GEELONG’s Brad Hartman has been charged with leaving the scene of accident and failing to stop at a stop sign.
The 20-year-old was returning home to South Australia when the incident happened in St. Peter's late on Sunday afternoon. He clipped a parked car but continued driving.
Geelong said Hartman then arrived home and after talking with his father, informed police on Monday before being charged on Tuesday.
A court date has yet to be set.
"We are disappointed and frustrated that Brad has been involved in this incident and believe there have been too many motoring related issues with our players in recent years," Geelong CEO Brian Cook said.
"Brad should have handled this differently by stopping and then providing his details at the time.
"As a club it is clear that we need to re-assess the manner in which we work with our players around their responsibilities as representatives of the Geelong Football Club. We will convene in the new year when the key people return to the club to develop a way forward in regard to this.
"The club has advised the relevant internal and external parties of the details of this incident."
Hartman, a former junior basketballer star, has played five senior games after making his debut against St Kilda in round 13 this year.
He was selected at pick No.77 in the 2012 NAB AFL Draft.
