Chooks clear Ferguson over Carter ‘hoax’ call
THE Sydney Roosters have cleared Blake Ferguson of any wrongdoing after emergency services rushed to the NRL star’s home yesterday morning.
Police and paramedics moved in on the home of Ferguson (pictured) amid concerns for the player’s young children following a phone call from former teammate, Paul Carter. It is now believed Carter’s phone call was a hoax.
“Emergency services were called to a home at Wemyss St in Marrickville this morning after concerns were raised for the welfare of children,” a police said.
“Officers attended about 5.15am and spoke with a 27-yearold man. NSW Ambulance paramedics checked two young children but no further police action is anticipated as this time.”
The NRL is awaiting a final report from the Roosters to close the matter.
Former Gold Coast Titan Carter, 25, was sacked by the Roosters in June after being involved in a drugs scandal that resulted in him this month pleading guilty to supplying cocaine to an ex-teammate. statement
