Stop partying says the Police
After police were called to a hotel in Hobart, England captain Joe Root, veteran fast bowler James Anderson, and Australian players Nathan Lyon and Travis Head, among others, had their post-Ashes party apparently shut down.
The players can be seen being ordered to leave the party by the police in a video that has gone viral on social media.
“Too loud,” one police officer can be heard saying. We’ve been requested to come because you’ve been instructed to pack up.
“It’s time to go to bed.” “Thank you,” a third voice remarked, while another said, “They just want to pack up.”
Dispatched in means of noise complaint
According to the Daily Telegraph, the officers were dispatched in response to a noise complaint lodged at the team hotel.
“Tasmania Police attended the Crowne Plaza Hobart on Monday morning after reports were made of intoxicated people in a function area,” the spokesperson told The Daily Telegraph.
“Police approached the visitors just after 6:00 a.m. and requested them to leave the area. “Police will not take any further action.”
