GOLD Coast Titans forward Paul Carter has been stood down from the club, effective immediately, following an alleged drunken incident in Surfers Paradise.
The 22-year-old P-plater was given his marching orders after he was charged with high-range drink driving on Wednesday night.
It’s alleged the rising star got behind the wheel of a Holden Cruise after a midweek binge and proceeded to drive the wrong way down Orchid Avenue where he was stopped by police.

The Bulletin reports the young gun allegedly recorded a blood-alcohol level of 0.193 – almost four times the legal limit.
He was further charged with failing to display his P plate and disobeying a no entry direction.
His provisional license was automatically suspended and he will appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on July 3.
The club released a statement on Thursday afternoon, confirming the incident.
“The NRL’s Integrity Unit has been advised of the offence and the club will continue to work closely with the NRL as the matter is further investigated,” the statement said.
“No other comment will be provided at this stage.”
