Photographs have emerged of the dramatic moment when Australian cricket legend Michael Slater was kicked off the plane after a fight with two girlfriends while boarding.
The commentator for Channel Seven was aboard a Qantas flight from Sydney to the NSW city of Wagga Wagga on Sunday afternoon when he became embroiled in a heated exchange with two women with whom he was traveling.
Witnesses told the 2 GB Slater radio station cursed and shouted abuse at one of the women before he locked himself in a bathroom on the plane and refused to come out.
Photos taken from the domestic terminal obtained by Daily Mail Australia show Slater on the asphalt, surrounded by airport security and airline staff just after he was ordered from the plane.

A witness claimed that Slater had verbally abused one of the women, who told him to get away from her during the exchange.
The witness had no idea that it was the Australian cricket legend until afterwards.
& # 39; I think it's important that men who abuse women should be called & she said to Daily Mail Australia.
