Rehabing Symonds booted out of bar for being too drunk

Melbourne, Mar 23 (ANI): Trouble seems to be never ending for Australian all rounder Andrew Symonds undergoing rehab, who was reportedly asked to leave a Brisbane bar because he was too drunk.

Cricket Australia officials have already given Symonds a last chance warning over previous alcohol-related misdemeanours.

An intoxicated Symonds was reportedly spotted being punted by security at the Watt Bar at the Powerhouse in New Farm, Brisbane, despite Queensland Cricket this morning saying his rehabilitation was on track.

Symonds was celebrating with friends, including Bulls captain Chris Simpson and girlfriend Katie Johnson. The group left without incident, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The request for the group to leave came after Symonds accidentally broke a glass and was stumbling and calling out boisterously to his friends. Symonds also had a drink in each hand at one stage during the night.

It is Symonds fifth off-field incident since August 2008, when he was infamously sent home from Darwin for missing a team meeting.

He slept through a Queensland training session just three weeks into his comeback, and then became embroiled in an incident with a fan at the Normanby Hotel in late November.

In February, he was fined for a six-minute interview with radio station Triple M during which he was under the influence of alcohol.

Symonds has since been having counselling up to three times a week.

A Cricket Australia spokesman thanked the paper for bringing the incident to his attention, but said only that: Andrew continues
