Troubled Harlequins scrum-half Danny Care was arrested and cautioned yesterday (Sunday) for a third drink related incident in recent months.

The 25-year-old was dropped for the Six Nations by England caretaker coach Stuart Lancaster after his previous misdemeanour was found urinating against a building by British Transport Police in Leeds.

“After an evening out with friends in the centre of Leeds, after a long time queuing, I was in a taxi home when I got caught short and asked the taxi driver to pull over so I could relieve myself behind a nearby building,” he was quoted as saying in a national newspaper.

“The British Transport Police found me doing that and took me to the nearest police station where I was released with a caution.

“I understand the link that will be made to previous offences but, as with my fine in December in Weybridge, the issue is more one of a small bladder than excessive drinking.

“I am working hard on and off the pitch to overcome my issues and while this is another small setback I will continue to do that.”

Care was fined a total of £3,100 and banned from driving for 16 months after pleading guilty to drink-driving in the early hours of New Year’s Day.

That incident came three weeks after being fined by police for being drunk and disorderly.
