The cricket commentator was recently axed from his job following a public on Scott Morrison over Twitter. 

In May he controversially accused Mr Morrison of having ‘blood on his hands’ for closing the border to Australians stuck in Covid-ravaged India.

The retired opening batsman told the PM in a series of tweets to get on his private jet and ‘come and witness dead bodies on the street’. 

‘Amazing to smoke out the PM on a matter that is a human crisis. The panic, the fear of every Australian in India is real!! How about you take your private jet and come and witness dead bodies on the street!’

Many have blamed Slater’s behaviour on social media for costing him his job with Channel 7, causing his 20 year cricket commentary career to come to a grinding halt. 

More to come. 

The 51-year-old was spoken to by police at a home in Manly, in Sydney's northern beaches, early on Wednesday morning and has been taken to the Manly Police Station. No charges have been laid
