The former star said he had been smoking a gram of ice a week after leaving the AFL in “a bad way”.

Trafficking charges were later dismissed and Thompson was fined $3000 and placed on a community order.

The allegations against Thompson come just weeks after ex-North Melbourne coach Dean Laidley was released on bail on a string of charges including stalking.

Ex-Eagle Laidley allegedly “bombarded” a woman with almost 50 phone calls in a single day and threatened to run her over in his car.

Following his arrest on May 4, police allegedly found 0.43grams of methamphetamine hidden inside a bra Laidley was wearing at the time.

Laidley will be back in court next month.
