Former TV host Andrew O’Keefe arrested over allegations he choked woman
Disgraced former television host Andrew O’Keefe will face court on Thursday after he allegedly attempted to choke a potential business partner.
Police say the one-time White Ribbon ambassador met the woman at his home on Kent Street in the Sydney CBD on Tuesday afternoon.
“A verbal argument ensued between the pair, before the man allegedly assaulted the woman – grabbing her by the throat, pushing her to the ground and punching her.
“The man allegedly assaulted the woman a second time – punching and kicking her – before she left the unit.“
The former host of Weekend Sunrise was arrested by police at his home in the early hours of Thursday morning, after the woman reported the allegations to police on Wednesday.
Mr O’Keefe is currently inside the CBD’s Day Street police station, where he is being charged. He is expected to appear in court later on Thursday.
In 2017, Mr O’Keefe was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia for his service to television and charity work.
He was a host at Channel Seven for 17 years. His contract with the network was not re-signed at the start of 2021.
