Bulldogs forward Adam Elliott looks set to dodge punishment for his involvement in the bizarre ‘love triangle’ with ex-teammate Michael Lichaa’s partner Last weekend.
Lichaa caught Elliott in a very compromising position with her partner, Kara Childerhouse, after a drunken house warming night.
The former Bulldogs whore became angry, arrested by police and charged with common assault (domestic violence), destruction or damage to property (domestic violence) and fearful harassment / intimidation physical injuries (domestic violence).
The Bulldogs reported the incident to the NRL Integrity Unit and when the facts came out, Elliott came under fire on social media for his role in the case.
The difficult second rower was involved in two previous incidents off the field and there were calls for punishment.
But the Bulldogs look set to drop the incident – unless the Integrity Unit decides otherwise.
“At the end of the day, it’s not something we endorse, but he (Elliott) hasn’t broken any laws,” a Bulldogs source told Wide World of Sports.
“I hope he’s learned a lesson from that – our attitude is that he comes back to training and gets on with it.
“He’s not going to talk to the media or anything like that – it’s not going to get anywhere.
“Unless the NRL decides otherwise, we’ll just try to forget about it.”
