TV host Andrew O’Keefe arrested and charged with common assault

A popular TV host has been arrested and charged over an alleged domestic violence incident in Sydney.

49-year-old Andrew O’Keefe was arrested in Randwick in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police allege Mr O’Keefe assaulted his partner at an apartment, before he was found on a nearby street.


The Chanel 7 host was then taken to Maroubra police station, where he was charged with common assault.

He’s been granted conditional bail until he fronts Waverley Court this Thursday.

“Just before 1am, officers from Eastern Beaches Police Area Command attended a Randwick unit, after reports a 41-year-old woman had allegedly been assaulted in a domestic violence related incident.”

“Following inquiries, police arrested a 49-year-old man nearby about 3.30am.

“He was taken to Maroubra police station where he was charged with common assault (DV) and granted conditional bail to appear at Waverley Local Court on Thursday, 4 February 2021,” a statement from NSW police reads.

“Chanel 7”? I thought it was No. 5?

Seems all you need to do when you hit a woman is say “wasn’t me” and then claim mental illness made me do it when the truth comes out.
