    Parramatta Eels recruit Tony Williams fronted court on Wednesday after being charged with mid-range drink driving before Christmas.

    The club had informed the NRL of Williams's driving indiscretion and will wait until the matter is resolved before deciding on a potential course of action.

    NRL.com has been told Williams immediately rang the club after being pulled over at a random breath test operation during the holidays, and he was remorseful for his mistake.

    The matter was adjourned until next month, with the 29-year-old forward later returning to Parramatta's pre-season camp on the Central Coast.

    The Eels released a statement on the incident: ''Parramatta National Rugby League Club (PNRL) player Tony Williams appeared in court yesterday regarding a drink driving incident that took place last month.

    ''Tony did make the club aware of the situation immediately and the NRL Integrity Unit was informed as per our normal process. The matter was adjourned in court until February 14 to allow Tony to complete a safe driving course.

    ''Once the legal process has been completed the club will work with Tony and his management on the relevant next steps. The club will not make any further comment until the legal proceedings are concluded.''

    An NRL spokesman confirmed the integrity unit had been made aware of the situation and was monitoring it closely.

    The former Manly Warringah Sea Eagles, Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Cronulla Sharks player has returned to his junior club on a one-year deal looking to make the most of what he believes is his last chance in the NRL.

    In an interview with NRL.com in Alice Springs last month, Williams spoke about the regrets he had throughout his career and admitted he was surprised Eels coach Brad Arthur was willing to hand him a lifeline.

    "I'm surprised he took me in," Williams said last month.

    ''The last couple of years haven't been my best and I've been injured most of the time. I think I've played something like close to 30 games in three years.

    ''It was a big risk for him. And I'm grateful he's willing to take the risk with me. I'm willing to pay back his faith. I think he's confident that he will get me there. I think we had a bond in that way.

    ''I'm lucky enough that I have done what I did in the past. I think they based it on what I did in the past. If anyone can get me back I believe Brad Arthur will get me there."

    He was charged with this before christmas.

    Can probably plead not guilty on the basis of diminshed mental responsibility.

    Tony has avoided getting a real job a lot longer than he should have lol. He can retire on what he stole from us alone now though.

    PARRAMATTA Eels recruit Tony Williams has been fined $1000 and had his licence suspended for 12 months by a Sydney magistrate for being “shockingly intoxicated” while driving with three children in the car.

    The 29-year-old former NSW State of Origin and Kangaroos representative was sentenced at Parramatta Local Court on Wednesday for mid-range drink driving in December.

    Magistrate Jennifer Giles said Williams’s driving had been so dangerous members of the public had called the police.

    Poor guy. He's obviously not right in the head at the moment. Hopefully he gets the support he needs and gets through the next 12 months. This doesn't have to define him.

    I get where your coming from Habs.... but I say he needs a big Fkn uppercut. It’s one thing getting charged DUI on your own but with his kids in the car? WTF? No sympathy from me.

    His wife came to pick him up about midnight and he angrily took the keys and drove away with his wife and children — aged four, one and three months — in the car.
