Former WA Treasurer Troy Buswell arrested for alleged domestic violence charges

Former WA Treasurer Troy Buswell is facing six serious assault charges in an alleged case of domestic violence.

The former Liberal MP was reportedly arrested by cold case detectives overnight, accused of carrying out the attacks against his partner between 2015 and 2019.

The charges include three counts of aggravated assault occasioning bodily harm, three counts of aggravated common assault and one count of unlawful damage.

Mr Buswell has yet to plead to the assault charges and is due to be in court next month.
