Hunt was arrested early on Saturday morning after police allegedly caught the 31-year-old with what was believed to be cocaine.

His lawyer Adam Magill said Hunt was devastated and was "not in a good way emotionally".

He said the penny was starting to drop and Hunt was just coming to terms with the gravity of the situation.

Mr Magill said he could not give his client any advice as he had not yet seen a police summary of the facts.
