Police Investigate Logan Swann
The Vodafone Warriors announced today the club is assisting police investigating an assault complaint against a Warriors? player. Club management joined police in a meeting with second row forward Logan Swann and his lawyer on Wednesday. Police have since indicated Swann is likely to be summonsed to appear in court next week on a charge of assault. The police inquiry relates to a late night incident in central Auckland four weeks ago. Warriors? chief executive officer Mick Watson says Police called Wednesday?s meeting to detail new information about a complaint from a man who says he was assaulted outside a Queen Street bar. Police have indicated two other men were involved in the alleged assault. They say no other member of the Warriors? squad was present during the incident. Mr Watson says the club maintains strict guidelines on player behaviour. ?We treat every incident seriously and have offered police our full co-operation.? ?We launched our own investigation four weeks ago, but late last week police were able to bring forward information that had not been available to us previously. ?We are keen to see this matter resolved but this is very much an issue for the courts. The rights of all parties must be respected. ?We are determined to help in any way we can but are unable to make any further comment until the matter is resolved in the courts.?
