Patrick Dangerfield has reportedly broken up a scuffle while surfing at Fairhaven Beach in Victoria.
Dangerfield’s cousin reportedly had his surfboard smashed during a confrontation with another surfer.
The AFL star is said to have missed the initial incident, but came to break up the fracas afterwards.
“The victim, a 29-year-old from Aireys Inlet, sustained minor facial injuries during the incident.
“The investigation remains ongoing.”
Dangerfield returned home to play for Geelong in 2016 after eight years with the Adelaide Crows.
