Wallaby Hunt arrested for ‘drug possession’
Wallabies player Karmichael Hunt has been arrested, reportedly for possessing drugs, with Rugby Australia yesterday launching an investigation into the incident. Hunt, a former rugby league international who made his Australia debut this year, was detained along with another man in Brisbane early on Saturday morning during a “random street stop”. He was allegedly caught with a white powder that local media said was cocaine. The Sydney Morning Herald said he was due to appear in court on January 29, charged with two counts of drug possession. “He is very upset, as anyone would expect, and pretty much inconsolable,” Hunt’s solicitor Adam Magill said.
