A high-profile bar owner and his financial planner friend have been arrested after they allegedly snuck into WA from Victoria to watch the AFL Grand Final.
Hayden Burbank, 49, and Mark Babbage, 39, are accused of breaching strict Covid-19 border controls on Saturday to watch their beloved Melbourne Demons win the premiership on Saturday.
Burbank is a self-described millionaire who owns the exclusive cocktail bar and nightclub Morris Jones in the ritzy Melbourne suburb of Prahran.

Babbage lives in Hawthorn, works as a financial planner and mortgage broker and is related to a wealthy family from well-to-do Toorak.

In the photo, the Demons fanatic sported a blue and red guernsey in the changerooms with a beer in one hand and his other arm around premiership midfielder Alex Neal-Bullen.
Western Australian police called on the public for help to locate the men on Tuesday morning, and tracked them down in the South West hours later - after touring the region in a black Audi on Monday.
More to come.
