GWS Toby Greene’s father charged after allegedly head-butting female police officer

In the aftermath of yesterday’s grand final, a man – believed to be the father of GWS’ Toby Greene – has been charged after allegedly head butting a police officer.

The 59-year-old was arrested at the MCG during the Tigers v Giants grand final, and was in the process of being escorted out before allegedly head-butting a female police officer.

The Herald Sun is this morning reporting that the man arrested is Michael Greene – the father of Toby Greene, who was on field at the time.


It’s understood the father and son are estranged.

The man has been charged with intentionally causing serious injury, resisting police and assaulting police.

He is set to face court in Melbourne today.

Greater Western Sydney refused to comment about the matter to the Herald Sun.

Toby Greene went into the grand final as the villain, after serving a week’s suspension over an eye contact instance.

There were a number of other incidents in the grand final aftermath, including a 21-year-old man allegedly biting a police officer, and a 27-year-old man hitting a police officer on the back of the head.

Both have been charged with assaulting police and were released on bail.
