Daniel Kerr charged with assault

Former West Coast Eagle Daniel Kerr has reportedly been arrested by police, amid allegations of an alleged assault in Osborne Park.

The 31-year-old is in police custody, but is unlikely to face court on Wednesday due to an annual magistrates conference.

WA Police confirmed that detectives had charged a 31-year-old Wembley man with two counts of the endangering the life, health or safety of a person after an incident in Glendalough about 11pm on Tuesday.

St John Ambulance said they were called to an incident in Glendalough about 1am but it was deemed that no ambulance was required.

Comment has been sought from lawyer John Prior, who has previously acted for Kerr.

Kerr made his debut with the Eagles in 2001, recruited from WAFL club East Fremantle, and was part of the 2006 premiership team before he retired from football at the end of the 2013 season.
