Former AFL star Ben Cousins has reportedly had his parole delayed because of a failed drug test.
After almost six months in jail for repeatedly breaching a violence restraining order against his ex-partner, the 2005 Brownlow medallist was supposed to be eligible for parole in two weeks’ time. It is understood that is now not the case.
Cousins’ lawyer Michael Tudori confirmed on Thursday night the 39-year-old had failed a drug test while on remand but was now drug-free in prison.
