The star of Toby Greene, the father of Greater Western Sydney Giants, remains behind bars after he had not filed a bail request after his arrest at the AFL Grand Final for alleged maltreatment of a police officer.
Michael Greene, 60 years old, is said to have attacked the female police officer at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Saturday because he was escorted because he was too drunk.
The police allegedly removed Mr Greene from male bathrooms at around 5 p.m. following complaints from other spectators.

Greene appeared on Sunday at the Melbourne Magistrates & Court where he did not request bail, The Herald Sun. reported.
He was accused of deliberately causing serious injury, attacking and resisting the police.
Mr. Greene's lawyer told the court that he needed Valium and suboxone while he remained in police custody.
Suboxone, or Buprenorphine, is an opioid used to treat & # 39; opioid addiction, acute pain, and chronic pain & # 39 ;.
Mr. Greene and his 26-year-old son are supposed to be alienated and have not had a solid relationship in about two decades.
& # 39; Toby is alienated from his father, & # 39; told the mother of the AFL star Kate to Seven News on Sunday.
& # 39; His father has fought mental health problems and has had nothing to do with this family for more than 20 years. & # 39;
The Victoria police confirmed that a man had been removed from the site after allegedly stopping a female officer.
It was reported that a second female officer was bitten who prompted Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton to tackle behavior that led to the alleged incidents.

It's just not good enough for the police to be subject to that kind of behavior, & said Ashton.
& # 39; Any violence against police officers is repulsive and must be regretted.
& # 39; The type of problems that our police face today is becoming increasingly difficult.
Greene appeared in court wearing a blue shirt over what appeared to be an orange footy sweater.
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;
Greene and his son are reportedly alienated and have not had a solid relationship in recent years
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.
