Fremantle star Harley Bennell is being investigated WA Police after claims the star was involved in a physical altercation with a member of a bike gang while leaving a pre-season match.

Harley Bennell reportedly involved in an incident with a bikie.
According to The Age, Bennell left the bathroom at the ground in Mandurah after a preseason match against West Coast and was confronted by several men, with one of those individuals being a member of the Coffin Cheaters motorcycle gang.

The report says a security guard offered to walk Bennell to his car and the incident is now part of a larger investigation by the Western Australia Organised Crime Squad.

The report states Bennell did nothing wrong during the altercation.

Fremantle has released a statement regarding the incident and confirmed Bennell is not believed to have done anything wrong and they were “unaware of any investigation".

The news surrounding the injured Bennell has hit the club at a tough time with the Dockers forced to defend key forward Jesse Hogan.


Head coach Ross Lyon has come out in support of Hogan, who suffers from "clinical anxiety", after it was revealed he was unfit to train after drinking with friends on the weekend.

I’m all for sinking the boots into Freo while they’re down, they are the gift that keeps on giving after all, but this is such a non-event which apparently didn’t even involve Bennell, rather his mate, that this isn’t even worthy of discussion.

And how the hell can the opening line state he’s ‘under investigation’ then go on to say the report statwd he did nothing wrong?

Just sums up the state of the AFL media in this country.

Depends if Harley has a prior connection with these people or if he was just targeted because of who he is by people looking to get a reaction/story out of a well known figure.

As it stands it’s a non-story. Hopefully it remains that way.

Was the report in The West or one of the Melbourne papers?

Never owe bikes or bike associates money.

They dont send a letter of demand to collect late payments.

Unfortunately Harley Bennell is going to go into footy history as one of the biggest wastes of talent the game has seen
The term 'waste of talent' disproportionately applies to players from WA, it's crazy. Some of the greatest wastes of talent in AFL history.

Des Headland

Could potentially add Hogan to this list shortly, and we're pretty close to adding McCarthy.

Tom Swift? yeah I think you are on your own with that one, he had a crack, wasn't good enough so changed careers.
