The star of Toby Greene, the father of Greater Western Sydney Giants, claimed that the crackdown police him & # 39; racist & # 39; had been hit after he was arrested after losing his AFL Grand Final team to the Richmond Tigers.
Michael Greene would have attacked a female police officer on Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday because he was escorted because he was too drunk.
It is thought that the police removed Greene from the male bathrooms around 5 pm after complaints from other spectators.
Witness Annie, who asked her full name not to be revealed, said that Greene screamed senior in his voice.
The police surrounds Michael Green outside the MCG on Saturday. They placed it next to a sign with the & # 39; entry conditions & # 39; that Greene reportedly violated
Michael Greene allegedly attacked a female police officer on Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday because he was escorted because he was too drunk
& # 39; He shouted that the police are terrorists, that the police were racist & # 39 ;, she told Daily Mail Australia. & # 39; He yelled at everyone. & # 39;
& # 39; I think at least eight officers had to barricade him from the crowd as they went through his bag. He was just so agitated. & # 39;
Annie said the clearly stunned Greene was kept at bay for up to 15 minutes while the police worked to get a van to the hall to evacuate him.
& # 39; Four police officers were needed to get this guy in the back of the van. I had no idea it was Toby Greene's father and I just thought it was a completely drunk man … and I thought "what a waste of police resources for one person". & # 39;
The police spent up to half an hour searching Greene's assets and told the furious drink farmer to keep his mouth shut, Annie said.
& # 39; It was just like that in your face. The police did a great job because I was afraid this could be ugly, especially with GWS losses, but they contained the situation well, & she said.
Daily Mail Australia can reveal that the police might have been wiser to treat drunk Greene elderly people in greater numbers.
A search in his criminal history shows that the troubled father struggled to stay on the straight and has more than a dozen previous convictions.
Prior allegations include attacks, stalking, theft and multiple driving violations, including driving under the influence and driving during disqualification.
He was also previously convicted of resisting the arrest in 2004 when he received a community-based warrant and a sex offender program to tackle his stalking crimes.
Previous court orders state that he is suspected of schitzophrenia and that he has fought for years against drug addiction.
It is understood that Greene and his 26-year-old son are alienated and have not had a solid relationship in recent years.
Victoria Police confirmed that a 59-year-old man was removed from the ground after allegedly holding back a female officer.

He was accused of deliberately causing serious injury, attacking and resisting the police.
He appeared on the court on Sunday dressed in a blue shirt about what appeared to be an orange footy sweater.
While in custody, he needed Valium and suboxon, which is used to treat opioid addiction, Greene's lawyer told the court.
Greene did not request a bail and was sent back to the Ringwood Magistrates & Court next month.
Toby & # 39; s final campaign was difficult at best before his father was arrested.
20-year-old cousin Finley from the half-ahead flank took his own life in June, when the GWS star and his team worked to qualify for their first major final performance.
His mother, Kate Greene, told 3AW how she had no choice but to tell her son the news over the phone.
& # 39; I had to call Toby in Sydney and tell him what happened and he just drove straight to the airport in his shorts and flip flops and jumped on the first plane to come home, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; Since then we have only picked up the pieces. & # 39;
Toby was going to dedicate the premiership to his deceased cousin if his team could overthrow the Tigers.
& # 39; If he wins, he does it for Finley, & # 39; said Mrs. Greene.
& # 39; There is nothing that can ever make this better, it is the most tragic thing that can happen to a family, but it can give us a bit of luck for the day. & # 39;
Instead, it was Mrs. Greene's ex-husband who stole the show in the MCG on Saturday.
Toby said earlier that his parents separated when he was five or six, but both his parents did their best to raise him.
& # 39; I don't think I've had a difficult upbringing & # 39 ;, he told The Herald Sun in 2017.
& # 39; Mom and Dad were almost the opposite. Mama was a really good mother. I went to a private school, got a scholarship for Wesley and that was lucky, and Dad had some problems growing up.
& # 39; He is still a good father, but sometimes I couldn't control himself, I think. & # 39;

Toby acknowledged that he and his father had some difficult and sometimes concise interactions that grew up – especially when his father was drunk.
But he said his father's heart was always in the right place.
& # 39; He is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. If you ask all my friends, he always took great care of us, he just let so much go. He really cares, he really understands, but he just endured his body too much. & # 39;
A spokeswoman for the GWS Giants declined to comment on the case involving the alleged involvement of Toby's father.
New legislation recently introduced by the Victorian government requires courts to pronounce a sentence of at least six months behind bars for anyone convicted of attacking a rescuer.
Greene was one of the 43 people who were ejected from the big final game on Saturday.
Most of those people were removed due to behavioral problems, while others smuggled alcohol and drugs into the event.

Other violations were ticketing violations and mistreatment of police officers.
Two men from Brookfield were also accused of mistreatment of the police.
A 21-year-old is said to have bitten an officer who was to be treated in hospital after the attack, while a 27-year-old was accused of beating an officer on the back of the head.
Another six people were arrested during the celebration of the match after the 89-point victory of the Richmond Tigers over the Giants.
Fans lit torches and set fire to GWS merchandise to celebrate victory.
