Brisbane Broncos NRL star Anthony Milford has been arrested after an alleged domestic violence assault in Fortitude Valley, Brisbane overnight on Monday.
Milford, 27, was arrested at 2am and charged with three counts of assault occasioning bodily harm and one count of wilful damage.
Police were called to an address in Marshall Street, believed to be the home of Milford's girlfriend, following reports of a disturbance.
They then launched a manhunt in surrounding streets and later found Milford nearby and arrested him.
'He was charged with three counts of assault occasioning bodily harm, and one count of wilful damage,' said a Queensland Police spokesman.
'He was given police bail to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on October 20.'
Milford, who lives in Brisbane's Forest Lakes, is set to move to Sydney Souths next season after the Broncos chose not renew his $1million deal.
His former club distanced themselves from the player in the wake of his arrest on Monday.
'Anthony Milford has completed his contractual duties with the Brisbane Bronco,' said a Broncos statement.
'He is on leave and due to begin a new NRL contract elsewhere at the commencement of the 2022 pre-season.
'As the matter is now before the courts, the Broncos will make no further comment.'
