Former North Melbourne premiership player Shannon Grant is facing assault and criminal damage charges.
The 40-year-old has been accused of 18 offences relating to an alleged incident in the Melbourne suburb of Highett in December last year.
The 1999 Norm Smith Medallist yesterday resigned as coach of amateur team St Kevin’s citing personal reasons.
He has been bailed to appear at Moorabbin Magistrates’ Court on February 21.
Grant played 301 games for North Melbourne and the Sydney Swans before retiring in 2008.
