NSW Rookie contracted player Nic Bills arrested

10/09/12 Category: News Posted by:

Cricket NSW has confirmed that NSW Rookie contracted player Nic Bills was arrested on the evening of 17 August 2012 after returning a low-range blood alcohol reading of 0.062 following a random breath test.

Commenting on the incident, Cricket NSW Chief Executive David Gilbert said:

“The matter will be subject to the legal process after which Nic Bills will face a Cricket NSW disciplinary panel to determine his penalty. Nic has expressed deep remorse for his actions.

Cricket NSW’s decade-long delivery of the NSW Government’s road safety initiatives has been highly successful. However this is an extremely disappointing incident and serves as a strong reminder that drivers must think ahead and plan how they will get home if they are going to have a drink.”

Cricket NSW and the NSW Government will continue to work closely to reinforce critical road-safety messages to key target demographics that show males aged between 17 and 39 comprise 64% of drink-drivers involved in fatal accidents.  A number of new initiatives will be launched this summer promoting Transport for NSW’s ‘Plan B’ drink driving campaign through the partnership.
