England and Harlequins scrum half Danny Care has put the future of his rugby career in doubt by being arrested for three third time in three months for an alcohol-related offence.
Care was arrested in the early hours of Sunday in Leeds outside the Queens Hotel after being seen urinating outside the hotel.
The arrest comes after two previous offences for similar alcohol related offences which led to him being dropped from the England squad by coach Stuart Lancaster.
Care was under the influence of alcohol and was arrested for being drunk and disorderly and later accepted a caution.
Speaking after the incident Care said, "After an evening out with friends in the centre of Leeds, after a long time queuing, I was in a taxi home when I got caught short and asked the taxi driver to pull over so I could relieve myself behind a nearby building. "
"The British Transport Police found me doing that and took me to the nearest police station where I was released with a caution.
"I understand the link that will be made to previous offences but, as with my fine in December in Weybridge, the issue is more one of a small bladder than excessive drinking," he told the Daily Mail.
"I am working hard on and off the pitch to overcome my issues and while this is another small setback I will continue to do that."
The Harlequins player was dropped from the England squad in January after he pleaded guilty to drink-driving in the early hours of New Year's Day.
Care was then given a fine of £3,000 and was banned from driving for 16 months.
Harlequins have fined Care on both previous occassions and most recently he was fined £10,000 for the offence.
