ADELAIDE has suspended Patrick Wilson for the first two rounds of the AFL season after the midfielder was caught drink driving.
Wilson must also pay a $2500 fine to be donated to charity, as well as participate in education and community programs.
Crows head of football Brett Burton said the club was extremely disappointed in Wilson’s actions but would stick by the 24-year-old.
“It is a serious breach of the standards we set for our players, coaches and staff both on and off the field, and importantly the expectations of the wider community,” Burton said.
“Paddy is obviously regretful of his actions, has taken full responsibility, and the club will provide him with the necessary support and further education.”
Wilson, who made his AFL debut against Hawthorn in Round 13 last year after being drafted as a mature-age recruit from Sturt, is expected to front court in March.
