Second AFL player charged with drink driving
A second AFL player has been charged with drink driving in the space of 24-hours.
Crows forward Tyson Stengle initially asked to pull over for driving an unregistered vehicle and subsequently recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.125.
Crows Head of Football Adam Kelly said these were serious breaches of the Club’s standards, as well as those of the broader community.
“Tyson is deeply remorseful and embarrassed by his actions, and we have expressed our disappointment in his decision making,” Kelly said.
“Fortunately, no one was hurt and he will receive appropriate education so he learns from this mistake.”
The latest incident comes after Bulldogs vice-captain Lachie Hunter was charged with drinking under the influence after he crashed his car into four packed cars, one of which belonged to teammates Bailey Smith’s girlfriend’s parents after Smith drove away from the scene with Hunter.
The midfielder has lost his license for 12 months and has been hit with a $1652 fine for breaking COVID-19 social distancing restrictions.
