Magpies star Jordan De Goey arrested in New York

Collingwood star Jordan De Goey has been arrested in New York for allegedly groping a woman.

The New York Daily News has reported De Goey spent Saturday night in a Manhattan holding cell for groping a woman and attacking the woman’s friend at a nightclub atop a Chelsea hotel, police sources told the paper.

The paper alleges he was partying at the PHD Rooftop Lounge at the Dream Hotel on West 16th street about 2.30am when he and his friend Liam Dyson approached a woman on the dance floor.

While the two men were dancing, they allegedly groped the woman, angering a 37-year-old man with her, The New York Daily News reported the police said. When he attempted to push the two Australians away, Dyson, 28, allegedly struck the man in the face with a glass bottle, splitting his lip, police said.

De Goey and Dyson then allegedly attacked the man, before heading back to the bar.

Collingwood released a statement saying they were aware of a report and “attempting to contact Jordan, who is in the USA, to determine the facts of the matter”.

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

De Goey, who has frustrated Magpies officials through the years by not keeping in shape during the off-season, has spent time during his official leave period training hard at The W Training Facility in southern California under his Monster Energy partnership.

The match-winning forward-midfielder is off contract next season and is expected to be one of the hottest free agents on the market, hoping to land a contract of more than $800,000 a season.

In August, De Goey had an indecent assault charge withdrawn and Victoria Police has been ordered to pay his legal costs.

The charge related to an allegation of indecent assault of a woman in Kew on June 21, 2015. Co-accused Jake Edginton also had the same charge withdrawn.
