Cousins reportedly taken to hospital after an incident with Police

Fallen AFL star Ben Cousins has reportedly been hospitalised after police were called to an incident on a busy West Australian highway.

Seven News Perth reported the former West Coast and Richmond player, who has a history of drug abuse, was in the middle of Canning highway in Como directing traffic.

He was described as being “incoherent”, while a witness said he attempted to jump on the back of someone’s motorcycle, almost causing the driver to lose control.

The network reported police had taken Cousins to Fiona Stanley Hospital for a check-up.
