Police are investigating an incident outside Canberra Raiders player Joel Thompson's apartment after a cyclist was struck by a glass bottle.
The incident occurred just one day after Thompson's Raiders' teammate Blake Ferguson was ejected from the Foreshore music festival on November 24 for reportedly spitting at patrons.
It is understood that fellow Raiders players and friends went back to Thompson's unit following the music festival for an after-party.
However it is not believed Thompson was responsible for throwing the bottle.
An ACT Policing spokeswoman confirmed they were investigating an incident where a person was struck by a glass bottle while riding along Mouat St in Lyneham on November 25.
"We've never said who the person is. As the matter is under investigation it would not be appropriate to comment any further," she said.
A Canberra Raiders spokesman on Thursday said the club had been made aware of the incident outside Thompson's residence.
"We were informed (of the incident) yesterday and Joel has denied having involvement in it," he said.
"Joel has had some correspondence with police with their inquiries."
He said as the matter was under police investigation it would be inappropriate to comment any further.
The incidents both occurred just two weeks after Canberra began pre-season training for 2013.
Thompson, 24, was chosen for the Indigenous All-Stars team from 2010 to 2012 and was earlier this year awarded both the Raiders' Coach's Award and the Geoff Caldwell Memorial Award for Club Education and Welfare.
The latter award was given to him for his outstanding off-field work in 2012 by graduating from a course in Indigenous leadership.
A Raiders spokesman said in a brief statement on Wednesday that Ferguson had been punished internally for being ejected from the Foreshore music festival, but declined to confirm it was for spitting.
