Fresh charges have been laid over a helicopter crash in West Arnhem Land that claimed the life of Outback Wrangler star Chris ‘Willow’ Wilson.

Mr Willson was attached to a sling collecting crocodile eggs when the chopper went down in February.

NT police investigating the crash arrested a 44-year-old man this morning.

He has since been charged with conspiring and attempting to pervert the course of justice, destroying evidence and providing a false statement in a statutory declaration.

The 44-year-old has been granted bail to face Darwin Local Court on October 19.
