FREMANTLE recruit Shane Yarran has escaped WAFL suspension but still awaits his club-imposed punishment after police charged him with disorderly behaviour in public on Saturday night.

Yarran, 27, endured a nightmare weekend on multiple fronts.

He played just his third WAFL game of the season on Saturday after knee and calf injuries had curtailed his year to date.

Yarran gathered 14 disposals and went goalless in Peel Thunder's 39-point loss to Swan Districts, in which he was also reported for striking Swans veteran Matt Riggio. 

Later that night, Yarran was involved in an incident in Leederville and was issued with a move-on notice by police. He allegedly failed to obey the notice and was subsequently charged with disorderly behaviour in public and failure to obey an order given by police. 

Yarran met with Fremantle officials on Sunday before the club released a statement on Sunday afternoon detailing the incident but the Dockers are yet to confirm what internal sanction he will face.

The WAFL Match Review Panel has offered Yarran a reprimand for striking Riggio with an early guilty plea.

The panel assessed the incident as intentional conduct, low impact and body contact. The offence carries a penalty of a one-match suspension but can be reduced to a reprimand with an early plea. 

Yarran has played in the last two WAFL premierships with Subiaco and won the Bernie Naylor Medal as the competition's leading goalkicker last season. 

Fremantle recruited him with pick No.61 in last year's NAB AFL Draft.
