England Rugby League legend Sam Burgess has been charged with intimidation by NSW Police, just hours after announcing his retirement from the game.
The 30-year-old is alleged to have been involved in an incident with the father of his wife, who he recently split up with.
NRL.com report how a NSW Police statement said: “About 4pm on Saturday 19 October 2019, police were called to an address at Glenquarry, in relation to a domestic dispute.
“Police from The Hume Police District attended and an Apprehended Domestic Violence Order was applied for on behalf of a 63-year-old man. Following further inquiries, on Wednesday 30 October 2019, a 30-year-old man was charged with the offence of Intimidation (DV related).
“It’s alleged the man intimidated the older man during the incident.”
Burgess is now due to appear at a Local Court hearing on December 18.
