Roosters star Todd Carney has been charged with drink driving by police, the club have confirmed.
Dally M medal winner Carney, 24, was stopped by police this morning for a random breath test whilst on his way to a business meeting.
A statement from the Roosters said they were considering a punishment for the former Canberra player.
It read: “The Club and Todd are very disappointed in his actions.
“Whilst the matter is set to go before the courts, the Club will discuss an appropriate action with Todd in due course.”
Carney is no stranger to controversy, he was sacked by Canberra in 2008 after a string of off-field incidents, the final of which was an allegation that he urinated on a man in a pub.
He was exiled to play for North Queensland lower league side Atherton in 2009, but returned to the NRL the following year with the Roosters.
He was awarded the Dally M player of the year after a sparkling year with the Tricolours, with whom he reached the Grand Final.
