Ben Cousins has reportedly been assaulted in a WA prison according to Damian Barrett.
Cousins was allegedly assaulted after apparently declining to join a game of footy with fellow inmates.
Barrett broke the story on The Footy Show tonight.
"The unfortunate dramas continue for Ben Cousins, the former Eagle recently being assaulted in WA prison," Barrett said.
"He was approached by a group of inmates to play in a football 'scratch-match'.
"He declined that approach and was subsequent to doing that he was set upon by the inmates."
Cousins is serving a 12-month prison sentence for stalking and breaching a violence restraining order.
