Former AFL Player Ben Cousins Reportedly Arrested For Breaching A VRO

Former AFL premiership player and Brownlow Medalist Ben Cousins has reportedly been arrested by police in suburban Perth, in what’s the latest of a string of run-ins with the law for the troubled former player.
It’s understood WA Police arrested Cousins on Tuesday night in Canning Vale, and took him into custody for allegedly breaching a violent restraining order. He was held in custody overnight, and remains under police guard today.
It’s expected that Cousins will appear before the Armadale Magistrates Court later today.

Cousins was apprehended by police back in October, again from a property in Canning Vale, and was charged with two counts of breaching a VRO, as well as one count of possessing methamphetamine.

He was due to face court in late November to have those charges heard, but a Perth magistrate granted him bail after no-showing the date and being involved in a car crash that left him hospitalised for 48 hours.
The VRO reportedly relates to his former partner, who is the mother of his two children.
Cousins, who retired from the AFL in 2010, has endured well-documented struggles with drug abuse, and has been arrested by police on multiple occasions.
