Ben Cousins arrested

Former AFL player in the headlines again just three weeks after TV interview special.

Former AFL player Ben Cousins has been arrested in Perth just three weeks after a tell-all interview with Seven’s Ben Cousins: Coming Clean in which he spoke about the path to recovery.

Nine News Perth reported Cousins was taken to a holding cell after allegedly being found with 2.5 grams of methamphetamine.

The former AFL star was allegedly seen driving erratically near Victoria Park, Perth, and reportedly then became aggravated during his arrest.

In the TV special which screened last month he was attempting to turn his life around, but was vague about the last time he took drugs.

“Last week, last month?,” presenter Basil Zempilas asked.

“Well…you know, not today is enough for me and it should be enough for other people.”

He will face court on Thursday.
