Sport: Samoa 7s star charged

10:32 am on 22 August 2012

Manu Samoa sevens player Afa Aiono has appeared before the District Court on a charge of dangerous driving.

The prosecution requested to withdraw the case because they did not have enough evidence but the judge denied the request, saying this is a serious offence, it is dangerous driving and can affect people lives.

The judge ruled that Aiono will no longer be able to travel overseas for rugby matches unless authorized by the court registrar.

The case has been continued to the 20th of December for a hearing.
