Marlion Pickett Burglary Arrest: AFL premiership player Marlion Pickett arrested on alleged burglary charges | How much is Marlion Pickett salary, net worth.
Marlion Pickett, who has won two AFL championships, has been confirmed by Richmond to be in jail on suspicion of burglary.
On Monday, the 31-year-old will appear before Perth Magistrates Court for a bail hearing. The WA Police have accused Pickett of four offences of serious burglary.
Among other allegations, he also faces three counts of theft and three counts of malicious damage. Between December 2022 and January 2023, the alleged offenses are said to have occurred.
According to Anthony Van Der Wielen, Pickett’s manager, he has a “strong intent” to defend himself.
Pickett was drafted by Richmond with the club’s first selection and 13th pick overall in the 2019 mid-season rookie draft in late May 2019 after the retirement of Shaun Grigg, one of the Tigers’ 2017 premiership players and the one who ultimately presented Pickett with his first match guernsey for the Grand Final, opened a spot on their list.
Pickett participated in aerobic conditioning work throughout the first three weeks of his injury rehabilitation, joining the club’s rehab group under the guidance of injured captain Trent Cotchin. He began full contact training in the last week of July and made a reserves-grade debut for Richmond’s VFL side in the first weekend of August, kicking one goal and recording 20 disposals. Pickett was named an AFL-level emergency in each of the following two weeks, but ultimately played each week in the reserves in a dual role as a midfielder and half-back. He remained with the reserves into their VFL finals campaign, kicking two goals and recording 21 disposals in a qualifying final win over Essendon.
Pickett was named as an AFL emergency the following week for the qualifying final against Brisbane, before contributing 16 disposals and seven tackles in a VFL preliminary final win over Port Melbourne.
