Dew, 41, was videoed outside the Miami Tavern Shark Bar urinating against a wall at a drink with fellow senior members of the Gold Coast Suns staff.
It is not known exactly when the video was shot, but it surfaced just hours after his side’s final game of the severely interrupted 2020 season.
Dew was reportedly filmed urinating by his colleague before the video was shared to a WhatsApp group and eventually wound up online, The Courier Mail reports.
The morning after the video was shot the staffer reportedly realised his mistake and asked everyone in the WhatsApp group to delete it – but it was already too late.

Queensland premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has come under fire for allowing the AFL to set up private hubs in the state she controls, after a number of players and officials were involved in scandals.
Richmond Tigers pair Sydney Stack and Callum Coleman-Jones were sent home and banned for 10 weeks after getting into a fight outside a strip club.
The AFL is also currently investigating Harley Bennell for a potential breach of strict COVID-19 rules that were agreed upon so the league could set up in the state.
There have been similar issues in other hubs around the country, including in Perth where Sydney Swans star Elijah Taylor was caught sneaking his then girlfriend into his team’s private hotel accommodation.
Police have since charged Taylor with domestic violence offences after an alleged incident involving he and the same woman, his now ex-girlfriend, Lekahni Pearce.
