Today, rugby league returns in Australia with the best players in the NRL meeting in the traditional All Stars game in the first match of 2022 down under.
However, despite this positivity, a slightly more negative story has hit the news in Australia according to Zero Tackle.
Former Australian international Brent Kite has reportedly been arrested in New South Wales. This was after he failed to present his driving license having been pulled over driving an unregistered car. The incident in question occurred on Wednesday and it has been reported that he failed to lower his window and aid the officers.
Some reports even suggest that officers were forced to smash the window of the car to gain access. They subsequently acquired his license before an alcohol test took place which came back negative.
Arrested for failing to produce his license and driving an unregistered vehicle, he has since been released on bail.
In a statement made by a police source to News Corp, they said: “The driver refused to stop and instead continued into a unit complex driveway.
“Police approached the car and requested the driver produce a licence but he refused to wind down the window. The officers smashed in the window.”
The forward enjoyed a glittering NRL career famously helping Manly defeat Melbourne 40-0 in the 2008 Grand Final even winning the Clive Churchill Medal as Man of the Match that day before joining Penrith having already played for St George Illawarra Dragons.
