FORMER AFL star and football media identity with 3AW and Foxtel Wayne Carey was reportedly subdued with capsicum spray and arrested during a domestic dispute at his home in Port Melbourne.

Police would not confirm the identity of the arrested man, saying only that a former footballer, aged in his 30s, was arrested at the address in Rouse Street at about 8pm (AEDT) last night.

“There was a man from that address that wanted a woman to leave,” Victoria Police Senior Constable Wayne Wilson said.

“Police arrived and then at the front door the fellow from the address allegedly assaulted police officers.

“They struggled with him, sprayed him. He was arrested and taken to the St Kilda police station where he was spoken to and interviewed, and a brief of evidence will be prepared in relation to assault police.”
