Former Australian swimming star Geoff Huegill and his wife, Sara Hills, locked themselves in a disabled toilet in the corporate area of Randwick Racecourse prior to being charged with drug possession on Saturday.
As revealed by The Daily Telegraph online, the couple will appear in court next month after police discovered them with a substance alleged to be cocaine.
It has since been discovered that police attended level four of the grandstand after viewing CCTV footage of Huegill and Hills venturing into a disabled toilet in the vicinity of the Moet Lounge, where they watched the final program of this year’s Autumn Carnival.
The Australian Turf Club’s private security first alerted officers after witnessing their behaviour at the race track.
Police allegedly found the door locked, with Huegill and Hills inside, prior to gaining entry.
NSW Police have confirmed the pair were taken into custody around 5:45pm.
A police spokesman said officers found Huegill and Hill in possession of a “small quantity of white powder, which is believed to cocaine”.
