PORT Adelaide ruckman Patrick Ryder has been arrested and charged with assaulting police after a fracas outside an Adelaide nightclub following the Grand Final.

The club has confirmed the incident also involved Ryder’s younger brother and cousin in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Following the incident, Ryder was charged with assaulting police and hindering police.

The officers sustained only minor injuries.

Ryder, 29, has been released on bail and will appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on November 15.

POWER SEASON: HURTING CORNES MORE CERTAIN IN DEFEAT

COMING GOOD: THIRD TIME LUCKY FOR POWER’S HOMBSCH

The club said in a statement on Sunday evening: “Ryder met with club officials this morning to express his disappointment and regret for involving himself in an incident which primarily concerned his brother.”

“Given this is a police matter, Ryder and the club will not be making any further comment until after the court hearing,” the club said.

In addition to Ryder, SA Police confirmed a 22-year-old man from Western Australia was arrested and charged with resisting police, and a 23-year-old man from Western Australia was arrested and charged with assaulting police.

Ryder earned AFL accolades as the competition’s best ruckman this season after spending a year out of football to serve a WADA-imposed ban from the Essendon supplements saga in 2012.

The West Australian moved to Port Adelaide in 2015 after playing 170 AFL games with Essendon from 2006. He has played 40 AFL games in his three years at Alberton.

MORE TO COME

Need to tweet at Koch!


#127

Closer to family eh?


#128

Some talk that he king hit a police officer that was restraining his brother.
Port claim to have the best indigenous program in the comp but that’s now 4 incidents in the last 12 months


#129

Ok so how’s the afl media going to blame us for this.


#130

Hinkley and Koch MUST stand down!


#131

The AFL will get involved and sweep it away next to Dustin Martin’s chopsticks


#132

Why wasn’t he home with his family; the family whose needs are primary?


#133

He assaulted a cop? He is gone. Laters Ryder


#134

“Hird should’ve been monitoring him instead of selfishly and narcissisticly handing out the Norm Smith Medal”


#135

It is interesting that Port are not doing anything about it until the court case.


#136

ROID RAGE


#137

See ya later Angus.


#138

Good career, Gus, but I suspect he just beat the tap on the shoulder.

Probably go back to Sturt instead of playing in the prison bars.


#139

Good player. Would have been better in the midfield but didn’t have the tank

All the best


#140

What are they supposed to do, lock 'em up when not playing or training?
What about the non-indigenous?
