Todd Carney drunk, charged again

Todd Carney Goulburn ChargedTroubled Canberra half Todd Carney is in hot water yet again, this time being charged by authorities over an alleged car damaging rampage in Goulburn last week.

It seems Carney is still struggling with his bad-boy ways, this time video cameras apparently recording Carney allegedly jumping on vehicles in the Goulburn area in the company of another male.

Carney along with the additional male were arrested and charged over the alleged incident and will face the courts in April.

Police reviewed the video footage closely before making the arrests.

The latest incident comes just a week before Carney was due to play for Atherton Roosters in the Cairns and District rugby league competition in an attempt to save his career.

The latest drama surrounding Carney will surely scare off any NRL club that was chasing him for next year, while these allegations are yet to be proven in court – the former Canberra half seems to find himself in these situations all too often, something fans and sponsors would not want to see.

Carney has turned to bush football in 2009, with his contract with the Raiders torn up and the NRL refusing to register him for this season. After initially signing with Huddersfield under Nathan Brown, Carney was refused a visa on the grounds of his previous drink driving offences.

The NRL it seems is vindicated in refusing to register Carney for this season as the talented yet troubled player has many mountains to climb yet.
