The Bulls have rejected reports stating that a player contracted to the union has been arrested for drunken driving.
A report issued by the South African Press Association alleged that “[a] 35-year-old Blue Bulls rugby player was arrested early on Monday morning when he drove into a police vehicle near the Petroport, north of Pretoria.”
“He was so drunk he could not even stand properly,” police spokesperson Inspector Paul Ramatoko is reported to have said.
Sapa states that he smashed his Audi A4 into the police vehicle, writing it off, while intelligence officers were arresting four would-be robbers.
Speaking to keo.co.za, however, Blue Bulls CEO Stephan Pretorius has said that the individual concerned in the incident has no links to the Blue Bulls whatsoever.
“I can state that the man involved in the accident is not a player or employee of our union. Furthermore he has never played or represented the Blue Bulls in any capacity in the past,” Pretorius said.
