Wallabies star Kurtley Beale is charged and spending the night in the cell for raping him at the hands of Bondi
Wallabies star Kurtley Beale is spending the night behind bars after being charged with raping a woman at a Bondi pub.
The 28-year-old woman was allegedly sexually assaulted in the Beach Road Hotel toilets on December 17.
She then reported the incident to Tweed/Byron Bay Police shortly afterwards, a police statement said.
Beale, 34, who has 95 caps for the Wallabies, was questioned for several hours at Waverley Police Station in Sydney before being charged on Friday night.
“He has been charged with two counts of sexually touching another person without consent, inciting another to sexually touch them without consent and having sexual intercourse without consent,” NSW Police said in a statement.
Beale was denied bail and was dropped off in a NSW Corrective Services van to spend the night in a cell before appearing in Parramatta Bail Court on Saturday.

The woman told police Beale followed her into the pub’s bathroom and then allegedly forced her into a sex act, the Daily Telegraph reported.
It was understood the alleged victim had previously known Beale and acknowledged each other in the pub prior to the alleged attack, but had not met.
The Wallabies star was arrested on Friday afternoon as he was driving through the east Sydney suburb of Kingsford and was intercepted by police.
Beale and his wife Maddie celebrated the birth of their first child just weeks before the alleged attack.
The baby, a boy, was named after winger Kurtley James Windon Beale.
The arrest comes just days after Eddie Jones was named the new Wallabies coach.
Beale was also recently called up to the Wallabies’ extended training squad for the upcoming World Cup.

In December, Beale lifted the lid on his struggles with alcohol.
He revealed how he checked himself into rehab after hitting a rock bottom where he got drunk and fought two teammates.
2013 came just hours after a record-breaking 64-7 loss to the Sharks in South Africa between the playmaker and Melbourne Rebels team-mates Gareth Delve and Cooper Vuna.
Captain Gareth is understood to have asked Delve Beale to put on a shirt before arriving at the team hotel and was verbally abused and assaulted for doing so.
Vuna then intervened, punches were thrown and Beale was flattened.
The 34-year-old now admits he was wrong and deserved whatever punishment he received.
“I checked myself into rehab. It came from the back end of the Rebels when I got into a fight with one of the other players,” Beale revealed in the Stan-produced feature Kurtley: My Story.
“I made myself a bit of a pork chop and absolutely deserved any sanction and anything like that. It was the time when things didn’t go right for me. I had to get help.
“With the support reaching back to my pillars, they pretty much said, ‘Let’s go down that path and try to find yourself a little bit.’ It was pretty tough.

Beale (pictured playing for the Wallabies in 2019) was told he would not be selected for the Wallabies until he completed his time in rehab
“You think you know everything as a little kid, don’t you? You know everything. I always see it as if it’s all learning. It’s a time of growth and I found this time really helpful because it was about reconnecting with my identity that I had lost.
“I didn’t know who I was. If you don’t have that sense of who you are and that connection with yourself, then you lose yourself by not being true to yourself.’
Beale was told he would not be selected for the Wallabies until he completed his time in rehab.
In the end, he was selected to play in the British and Irish Lions series but did not put on his best performance and slipped while executing a crucial penalty.
In 2019, Beale apologized after he was filmed playing a didgeridoo next to a table with white powder on it.
In 2014, he was temporarily suspended by Australia after sending “deeply offensive” messages and images to people including Australian rugby union officials.
Di Patston quit her role as managing director of Australia’s rugby team over the series, which has resulted in two separate incidents.
In the first, Beale accidentally sent her a crude text message about Patston.
After an emotional apology and discussion, Patston agreed to keep the incident a secret as long as Beale treated her better going forward.
Four months later, he yelled at her on a flight, and she resigned before telling ARU about the two incidents.
After a four-hour hearing, he eventually avoided terminating his contract and was fined $45,000.
In 2017, it was revealed that Beale’s wife, Maddi, then his girlfriend, allegedly had an illogical relationship with an AFL executive just before the couple moved overseas.
Ms Blomberg’s relationship with the AFL football operations manager is believed to have happened just weeks before she moved to the UK with her long-term partner Beale.
