It’s seems little more than sad that Ben Cousins, a champion footballer, and from what I’ve seen first hand, a nice bloke, has been arrested by police today. Just why he’s been arrested is not clear at this stage, but his involvement with prominent Perth identities and a self-confessed problem with substances, would hint at what may have been at the bottom of things.
I for one feel sorry for him. It would seem that his football career is possibly now over and that could potentially leave him with even more problems. I’ve said here before that the West Coast Eagles would have been best to trade him to another club, and they’re very possibly wishing they did just that.
No guessing what’s going to lead the news tonight and what will be all over the front page of the West tomorrow.
Cousins arrested: “WA Police has arrested Ben Cousins after pulling him over in his car, at 10.30am Perth time and searching it in the Perth inner city suburb of Northbridge.”
