Daniel Kerr arrested

Former West Coast Eagles player Daniel Kerr has appeared in a Perth court charged with endangering life.
The 31-year-old was arrested following an incident in the northern Perth suburb of Glendalough on Monday night.
He was charged with two counts of endangering the life, health or safety of a person and kept in custody until his appearance in Perth Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.
Kerr's lawyer John Prior said his client acknowledged they were serious allegations.
The court heard the alleged victims were friends of Kerr.
His head was bowed throughout the hearing.
He was granted bail, with a series of conditions including that he not contact the complainants and that he stays away from both the Glendalough home where the alleged incident took place and an address in North Beach.
He was also subjected to a night curfew between the hours of 7.00pm and 7.00am.
Kerr, who appeared in court wearing a blue hooded top and shorts, was released on $5,000 bail with a $5,000 surety.
The ABC understands he was transferred to Hakea Prison, where he was expected to remain overnight.
He is due to appear in court again on November 26.
The West Coast Eagles released a short statement on Wednesday.
"The West Coast Eagles are disappointed and saddened at news of Daniel Kerr's recent arrest," the club said.
"We will continue to support Daniel, who was an outstanding player for this club, to get the help he needs to recover from this situation and to get his life back on track.
"As this matter is now in the hands of police, the club has no further comment to make."
Kerr, a champion midfielder, retired from football at the end of the 2013 season.
West Coast drafted Kerr from WAFL side East Fremantle at pick 18 in the 2000 AFL draft.
He kicked 122 goals in 220 games for the Eagles.
Kerr was a member of the West Coast side that lost to Sydney in the 2005 grand final and then became a premiership player when the Eagles beat the same opponents in the 2006 decider.
He was a runner-up in the Brownlow Medal in 2005 and 2007, represented Australia in the 2002 International Rules series against Ireland and was named All-Australian in 2007.
