Former Brisbane Lions player charged with domestic violence

Former Brisbane Lions player Albert Proud has been remanded in custody after allegedly assaulting his partner over the weekend.

Police allege Proud assaulted the 35-year-old at a Sunnybank home early on Sunday morning, with a passerby finding her in the street with severe face and head injuries.

She was taken to hospital in a serious but stable condition.


Proud, who played 29 games for the AFL club from 2007-10, has been charged with attempted murder, acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm and wilful damage.

The 27-year-old’s case was briefly heard in Richland Magistrates Court on Monday morning, and he will appear in Holland Park Magist

It’s not Proud’s first run in with the law.

Proud was sacked by the Lions in 2011 after he was convicted of assaulting a police officer.

He was fined $250 and a conviction was recorded after the incident.

That was his seventh time before a court since 2005.
