EXCLUSIVE: Former West Coast Eagles star Daniel Kerr was found by a member of the WA public on a Kalgoorlie street in distress and in need of medical assistance.

A former West Coast Eagles star has been found unresponsive on the side of a Western Australian street before he was taken to hospital.

9News has confirmed with WA Police that former AFL player Daniel Kerr was found this morning by a member of the public on Hannah Street in Kalgoorlie in distress and in need of medical assistance about 7.45am.

Emergency services were called to the scene to assess Kerr, before he was then transported to the Kalgoorlie Health Campus suffering suspected alcohol poisoning.

The 36-year-old is believed to have discharged himself from the medical facility earlier today.

The incident is not the first time Kerr has found himself in trouble, after publicly admitting in 2015 to a spate of drug and alcohol problems, pledging to try and rebuild his life.

A year before that, he was granted bail after being charged over a violent incident in Perth in which he allegedly threw petrol at a man and woman.

A family spokesperson has tonight told 9News the former footballer has recovered and is in a stable condition.
