Dual premiership player David King has been charged with drink driving.

King was involved in a minor car accident on Wednesday morning, where he recorded a blood alcohol reading of 0.10, twice the legal limit.

No one was injured in the accident.

“After having some end of season drinks, I made a terrible decision to drive and was involved in a minor incident with another vehicle. I was subsequently charged with driving under the influence recording an alcohol reading of 0.10,” King said in a statement published on Fox Footy.

“I deeply regret my poor choice to get behind the wheel and am embarrassed and ashamed of my actions, I am thankful no one was injured.

“I’ve not only let myself down but more importantly my family, friends, workplace and the public who I put at risk.

“I accept full responsibility and any repercussions which result from this."

Fox Footy said they do not condone King's behaviour, and will leave the matter with the judicial system.

“We are aware David King was recently charged with driving under the influence of alcohol. FOX FOOTY does not condone this behaviour and takes the matter very seriously. We know David deeply regrets his actions,” they wrote.

“The matter now sits with the judicial system.”
