Wests star charged with assault

Wests Tigers star Michael Chee-Kam faces two charges of assault after an incident in Bondi which is alleged to have happened on Sunday, December 30.

Chee-Kam allegedly punched a ride-share driver through the open window of his car.

“Wests Tigers have been made aware of an incident involving a player on December 30, 2018,” a Wests Tigers statement said.

“The club is working with the NRL Integrity Unit on the matter and will be making no further comment at this stage.”

Chee-Kam becomes the latest NRL player to be waiting for a court appearance with Jarryd Hayne, Jack de Belin, Zane Musgrove and Dylan Walker all set a date at court.

Meanwhile, Greg Inglis is due to be sentenced later this month on a drink-driving charge dating back to October.

Chee-Kam and another man, aged 18, who is not a Wests Tigers player are due in court on February 5.
