France
Byron Kelleher charged with drink-driving
October 19, 2013

Byron Kelleher faces a court appearance in France for allegedly drink-driving while four times over the legal limit.

The former All Blacks scrum-half, 36, was stopped in Bordeaux at 9am on Friday (local time) after going the wrong way on a one-way street, French media reported. He initially refused to be tested and was taken to a police station, where he had a test that showed an alcohol level of two grams per litre of blood.

A police source said that Kelleher, who left the station in the afternoon, would be summonsed to appear in court.

Kelleher made 57 Test appearances for New Zealand between 1999 and 2007. He then moved to France, where he played for Toulouse and Stade Francais before retiring at the end of last season.
