Cricket Legend Micheal Slater appeared in court once more, after police were called to his home out of concern for his welfare. On July 14, police flocked to the 52-year-Manly old’s residence on Sydney’s northern beaches. They summoned an ambulance to take Slater to Northern Beaches Hospital.
He remained in the hospital up until Monday when he was arrested for violating his bail. Later was taken to the Manly police station. Slater appeared before the Manly district court on Monday in the afternoon. Magistrate Megan Greenwood issued him a strict conditional bail order. The bail stipulates that he must abstain from alcohol and narcotics and maintain good behaviour.
Slater is also forbidden from getting in touch with a number of complainants who have violence orders pending against him. He has entered a not guilty plea to the accusations made against him in May. According to which he assaulted and stalked/intimidated his ex-partner.
Charges related to a different 2021 event were brought up earlier this year. But they were later withdrawn due to mental health issues. Due to his mental health, he was absolved of domestic violence charges in a Sydney provincial court in April. Slater was sentenced to a 12-month treatment regimen under the doctor’s supervision by Magistrate Ross Hudson.
Top-order batsman Michael Slater was known for acting irrationally on the pitch. Slater was a gifted batter who kept his spot in the Australian national team for more than 10 years. Later his career took a downturn due to personal troubles. He began his career in 1993 and played 74 tests for Australia between 1993 and 2001.
His limited-overs career went well despite not quite reaching the same heights as his Test career. His final ODI played in 1997 against England, marked the abrupt end of his stint with the one-day team.
Slater switched to commentary once his time as a batter came to an end and his hunger for runs diminished. In the summer of 2003–2004, he was ill, and the following year, he finally made his retirement announcement.
