Former AFL star Wayne Carey spotted at regional WA pub after white powder saga at Crown Casino


Controversial former AFL star Wayne Carey has returned to Western Australia after avoiding criminal charges over a bag of white powder at Perth’s Crown Casino.

He was spotted performing at a sporting event on Thursday night at Yours or Mine bar in the state’s southwest region.

Kerry, 51, posed with Donnybrook FC player Luke Skehan, South Bunbury 2016 premiership coach Mark Docking and Bunbury Bulldogs colts coach Troy Hollands.

Barr shared the photo on social media with the caption: “Just a bunch of good guys talking silly! A wonderful night!”

Carey was kicked out of the Crown Casino in September after a ziplock bag containing a white substance fell out of his pocket onto a table in the gaming room.

He was in Perth at the time covering the Fremantle Dockers v Western Bulldogs match for Channel 7.

Carey was subsequently suspended from his media duties for Channel 7 and Triple M Footy.

Triple M has since severed ties with Carey, with Channel 7 not renewing his contract for the next year and Carey not being part of the AFL finals day coverage.

North Melbourne’s dual premiership captain said the powder was a “crushed anti-inflammatory” used to treat football injuries.

Police Commissioner Colonel Blanch said officers should have been called in at the time to deal with the matter.

Crown Resorts chief executive Ciaran Carruthers admitted it should have happened and said the casino’s policy on reporting to the police had since been changed.

Police announced this month that they would not be pressing any criminal charges against Carey over the incident.
