– A high-profile jockey is being investigated over the alleged assault of a taxi driver.
Detectives interviewed the controversial racing identity on Tuesday following a formal complaint from the cabbie.
It has been alleged the jockey bashed the driver after a race meet outside Melbourne in February.
It is believed to have occurred after a mix-up over the jockey’s intended destination.
Others were present in the taxi, although police have found few witnesses willing to help with inquiries.
