19-year old Lions player Reuben William was caught this morning by a random breath test in Queensland.
William has played 3 senior games for the club but hasn't featured so far in 2017.
The club released the following statement this afternoon:
Brisbane Lions Statement - Reuben William
The Brisbane Lions were today informed by Reuben William that he failed a random breath test this morning while on a scheduled day off for the playing group.
William informed General Manager of Football, David Noble, of the incident shortly after it occurred.
The 19-year-old, driving on a probationary license, was alone in the car when he recorded an alcohol reading of 0.031. Queensland law requires a probationary license holder to have a 0.00 alcohol reading.
William will be required to appear in court in the coming weeks.
The Club will make no further comment at this time.
