'No Excuses' - Dan Carter Releases Statement Following Drink Driving Reports

'No Excuses' - Dan Carter Releases Statement Following Drink Driving Reports

French press reported last night that Dan Carter had been tested on the side of a Parisian road in the 17th arrondissement and was found to have 0.8 grams of alcohol per litre of blood. That's 0.3 grams over the French limit.

Carter confirmed the reports on his Facebook page earlier this morning.

I am sure a lot of you have seen the headlines. No excuses - I made a massive error of judgment and have let down my club, my fans and most importantly my family.

I will have to now let the police/court process run its course and face the consequences. I am just glad no one was harmed. Sorry.

The out-half was not arrested or detained for the incident. The standard fine if found guilty of drink driving in France is €4,500 and six penalty points with the potential of a jail sentence if it's a more serious incident.

Racing have had a poor year. Their defence of the Top 14 title sees them currently lie eighth in the table, 13 points off La Rochelle, and they were humbled by Munster and Glasgow in Pool One of the Champions Cup, a competition they were runners-up in last season.
