Former NRL player in hot water over bad behaviour

BAD behaviour outside a pub has landed former NRL player Barry Berrigan in hot water.

Berrigan, 38, was given a move-on direction by police after a verbal altercation with security at 11pm on February 22.

The former Broncos hooker and friends became argumentative with police, who ordered Berrigan to leave the area.

After his departure, police were confronted by a woman claiming Berrigan had grabbed her while he was walking along Cunningham St.


He was subsequently arrested by police.

While in custody, Berrigan told arresting officers he was remorseful for his behaviour.

Berrigan did not front Dalby Magistrates Court on Tuesday, but pleaded guilty to being drunk and disorderly in writing.

Magistrate Kay Ryan did not record a conviction and fined him $300.

Barry represented the Brisbane Broncos and Canterbury Bulldogs in 56 professional-grade matches over his 10 year career.

He retired in round two of the 2006 NRL season due to an ongoing neck injury.

Barry and his brother Shaun will represent the Dalby Diehards in the 2014 Toowoomba Rugby League season.
