All Black legend Ali Williams has been arrested in Paris for allegedly possessing cocaine.
British and French media said Williams – a Rugby World Cup winner – was arrested with former Wallabies star James O’Connor.
The pair were reportedly arrested outside a nightclub near the Arc de Triomphe, in central Paris. Williams is based there after coming out of retirement to play for Racing 92 this season.
One News reported that the alleged drug deal took place in the back of a car.
The pair could be held in custody for up to 24 hours.
Under French law they must be released after that point, unless there are specific circumstances which would justify an additional 24 hours, Fairfax reported.
Drug use carries a maximum penalty of one year in prison in France or a €3750 (NZ$5500) fine.
Users can also be ordered to attend drug awareness programmes or to undergo court-ordered therapy.
