English Rugby star arrested on drink charges

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.
