Troubled television star Andrew O’Keefe addresses alleged breach of bail charges


“You don’t get to hear the story,” he told reporters.

“The thing about the justice system is that we get no time to prepare as the defendant.”

He was then asked about the alleged failed drug test.

“That’s what we discovered in court today, that there’s a high probability of contamination,” he replied.

O’Keefe was arrested on Thursday, January 27 in relation to this incident and was later charged with two counts of ‘intentionally choking a person without consent’, three counts of ‘common assault’ and one count of ‘assault occasioning actual bodily harm’.

“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,” a police statement said.

“The man allegedly assaulted the woman a second time — punching and kicking her — before she left the unit.”
