James Segeyaro has been caught drink driving in Brisbane on Monday.
The Broncos recruit blew a blood alcohol level under 0.05 when pulled over by police but is on his P Plates and therefore cannot have a reading above zero.
He is understood to have been driving to buy a coffee on Monday morning after drinking on Sunday night.
“The Brisbane Broncos can confirm that James Segeyaro has been issued with a notice to appear for driving under the influence of alcohol,” the Broncos said in a statement.
“Segeyaro recorded a breath test reading well under 0.05 in Brisbane this morning, but due to the fact he is on a Provisional Licence he has been issued with a notice to appear. The NRL Integrity Unit has been informed and the club is working through the issue in conjunction with them.”
Segeyaro only recently joined the club, having spent the majority of the season playing for Cronulla’s feeder club, the Newtown Jets.
