Michael Slater was charged on Wednesday with breaching a restraining order, two months after his arrest over allegations of domestic violence.
New South Wales state police said the former Australia batter was arrested for a second time on Wednesday morning after reports he allegedly breached the restraining order, known as an apprehended violence order (AVO).
He was taken to a Sydney police station, where he was refused bail and was due to appear in court later the same day.
The 51-year-old has been charged with contravening the restrictions set down in an AVO, using a carriage service “to menace/harass/offend” and breaching bail, police said.
It follows similar carriage service charges – which can relate to harassment via phone or social media and stalking – first laid after reports of a domestic violence incident on 12 October.
Slater played for Australia for close to a decade, amassing 5,312 Test runs before his 2004 retirement.
