Former rugby stars Williams and O'Connor arrested in drugs case


French police say that James O'Connor and Ali Williams, former internationals of Australia and New Zealand respectively, were seen buying cocaine near the Champs Elysees avenue at roughly 3am (2.00am GMT).

O'Connor, 26, plays for southern-based French club Toulon, which hadn't initially commented.

Former Wallabies back James O'Connor also arrested, alongside Ali Williams, after attempting to buy cocaine.

The pair, now playing for French clubs Racing 92 and Toulon respectively, were stopped at around 05:00 outside a night club near the city's Champs Elysees avenue and found to be in possession of two grammes of cocaine, police added.

He made his debut at 18, the second youngest Wallaby in Australian rugby history.

"Destitute of identity papers and strongly alcoholic, the two rugby men were placed in police custody".

FBI Not Expected To Pursue Charges Against Michael Flynn
White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that the "erosion of that trust" over the circumstances surrounding retired Gen. Flynn was acting when he made these calls, and why the White House waited until these reports were public to take action".

Carter also plays for Racing 92, the defending French champions.

Last October two other New Zealanders playing for Racing 92 were cleared of doping charges.

The probe was ordered after the trio tested positive for corticosteroids following last season's domestic Top 14 final.

France's Anti-Doping agency has appealed against the decision and summoned the trio to appear at a hearing, for which no date has yet been fixed.

The arrests come a week after another former All Black, Dan Carter, was forced to apologise after being charged with drink-driving.
