DEPARTING Brisbane Broncos star Anthony Milford has been arrested in Fortitude Valley overnight.

He is due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court next month.

The Brisbane Broncos were quick to release a statement on Monday morning regarding the incident.

“Anthony Milford has completed his contractual duties with the Brisbane Broncos,” the statement read.

“He is on leave and due to begin a new NRL contract elsewhere at the commencement of the 2022 pre-season.

“As the matter is now before the courts, the Broncos will make no further comment.”

The NRL Integrity Unit will also investigate.

The drama comes just days after it was revealed Broncos prop Tom Flegler and teammate Jordan Riki got into a bust-up at the club’s post-season celebrations last week.
