Suns star charged with drink driving

The Gold Coast Suns have confirmed star Jarrod Harbrow will miss this weekend’s clash after he was busted drink driving on Monday.

The club released a statement on Monday night, confirming the 28-year-old has been charged with driving under the influence of alcohol after recording a blood alcohol reading of 0.108 yesterday morning.

It’s believed he had been drinking at home on Sunday evening before he got behind the wheel.

“Jarrod has expressed to us that he is extremely embarrassed by his actions and understands his poor judgement has let many people and his club down,” General Manager of Football, Marcus Ashcroft said.

“In the next period of time Jarrod will have to work hard to regain the trust and respect of his teammates, peers and the wider Gold Coast community.

“On top of the legal sanctions to be imposed in due course, we can confirm that Jarrod will be unavailable for senior selection this week. The club will hold further discussions with Jarrod and finalise its penalty following consultation with senior management and the player leadership group.”

In a further blow for the club, Jack Martin was the victim of an assault over the weekend.

Police have charged a man in relation to the incident.

Martin has been cleared of any misconduct and will be free to play this weekend.
