NRL star ‘ashamed and remorseful’ after arrest in Tweed Heads

UPDATE @ JANUARY 18 | Broncos star Payne Haas is ‘ashamed and extremely remorseful’ following his arrest in Tweed Heads on Saturday night.

It’s understood the 21-year-old was with his partner at Jack Evans Boat Harbour around 10.00pm Saturday night, when they were approached by police.

Haas was reportedly intoxicated, with police alleging he then became abusive towards officers.


He was arrested, and has since been charged with offensive language and intimidating police.

The Brisbane club has now released a statement, saying Haas is ‘ashamed and extremely remorseful for his actions’, and that the club will continue to work with Haas going forward.

Broncos CEO Paul White says it’s disappointing and not acceptable.

“We do set the highest standards for the behaviour of our players, they understand that and Payne knows this is well short of those standards.

“Payne knows he has done the wrong thing and is prepared to take ownership of his actions.

“As a club, we will continue to work with Payne to ensure he understands what he must do to improve, and also ensure he continues to receive the support and education that he needs.”
