The former Channel Nine star, who had allegedly grabbed Ms Russo’s arm, was charged with common assault and given a provisional warrant for her arrest for violence.

Daily Mail Australia understands there is no history of intimate partner violence.

NSW Police issued a statement on Sunday afternoon saying officers were called to the property following reports of a domestic incident.

“Following investigations, a 59-year-old man was arrested and taken to Cessnock Police Station and charged with Common Assault (DV),” the statement read.

“The Coogee man has been granted probationary bond to appear in Singleton Local Court on Thursday, November 24, 2022.”

As part of the AVO, Williams must not be near or in the company of Ms. Russo for at least 12 hours after drinking alcohol or using illicit drugs.

Williams’ bail conditions, seen by Daily Mail Australia, state that he must reside at his sprawling beachside home in Coogee, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. That four-bedroom home (above) is going up for auction this Saturday with a guide price of $5.4 million.

Williams’ attorney, Paul McGirr, said his client was a loving family man who was “extremely embarrassed by all of this.”

“At this stage there’s a lot more to the story, we’ll enter a plea of ​​not guilty, get an evidence report and then go from there,” McGirr said.

The alleged altercation in Howes Valley came months after the high-profile newscaster resigned from Channel Nine citing “health reasons”.

“It is with a heavy heart that I have decided to resign from Nine,” Williams wrote to colleagues in March.

‘Leaving the best News team is difficult and being part of that team is an honor.

“But I have struggled for years with increasingly poor health and I want to address that now for the sake of a bigger team, my family.”
