Controversy

In 2005, Brad Morrin was involved in an off-field incident. While in a drunken state, Morrin opened the door of a passing car and tried to hitch a lift, alarming the driver. Morrin was detained in a police cell for four hours, which is standard police practice for anyone found intoxicated in a public place.
