Kevin Proctor Melbourne Storm fined drunkThe Melbourne Storm has acted quickly to punish rookie forward Kevin Proctor by the club for engaging in anti-social behaviour last month.

Proctor has been fined $4,000 by the club and ordered to undergo alcohol counselling sessions for his part in a minor incident on the Gold Coast on December 27. The incident up until now has received little if any press, and the Storm are to be applauded for punishing and making the situation public now it’s been dealt with.

Proctor was this morning fined $400 in the Gold Coast Magistrates Court for behaving in a disorderly manner just after Christmas while out and about on the Gold Coast.

No conviction was recorded and Proctor was not required to attend the court hearing in person.

Acting Storm CEO Matt Hanson said the club had acted swiftly in sanctioning Proctor.

“The clear message is that when players are out in public they must act in a manner that is socially responsible,” Hanson said.

“That is a non-negotiable for players and staff when they become a part of this club.

“Kevin understands that and has accepted the sanctions imposed. We are confident that Kevin will learn from this mistake and not place himself at further risk in the future.”
