Turner had his number taken for head-butting Carngham-Linton’s Jake Pring in the fourth quarter of the Bombers’ win last weekend.

The onballer pleaded not guilty to the charge at the AFL Goldfields Region Independent Tribunal, with the report detailing low levels of severity and force and no injury caused to Pring.

Turner, a past league team of the year member, was given the benefit of the doubt and is available for the clash with the Bulldogs at Buninyong on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Darley’s Michael Turner has been cleared of a kicking charge from the Devils’ loss to Ballarat.

Turner was reported for an incident with Swan Nick O’Farrell, but pleaded not guilty. Turner is free to play in Darley’s clash with Melton this Saturday.
