- Police were called to an address in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley following complaints

- He was arrested and charged with three counts of assault and willful harm
- Milford, 27, moves from Brisbane Broncos to Sydney Souths for next season
Brisbane Broncos NRL star Anthony Milford has been arrested after an alleged domestic violence attack in Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley overnight on Monday.
Milford, 27, was arrested at 2 a.m. and charged with three counts of assault with bodily harm and one count of willful damage.
Police were called to an address on Marshall Street, believed to be the home of Milford’s girlfriend, after reports of a disturbance.
They later found Milford on a nearby street and arrested him.
“He was charged with three counts of assault with bodily harm and one of willful damage,” a Queensland Police Department spokesman said.
“He was given police bail to appear before the Brisbane Magistrates Court on October 20.”
Milford, who lives in Brisbane’s Forest Lakes, will move to Sydney Souths next season after the Broncos chose not to renew his $1 million contract.
His former club distanced itself from the player after his arrest on Monday.
“Anthony Milford has fulfilled his contractual obligations with the Brisbane Bronco,” a statement from the Broncos said.
He is on leave and will start a new NRL contract elsewhere at the start of the 2022 preseason.
“As the case is now in court, the Broncos will not comment further.”
