Wales rugby star Andy Powell in golf buggy arrest

Wales rugby star Andy Powell has been arrested for allegedly taking and driving away a golf buggy, hours after his team’s dramatic win over Scotland.

The Cardiff Blues player was arrested with another man at 0600 GMT on Sunday at Cardiff West services off junction 33 of the M4 in the Vale of Glamorgan.

One of the two arrested men failed a breath test, South Wales Police said. But the BBC does not know which of the men this was.

No charges have yet been brought.

A police spokesman confirmed two 28-year-old men from Brecon were arrested and that investigations are ongoing.

He said: “South Wales Police can confirm that two 28-year-old males from the Brecon area were arrested on suspicion of taking and driving away a golf buggy.

“One of those males subsequently failed a breath test.”

It is understood the golf buggy was taken from the Vale Hotel, Golf and Spa Resort, where the Wales team were stayed before and after the Scotland game at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday.

However, a spokesman for the hotel said they could not comment as a police investigation was ongoing.

The Welsh Rugby Union (WRU) has been asked to comment.

Brecon-born rugby flanker Powell, 28, has won 14 caps for Wales and toured with the British Lions squad to South Africa.

The forward plays regional rugby for Cardiff Blues, after joining from the Llanelli Scarlets in 2005. He has also played for Beziers, Leicester and Newport.

Cardiff Blues said it was a matter for the Wales team.

>> Update 22:00 14th Feb: According to BBC Powell has been charged with Drink-Driving

Mr Powell’s agent told the BBC the player was “very sorry and embarrassed about what happened”.
