Reports five Qld Cowboys charged over alleged car egging

There are reports five North Queensland Cowboys have been charged after allegedly being busted egging cars.

Queensland Police confirmed they had issued five men, aged 18, 21, 22, 23 and 25, with Notices to Appear in court after an incident in Currajong, Townsville overnight.

While police haven’t identified those involved, NewsCorp reports they are all Cowboys players, however only one of them is believed to play first grade.


“Police are investigating an incident involving five men which occurred on Hugh Street, Currajong last night,” police said in a statement.

“It will be alleged around 10pm the men attended a Hugh Street convenience store and purchased a number of eggs.

“As the men left the business it will be alleged they threw eggs at five vehicles parked nearby causing damage before driving off in a vehicle.”

About an hour later, police pulled over a vehicle for a random breath test, when a member of the public advised them that the car had been involved in an earlier egging incident.

Police then allegedly discovered a number of eggs and egg cartons in the vehicle.

The men, whose names have not been revealed, will all appear in Townsville Magistrates Court on October 11.
