Former All Black Ali Williams and Australian international James O’Connor were arrested in Paris on Saturday for cocaine possession, police said.
LCI.fr report that the pair were spotted trying to allegedly buy cocaine by plain-clothes police officers in the early hours of Saturday morning outside a nightclub near the Place Charles de Gaulle around 03:00.
According to the report, Williams, 35, and O’Connor, 26, were allegedly spotted handing over 200 euros to two suspected dealers in exchange for cocaine.
Williams was then spotted at the time of the arrest allegedly trying to throw the three packets of cocaine away, which were picked up by investigators.
Both players were then taken into police custody.
This comes just one week after another former All Black playing for Racing was busted by police, with Dan Carter caught drink driving, also by the Champs Elysees.
