AFL suspends Adelaide Crows duo Brad Crouch, Tyson Stengle after drug bust

The AFL confirmed on Saturday the pair had been found guilty of “conduct unbecoming”, following an investigation into the September incident.


Police caught Crouch and Stengle with an illicit drug, understood to be cocaine, in Adelaide’s central business district at 5.15am on 28 September.


In April, the Crows suspended Stengle for four games and fined him $2,500 after he was charged with drink-driving and driving an unregistered car.


Crouch, the Crows’ 2019 club champion, fell off-contract at the end of Adelaide’s season and became a restricted free agent.


Rival clubs including Geelong, Richmond and Port Adelaide are understood to be pitching offers to the 26-year-old midfielder.
