International forward Tom Vodanovich is mortified to be the latest New Zealand Breakers player caught up in off-court strife and has issued a public apology.
The Kiwi NBL club’s week from hell continued when reports emerged of player drinking and misbehaviour on the team’s flight from Perth to Auckland on Monday.
Police were waiting for the worst-behaved of them, Tall Black Vodanovich, who later said he had no recollection of the flight after taking a sleeping pill in conjunction with alcohol.
A remorseful Vodanovich wasn’t charged by police but Breakers owner Matt Walsh said he would “come down hard” on the player. He had yet to determine the sanction.
