Former Melbourne forward Liam Jurrah

UPDATE: Former Melbourne star Liam Jurrah has handed himself into police, a day after a warrant was issued for his arrest after he failed to appear in a South Australian court.

Jurrah and his lawyer attended the Elizabeth Police Station on Wednesday afternoon, where the ex-Demon was arrested.

The 24-year-old was due to face charges relating to assault and drink driving at the Elizabeth Magistrates Court on Tuesday morning.



Jurrah is waiting to stand trial in the Northern Territory over his alleged involvement in a machete attack near Alice Springs last March.



Meanwhile, Jurrah's AFL career is in extreme doubt with Port Adelaide revealing the ex-Demon has not taken up its offer to train and play with its SANFL team in 2013.



"Port Adelaide has offered extensive support in an attempt to assist Liam, but unfortunately it appears that complex circumstances in his life away from football have prevented him from making the commitment required by the club," the clubs said.



"Port Adelaide has been genuine in its desire to help and has attempted to maintain dialogue with Liam over recent months, but it is clear that he now needs to focus entirely on the matters he is dealing with in his personal life.



"The club wishes Liam well and will continue to offer what support it can, but it believes playing football cannot be a primary consideration at this time."



The enigmatic forward played 36 games for Melbourne, kicking 81 goals.
