Fevola 'harassed reporter at Brownlow'

Media reports have claimed Brendan Fevola sexually harassed a female journalist during his wild night at the Brownlow Medal count.

Melbourne 3AW radio presenter Neil Mitchell today detailed Fevola's alleged actions at the September 21 event, which saw the Carlton star axed from The Footy Show's grand final edition and also fall out of favour with his club.

Despite claiming the Coleman Medal for kicking the most goals this AFL season, the full forward was today traded to the Brisbane Lions. (READ MORE: Brisbane completes Fevola trade)

"Brendan Fevola has been accused of at the very least sexually harassing and arguably assaulting and intimidating a female Herald Sun journalist," Mitchell said today.

"I have been told by several sources that he followed her into the toilets at Crown [and] physically intimidated her.

"One of the reports says … [he was] simulating sex acts upon her and sort of grabbing at her.

"It was certainly of a sexual nature."

The explosive report claims that while both the Carlton Football Club and the AFL are aware of the allegations, the journalist in question has not filed an official complaint to the police or the league.

The Herald Sun also omitted the details from their extensive coverage of Fevola's wild night at the request of the woman, reports claim.

A popular online blog originally posted details of Fevola's alleged indiscretion today.

VEXNEWS claimed the incident occurred in or near the female toilets near the Palladium Room at Crown Casino, the venue for the presentation of the AFL's highest individual award.

Fevola, 28, is currently holidaying in Queensland with his pregnant wife Alex and two children.

He is due to give a press conference with his new club at the Gold Coast's Wet'n'Wild Water World theme park this afternoon.
