A WOMAN has been charged over the leak of a naked video involving former AFL star Dane Swan.

The Herald Sun first reported a 20-year-old woman will face court in December after allegedly sending out the footage without the Collingwood premiership winner’s consent.

The video, which was allegedly shopped to various media outlets and was circulated online in May, showed Swan kissing a woman in bed.

Swan went to police and made a formal complaint — sparking an investigation from Victoria Police’s criminal investigation unit.

Victoria Police released a statement on Tuesday afternoon, which the Herald Sun reported was to do with Swan’s situation.

“Victoria Police Detectives from Stonnington Crime Investigation Unit have charged a woman following the online distribution of a video without consent earlier this year,” the statement read.

“Detectives have charged the 20-year-old Meadows (SA) woman after she allegedly shared a video of a sexual nature electronically and online, without consent which the victim became aware of on 1 May.

“She has been charged with one count each of visual capture of genitals and distribution of an intimate image.

“The woman has been summons to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 10 December.”

Swan addressed the scandal by releasing a statement to Channel 9’s The Footy Show in May soon after Victoria Police revealed it would be investigating the matter.

“I have recently become aware of a video of me being published and circulated on the internet,” Swan said. “Contrary to some media reports, the video is not a ‘sex tape’.

“I have reported the matter to the police who are investigating the distribution.”

Swan played 258 games for Collingwood before retiring in 2016. The Pies won the flag in 2010 and Swan won the Brownlow Medal in 2011.
