AFL premiership player Liam Ryan has had another run-in with the law, this time over an alleged family violence incident following a local football match in Western .
Police were called to an incident in Kalbarri just before 4.30am on Sunday, following a football match between Kalbarri and Shark Bay, and spoke to a 20-year-old woman.
Officers later issued the West Coast forward with a 72-hour police order to stay away from her, although no complaint was made.
A police order gives a person temporary protection against the risk of domestic violence while they decide whether they want to apply for a family violence restraining order in court.
In a statement, West Coast said Ryan obeyed a move on notice issued by police and the club would work with the 22-year-old to establish the details.
“The club will at all times keep the AFL fully informed of all relevant details,” the statement read.
“The club remains cognisant of Liam’s health and wellbeing, and will work closely with him to ensure those considerations are prioritised.
“Once the club has established the facts around the allegations it will release further information.”
Many Eagles players are on leave following their premiership win.
Last week, Ryan was banned from driving for 18 months and fined $1700, plus court costs of $205, after he was caught drink-driving on July 2.
Ryan crashed his car into a tree in Armadale and was caught at a nearby park, with a blood alcohol sample revealing he had a reading of 0.138g.
The Eagles suspended Ryan for two AFL games at the time of that incident.
Ryan told AAP last month he had since turned his life around, saying the crash had straightened him up.
