In an incident that reminds us so-called celebrities aren't immune to road rage, AFL commentator Rex Hunt will face a preliminary hearing in Melbourne Magistrate's Court this month after allegedly assaulting a cyclist in July. The only headlines the TV fishing show personality has garnered in recent times relate to his poor behaviour, and the 59-year-old appeared to shrug off the implications of this latest misdemeanour when quizzed about it by Melbourne media.

South Melbourne police are investigating the incident that took place on Ormond Esplanade in Elwood which apparently involved Hunt getting out of his four-wheel drive and assaulting a man, resulting in the rider suffering a broken finger.
