A judicial source says the New Zealand player was drunk at the time of his arrest


Former All Blacks lock Alexander ‘Ali’ Williams has been fined 1,500 euros by a court in Paris for purchasing cocaine.

Police accused the 35-year-old of buying 2.4 grams of the drug in February. Former Wallabies winger James O’Connor, who plays for Toulon, was also arrested and charged with possession; and subsequently suspended by his club over the incident.

Williams’ club Parisian side Racing 92 says he’ll be sacked over the incident

I made a big mistake and I’m sorry. I feel I've let down our beloved rugby community. I will face the consequences. Thanks 4 all the support
