Australia winger James O'Connor was embroiled in more controversy Thursday after reportedly being prevented from taking a flight because he was intoxicated.
In the latest in a string of incidents involving the Wallaby star, the Australian Rugby Union said it was investigating what happened at Perth International airport early Sunday.
"While ARU had not received any formal notification, complaints or reports from police, airline or security officials, ARU began an investigation into the alleged incident," a statement said. "The investigation is ongoing."
