Former Australian cricketer Michael Slater has been charged with breaching a protective order, two months after an alleged domestic violence incident.

In October, Slater was charged with stalking and harassment offenses over an alleged domestic violence incident.

NSW Police arrested the former batsman earlier today, after which he was refused police bail.

51-year-old Slaters appeared at Court on Wednesday which heard he had allegedly sent 66 text messages and made 18 calls to his ex-partner over about two-and-a-half hours on Tuesday night.

The AVO has been in place since November 19 and followed earlier allegations he used a mobile phone to menace, harass or offend his ex.

Slater played 74 Tests and 42 ODIs for Australia between 1993 and 2001 before moving into the commentary.
