EARLIER @ 6.45am: Gold Coast AFL player Jarrod Harbrow will face Southport Magistrates Court today after being charged with drink driving in June.

The 28-year-old was charged after allegedly recording a blood alcohol reading of 0.108 – more than double the legal limit – on June 5.

Harbrow said he had been drinking the night before and was on his way to training when he was pulled over.

He claims he was unaware he was still under the influence of alcohol.

“This isn’t acceptable and it is a really poor judgment that I have made,” Harbrow told reporters the day after the incident.

Harbrow is one of the Suns’ most influential players, making a club record 124 appearances after joining the club from the Western Bulldogs in 2010.

The club has punished Harbrow for his alleged drink driving offence, imposing a two-game ban and ordering him to enrol in a Queensland traffic offenders program and donate $5000 to a road trauma and education program.
