Dan Carter apologises after reports of drink-driving incident

ormer New Zealand fly-half Dan Carter has apologised for his actions after reports he was stopped for drink-driving by police in Paris.

The 34-year-old, who plays for Racing 92 in the French capital, was stopped on Wednesday night near the Champs Elysees in the centre of the city, reports said.

According to reports Carter was found to be just over the legal limit following a roadside test but was not arrested or detained, although he will be expected to attend a local police station.

He later said in a Facebook post: “I made a massive error of judgement.”

Carter, three times a World Player of the Year, joined Racing after winning his second World Cup with the All Blacks in 2015.

Press Association Sport approached the agency which represents Carter for comment and further information regarding the incident but they were unwilling to provide either.
