Ricky Nixon arrested for Facebook comment about toddler

The former AFL player agent allegedly posted a disgusting Facebook comment about a two-year-old girl.

Former AFL player agent Ricky Nixon has been arrested over an alarming comment he allegedly made about a two-year-old girl on Facebook, The Age reports.

After becoming involved in a back and forth with a woman on Facebook, in which it is said he posted a photo of her two-year-old granddaughter with the words “next f—”, Nixon was arrested on Wednesday for what police have described as “telecommunications offences.”

Nixon had been boasting of his recent court win again “St Kilda schoolgirl” Kim Duthie, who had tried to stop the release of his self-published autobiography, Ricky Nixon – My Side, which details the pair’s unconventional 2011 relationship.

The son of the woman who Nixon allegedly wrote to on Facebook suggested that Nixon was “an idiot” in regards to his tell-all book.

Nixon then blocked the woman’s son, prompting her to say the disgraced player agent could not “handle the heat.”

“Can’t handle the heat Ricky so you block them bahahaha classic hey,” she wrote.

Nixon then allegedly responded by posting a photo of the woman’s two-year-old granddaughter with the lewd comment.

The woman made a complaint to police on Wednesday morning.

“A 52-year-old Port Melbourne man was arrested at an address on Bay Street in relation to alleged telecommunications offences,” a police spokesperson said.

“He has been released pending further investigations.”
