Have another article about it, will post full if people are interested
Ben Cousins’ lawyer says premiership Eagle has fallen back into drug use as a way of ‘dealing with stress’
"The Brownlow Medallist appeared in Armadale Magistrate’s Court this morning charged with possessing methamphetamine following a night in custody after police allegedly found him asleep in East Victoria Park with a bag containing 2.5g of ice.
Cousins is also facing 13 counts of breaching a violence restraining order and one count of aggravated stalking, allegedly committed between April 2 and 15."
"Mr Tudori said Cousins had contacted a family lawyer. He said Cousins fell back into drug use “whenever there is a crisis” because it was a “comfort”.
Cousins’ lawyer revealed he had fallen back into using meth because it “is the way he deals with stresses in his life”."
"It would be argued that some of the contact fell under the parenting plan in place. But police prosecutors opposed bail, saying Cousins made 43 calls or texts to Ms Tinecheff on April 9, then 29, 12, 31, and 13, on other occasions, all which went unanswered."
