Richmond defender Liam Baker has been cleared misconduct after being involved in a nightclub fracas last month that saw the 23-year-old capsicum-sprayed, per The Herald Sun.

Baker attended the Osborne Rooftop and Bar in South Yarra, where he was sprayed by a female patron in the early hours of January 31.

Following a review of the CCTV footage, the club revealed Baker had been cleared of any wrongdoing in the altercation.

The incident was another off-field story that has added to the club’s rollercoaster off-season as the Tigers look to claim their third-straight premiership this season.

Baker, a two-time premiership player, has been a valuable asset to Damien Hardwick’s back-third since making his debut in 2018, playing 42 games for the club.
