    FFS Dan! ..........(Dan Carter DUI)

    From Dan Carter's Facebook page..

    "I am sure a lot of you have seen the headlines. No excuses - I made a massive error of judgment and have let down my club, my fans and most importantly my family. I will have to now let the police/court process run its course and face the consequences. I am just glad no one was harmed. Sorry."

    Former New Zealand fly-half Dan Carter has apologised for "a massive error of judgement" after reports he was stopped for drink-driving by police in Paris.

    Three times a World Player of the Year, the 34-year-old plays for Racing 92 in the French capital.

    The AFP news agency cited a police source as saying he was found to be over the limit after a roadside test, but was not arrested or detained.

    "I've let down my club, fans and most importantly my family," Carter said.

    He added in a Facebook post: "I am sure a lot of you have seen the headlines. No excuses.

    "I will have to now let the police/court process run its course and face the consequences. I am just glad no one was harmed. Sorry."

    Carter is regarded as one of the sport's finest fly-halves and was a World Cup winner with the All Blacks in 2011 and 2015.
    He was as lame as a duck. Not the metaphorical lame duck either, but a real duck that was actually lame. Maybe from stepping on a land mine or something.

    He's been unlucky. Reportedly at .8 - he'd have passed a breathalyzer in the UK. He's had about 2 pints. Silly boy though, given the limits in Europe.

        .8 of a mg per 100ml of breath?

        or what measurement?

        Is the limit in the UK still 35mg/100ml for Breath.

          35mg breath, 80mg blood. If he's 80mg breath then he's been very foolish indeed.

            Oh jaysus don't take that from what I was saying at all.

            I've no idea about Dan's case. I was just wondering about what you had read - about how they had put it.

              I wasn't - tell his lawyers you said nathin :-)

              They didn't specify in the report I read.

                      3 pints. Or 4 if you promise to eat before you leave the pub.

                            Course ya can. You know when you have that first pint, 20 minutes later you're in at the urinal, sure that's the first one gone.

                              Anyway, driving is a motor skill, you can't forget it. Never had a bar man take my shoes off me and tell me i'm not fit to tie my laces either.
