He is due to appear in Lithgow local court on November 22
Australia captain Greg Inglis has been charged with drink-driving just hours after being given the honour of leading the national team.
The South Sydney Rabbitohs back was named the Kangaroos’ skipper for the end-of-season Tests with New Zealand and Tonga on Monday.
However, later that day Inglis was accused of exceeding the speed limit before giving a positive breath analysis reading.
New South Wales Police confirmed a 31-year-old man from Coogee was arrested and taken to Lithgow police station.
He had been playing at a tournament in Dubbo, New South Wales before being stopped by police.
A New South Wales Police spokesperson said: “Officers attached to the traffic and highway patrol command were conducting stationary speed enforcement when they detected a black Mercedes Benz travelling above the speed limit.”
