Police have charged Garlett with affray after an early morning city brawl earlier this month.
Carlton player Jeff Garlett has been charged with affray and won’t travel to Adelaide with the squad for this weekend’s round 22 clash with Port Adelaide.
Garlett’s charge is in relation to an incident in the early hours of the morning on Sunday August 3.
The Blues announced on Wednesday night that Garlett will appear at the Magistrates Court on November 3.
“Garlett and the Club have cooperated with police throughout the investigation and Carlton will continue to offer Garlett support throughout this time,” the statement read.
Earlier on Wednesday, Blues coach Mick Malthouse said Garlett was in line for a recall to the senior squad, though he added that both Garlett and teammate Mitch Robinson had work to do to win back the respect of the Carlton squad.
The two players were involved in a brawl in the Melbourne CBD and both lied about Robinson’s involvement in the incident.
Carlton fined Robinson $5000 and the midfielder was ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken eyesocket.
Garlett received a $2500 fine and was ruled out of contention to play for the Blues against Gold Coast in round 20.
