VETERAN Fremantle Docker defender Michael Johnson is helping police with enquiries into an incident in Leederville over the weekend.

Johnson is alleged to have been involved in an assault outside a kebab shop in the early hours of Sunday morning.

In a statement released by the club, chief executive Steve Rosich said they were treating the matter seriously.

“We are very disappointed that Michael placed himself in such a situation last weekend,” he said.

“As a club we support the person and challenge the behaviour.

“Thankfully, there was not anyone seriously injured.

“Given that the matter is still being investigated by police, the club is not in a position to comment further or discuss any possible sanction until the investigative and legal process is completed.”
