Cousins charged over meth and VRO breach

AAP logoAAP 18/10/2016

Troubled former AFL premiership player Ben Cousins will appear in court charged with breaching a violence restraining order and possessing methamphetamine.

Cousins was reportedly arrested outside a house in Canning Vale at 1pm on Monday.

The Brownlow Medallist and former captain of the West Coast Eagles will appear in Armadale Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

The father-of-two, who has a history of drug abuse, was suspended from the AFL for one year in 2007 for bringing the game into disrepute.

He made a comeback with Richmond before retiring in 2010.

Since then, Cousins' troubles have continued under the glare of the public, most recently in June when he was reportedly treated in hospital after standing in the middle of Canning Highway in Como directing traffic.
