Name: Johnathan Thurston
Team: North Queensland Cowboys (National Rugby League)
Charge: Public Nuisance
According to Robyn Ironside of the Herald Sun, North Queensland Cowboys captain Johnathan Thurston was arrested early Thursday (September 16, 2010) morning in Brisbane, Australia.
Thurston, 27, and two other rugby players were ejected from the Treasury Casino around 4 a.m. for disturbing patrons with a walking crutch. They allegedly laughed at police and ignored police requests to stop play wrestling beside a taxi.
Thurston was later released and is due to appear in court on October 6.
