WP player in drunk-driving arrest
Mon, 14 Jul 2014 16:10
Another Western Province player has landed in hot water over driving under the influence of alcohol.
Western Province Rugby, in a statement on Monday, confirmed that one of their players was held on suspicion that his blood alcohol content exceeded the legal limit.
According to the statement the unnamed player's vehicle was stopped at random at the weekend.
"There is no allegation that he drove the vehicle in any untoward manner," the statement said.
"WP Rugby fully supports safe and responsible road usage.
"WP Rugby will also support the player, who has an exemplary disciplinary record to date, through its employee assistance programme.
"Western Province Rugby regards the matter as sub-judice and neither WP Rugby, nor the player, will comment further."
This follows less than a year after WP and Stormers flyer Cheslin Kolbe was arrested in the same manner.
Kolbe is set to appear in court next month, as his case continues.
There is no indication when the latest of the WP miscreants will appear in court.
