Harlequins and England rugby international Danny Care has been arrested on drink related charges for the third time in the last three months.
The scrum-half, who was dropped by England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster for previous indiscretions was found urinating against a wall by British Transport Police on a night out in Leeds over the weekend.
In the aftermath of the incident; Care was quoted as saying: “After an evening out with friends in the centre of Leeds, after a long time queuing, I was in a taxi home when I got caught short and asked the taxi driver to pull over so I could relieve myself behind a nearby building. The British Transport Police found me doing that and took me to the nearest police station where I was released with a caution.
I understand that people will link what has happened this weekend to previous ‘offences’ but, as with the previous incidents, it is more a case of having a small bladder than anything else.”
Care was fined a total of £3,000 and banned from driving for 16 months after pleading guilty to drink-driving in the early hours of New Year’s Day. That incident came three weeks after he had been fined by police for being drunk and disorderly.
