AFL orders Collingwood’s Jordan De Goey to make charity donation following drunken New York incident

The AFL says Collingwood’s Jordan De Goey will donate $10,000 to charity following a highly-publicized altercation in a New York bar last year.

Collingwood had stood down De Goey in October after he emerged the 25-year-old had been arrested for his involvement in a drunken incident while in the United States.

De Goey eventually pleaded guilty to the downgraded charge of harassment, which saw him avoid a jail sentence and freed him up to rejoin the Magpies.

The AFL announced on Friday evening it had completed its investigation into De Goey’s conduct overseas.

De Goey was found to have breached AFL rules “by engaging in conduct unbecoming”.
