Karmichael Hunt On Cocaine Charges: Report

Code-hopping Queensland Reds Super Rugby star Karmichael Hunt has reportedly been arrested on charges relating to cocaine.

News Corp say the charges follow an operation by Queensland's Crime and Corruption Commission and he was arrested on Thursday night.

The Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) released a statement on Friday morning which said they had charged four people as part of an investigation into a cocaine trafficking syndicate in southeast Queensland.

Among them was a 28-year-old man from Hendra who was facing four counts of drug supply and is due to appear at the Southport Magistrates Court on March 5.

Hunt was on Thursday named at fullback for the Reds in their match against the Western Force at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday night.

The Reds postponed their pre-match captain's press conference on Friday morning as reports of Hunt's arrest spread.
