Collingwood player Jordan De Goey arrested in New York City


Collingwood Football Club forward Jordan De Goey has been charged with assault offences in the United States.

The New York City Police Department told the ABC Mr De Goey and 28-year-old Australian man Luke Dyson were charged with assault and forcible touching.

It relates to an alleged incident that happened at the PHD Rooftop Lounge at the Dream Hotel in the Chelsea district in the early hours of Saturday morning (local time).

The Collingwood Football Club said it was “aware of a report involving Jordan De Goey”.

Police said they responded to an emergency services call from a 35-year-old woman who claimed she was groped by two men on the dance floor.

When the woman’s 37-year-old male friend tried to intervene, he was punched, kicked and struck in the face with a glass bottle, police alleged.

Mr De Goey and Mr Dyson were arrested at the scene and are currently in custody waiting to see a judge.

Police said all parties involved in the incident were intoxicated and were not previously known to each other.

The NYPD said the 37-year-old man suffered pain and swelling to his lips and body, and the 35-year-old woman was not injured but was described as distressed.

Both refused medical attention.

A Collingwood spokesperson said the club had yet to speak to Mr De Goey.

“The club is attempting to contact Jordan, who is in the USA, to determine the facts of the matter,” a spokesperson said in a statement.

“The club will not be in a position to comment further until it has done so.”
