Crows head of football Adam Kelly said the 21-year-old had made "serious breaches".

"Tyson is deeply remorseful and embarrassed by his actions, and we have expressed our disappointment in his decision making," Kelly said.

"Fortunately, no one was hurt and he will receive appropriate education so he learns from this mistake.

"Tyson is a valued member of the Crows family and we will continue to support him through this difficult period."

Stengle has played five games for the club, including its round one loss to Sydney before the competition entered its shutdown period due to the coronavirus spread.

On top of expected police charges, Stengle faces a club-imposed sanction.
