UPDATE: Former West Coast Eagles star, Ben Cousins, has been denied bail following his arrest on Thursday evening and will spend the next two weeks in prison.
Cousins was told by the Judge in court on Friday there are no circumstances which would prevent him from re-offending, thus refusing to grant the troubled Brownlow Medalist bail.
The 38-year-old, who was already due to face court today, was arrested yet again on Thursday night, and charged with breaching a violence restraining order, along with aggravated stalking and being in possession of eight grams of meth.
The drug was allegedly found when Cousins’ car was searched as he arrived at his Melville home yesterday evening.
“Armadale Detectives have charged a man as part of their inquiries into allegations of family violence matters,” police confirmed in a statement on Friday.
“As a result of those inquiries, they executed two search warrants at residences in Melville and Bicton overnight.”
He is also set to face court in June over an outstanding drugs charge.
