The Daily Telegraph is reporting the rookie was pulled up by Gold Coast police on Monday night, and was charged after his side was bundled out of the finals last Friday night by the Broncos in dramatic fashion.

Lawton made his first grade debut for the Titans in round 17, however was sidelined late in the season with a fractured and dislocated ankle.

“We are aware of the incident,” a Titans spokesperson told News Corp.

“As far as we know, this was a family domestic matter between two males.

“As it is now a police matter, the club will be making no further comment.”

The spokesperson also confirmed that the NRL and the Integrity Unit had been informed of the incident, however an investigation would not be launched until further details emerged.

This arrestcomes following a video of superstar signing Jarryd Hayne sharing company with an alleged bikie emerged, earlier in the week.
