Ex-AFL star admits assaulting former lover

Former AFL player Shannon Grant has pleaded guilty to assaulting his ex-partner on several occasions, including stomping on her bare foot after she got out of a bath at a Victorian resort.

The North Melbourne premiership player, 41, on Tuesday faced Moorabbin Magistrates Court where he admitted to assaulting the woman at his house in Melbourne, on a suburban beach and at a Yarra Valley resort.

"He is deeply ashamed of his actions. He regrets them," defence lawyer Nicole Spicer said after the guilty pleas were entered.
