Chooks clear Fer­gu­son over Carter ‘hoax’ call

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

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
