hand in the vice-captaincy and is likely to make a statement as part of the Bulldogs' announcement.

Hunter was promoted from the leadership group to deputy of new skipper Marcus Bontempelli in December.

Sources told Seven News he will receive a club suspension two to three weeks plus a fine as well as a maximum fine of $5000 from the AFL.
