Fallen AFL premiership player Ben Cousins has reportedly been released from prison (file).

Fallen AFL premiership player Ben Cousins has reportedly been released from prison 10 months into his one-year sentence for stalking and repeatedly breaching a restraining order taken out by his ex-partner.

The 39-year-old former West Coast Eagles captain and Brownlow medallist was jailed in March for causing "ongoing terror" to Maylea Tinecheff, with whom he has two young children.

Cousins, who has struggled with drug addiction, was reportedly picked up by his father Bryan from Acacia Prison on Wednesday morning and taken to the family home in Bicton.
