He was then arrested and taken to Kings Cross police station where he was given an infringement notice for failing to leave a licensed premises.

Pearce has also been banned from Kings Cross for 48 hours.

Pearce is considered a certainty for NSW at halfback. He was a leading player in the Roosters premiership success last season and starred for the side in their 30-6 win against the Wests Tigers on Friday night

The Sydney Roosters have fined halfback Mitchell Pearce $20,000 and stood him down from Saturday's match with the Cowboys in Townsville after completing their internal investigation into the events that led to the star playmaker being issued with an infringement notice for failure to quit a licensed premises in the early hours of last Sunday morning.

The Roosters' action leaves the door wide open for Pearce to remain a part of the Blues' Origin plans, with the star expected to be named when the New South Wales side is announced next Tuesday.

Pearce's Roosters and Blues teammate Boyd Cordner - who accompanied the Pearce throughout the evening - was also hit with a $5000 fine for his role in what the Roosters determined was a breach of club and NRL standards.

Half of Cordner's penalty was suspended but he will be forced to pay the balance should he re-offend.

The Roosters' investigation was concluded in consultation with the NRL Integrity Unit; meanwhile, NSW Police have concluded their investigation and determined that no further police action will be taken.

Announcing the club's sanctions, Roosters Chief Operating Officer Football, Brian Canavan, said Pearce would sit out one game and donate his fine to charity. Additionally, he would be required to undertake a strict counselling program.

“The club is most disappointed with the events of the weekend. The club and NRL have strong policies in place and there is a process that has had to run its course,” Canavan said.

“Mitchell and Boyd have accepted the club sanctions and shown genuine remorse for the negative spotlight both have attracted to the Roosters and the game by breaching the club’s and NRL’s standards.

“Both are important contributors to our club, and the game, and we will continue to work closely with them to ensure their continued personal development off the field.”

Didn't George Burgess rip out a street sign and throw it through a car window?

 

Knights player gets sacked, Georgy Boy gets nothing. Bloody Souths and their cover-ups.

It wasn't the first time Tets stuffed up this year, he had an AVO put on him by his ex a couple of months ago.

John Elias arrested at the Bridge hotel at Rozelle yesterday for possession of a cocaine hotshot(whatever that is) and for trying to bribe a policeman.I think,but not sure,that a heroin hotshot killed John Belushi.....are they the same things except with different substances?Given that Ryan Tandy unfortunately died in mysterious circumstances,and he was tied up with Elias and others including Sam Ayoub in the betting scandal,my mind cannot help but wonder if there is some connection.Elias has always mixed with very very dubious criminal characters.

Elias had Tandy murdered to stop him from squealing.

I'm enjoying this 'anything goes'. I don't agree with making it a racial thing, but I do despise the pathetic piece of shit for turning to crime instead of earning a legitimate living like the rest of us.
