Sydney: Troubled Parramatta Eels star Semi Radradra, linked last month with a code switch to French union side Bordeaux, has been charged with domestic violence offences.
The Fiji-born National Rugby League player was arrested at Sydney airport late on Thursday following his arrival from his homeland over allegations that relate to a past relationship.
"As a result of investigations the man was charged with assault causing actual bodily harm domestic violence and two counts of common assault domestic violence," police said in a statement.
It follows Radradra’s former partner, Perina Ting, filing a video report with police last month alleging she was assaulted on multiple occasions over an eight-month period, beginning in September 2014.
The Eels said it was a "serious matter and the club is treating it as such". The 24-year-old, considered one of the games best wingers, was bailed to appear in court on July 5.
