Ex-Aussie cricketer Michael Slater collapses in court after denial of bail in domestic violence case

New Delhi, April 16 (IANS): Former Australia batter Michael Slater reportedly collapsed in the court after his bail application was rejected by the magistrate on domestic violence charges, according to reports.

The 54-year-old faces 19 charges, which include stalking, intimidation, assault occasioning bodily harm and choking or strangulation, relating to alleged offences between December 5, 2023, and April 12, 2024.
