Gold Coast Titans forward Paul Carter has been stood down effective immediately for drink driving.

Carter was charged by police for high-range drink driving last night.

"Paul Carter has been stood down, effective immediately, from playing by the club after being charged by police overnight with high range drink driving," the Titans said in a statement today.

"The NRL's Integrity Unit has been advised of the offence and the club will continue to work closely with the NRL as the matter is further investigated."

The 22-year-old son of former Panthers playmaker Steve Carter joined the Titans as a rookie after a number of years in the Bulldogs' development program.

He made his NRL debut off the bench in the Gold Coast's 18-12 season-opening win.
