Wayne Carey insists he did NOTHING wrong when a bag of white powder fell out of his pocket onto a casino table – and reveals why he’s disappointed,” while pointing out a mental health battle
AFL legend Wayne Carey said he wanted to know why police weren’t called to the Crown Casino when he was kicked out for carrying a bag of white powder.
Carey was ejected from Perth’s Crown Casino last Thursday after a ziplock bag of unidentified white powder fell from his pocket onto a gaming table.
He was later removed from his room and banned from all Crown venues for two years.
Carey said the whole situation could have been avoided if Crown employees had called the police.
“On two occasions they had the opportunity to call the police,” he told reporters Thursday ahead of a men’s mental health event in Wagga Wagga.
“If what was claimed had happened, the police should have been called immediately.

“They had another opportunity when I went to my room to call the police and they never called the police.
‘I want to know why, because if they had called the police I wouldn’t be standing here talking to you about it.
“If it had happened, the police would have been called.”
Carey also confirmed that he had offered to give the powder bag to security.
He claims the bag contained crushed anti-inflammatory medication, which he takes for pain and has with dinner.
