The poor run of off-field drama continues for theÂ Brisbane Broncos, with star halfback and NSW Origin Rep Peter Wallace arrested and charged after an incident at a Sunshine Coast hotel on Sunday night.
23 year old Wallace wasÂ also apparently hurtÂ in a run-inÂ with security after it’s alleged he refused toÂ leave O’Malley’s Irish pub at Mooloolaba shortly after 12am. It was apparently a birthday celebration for Peter Wallace, that got way out of hand for the young NRL star.
Wallace, was carted off to Maroochydore police station, where an ambulance was eventuallyÂ called for his injuries. He was then taken to Nambour hospital before leaving later that night.
He is due to appear in Maroochydore Magistrates Court on November 14 charged with disorderly behaviour and failing to leave a licensed premises.
The incident continues a horror run for the Broncos of late. Apart from off-field dramas, the Broncos face a new frontier with long term coach Wayne Bennett leaving this year and new face Ivan Henjack taking over.
Three other Broncos players remain under investigation for sexual assault following an incident in a Brisbane nightclub toilet.
In a separate incident during September’sÂ finals series, captain Darren Lockyer allegedly manhandled a bar manager during a drunken night on the town.
