The teenager who egged Australian senator Fraser Anning will be released without charge.
Police confirmed on Tuesday afternoon that 17-year-old Will Connolly, dubbed "EggBoy" by the internet, has been interviewed and released.
Connolly's lawyer Peter Gordon told 9 News there was "no indication" charges would be laid against the teen.

"But obviously police have got a job to do," he said.
"To use Will's own words, the police have been awesome."
Will Connolly became an Internet icon on Saturday, after smashing an egg on Anning's head due to the Senator's comments about the Christchurch terror attack.
Anning blamed Muslim immigration for the massacre.
Connolly was hit in the face twice by Anning, and wrestled to the ground by his supporters. Connolly was then held on the ground in a chokehold before being led away by police.
Gordon confirmed Connolly would not pursue legal action against Anning, or his supporters.
A GoFundMe created for Connolly for his legal fees and "more eggs" has raised over $70,000.
Connolly has said he will donate the majority of the money raised towards the families of the victims.
