Former AFL Player Shane Mumford Filmed 'Snorting' White Powder
Video showing the former AFL player snorting what appears to be a white powder has been circulated online.
The clip went online this morning and shows the shirtless Premiership player with five lines of what appears to be a white powder racked up on a table.
A group of men gathered around him can be heard chanting his nickname as he leans in and appears to snort the powder.
Ten Eyewitness News approached Mumford for comment.
"Nah, I'm not making any comment at this time buddy," he said.
Asked whether it was in fact him in the video, he replied: "Like I said, sorry, I'm not making any comment".
An AFL spokesperson said the organisation is aware of the video and is looking into the matter.
"We won’t be providing any further comment until we have all relevant information and have completed our inquiries."
The Giants said in a statement they are aware of an incident, and the video footage, from three years ago.
In statement, the club said it understood the incident took place in 2015 shortly after Mumford had suffered a season-ending injury in round 11 that year.
"The club is extremely distressed by the footage and views Shane’s actions as completely counter to the club’s values," the club said.
"The club will be working with Shane to ensure he engages in a rehabilitation program along with a range of other measures.
"Shane has expressed deep remorse, embarrassment and distress in relation to his actions. He understands he has let himself, his family and the club down and caused great embarrassment to those around him."
The club has kept the AFL informed of this matter, it said.
