Horse trainer John Nikolic 'fighting for life' after arrest
Australian horse trainer ‘fighting for life’ after arrest
Controversial Australian horse trainer John Nikolic is reportedly in a critical condition after being arrested in relation to a drug and gun haul.
The Herald Sun reports Nikolic attempted self-harm in custody and is now fighting for life in a Fijian hospital.
His family are yet to release a statement on his condition.
Nikolic was apprehended on Thursday after police uncovered $20 million worth of cocaine and ecstasy from a yacht moored on the small island of Denarau.
The Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT) confirmed to the newspaper that the accused’s family is being offered consular assistance.
Nikolic, who is based on the Gold Coast, has had a scandal-riddled decade, receiving a year-long ban from racing in 2015 for doping a horse.
He was also accused of the murder of Victorian racing figure Les Samba, who was gunned down in 2011.
Nikolic was never charged over Samba’s death.
