Hawk Lake escapes AFL club punishment
18:10 AEST Mon Jan 14 2013

Hawthorn's new recruit Brian Lake has escaped serious punishment from the AFL club for his drunken weekend escapade which landed him and his wife in police custody.

Lake, the club's high-profile off-season capture from the Western Bulldogs, was locked up on the Mornington Peninsula for being drunk in a public place.

He and wife Shannon spent several hours in custody on Saturday night, and were each fined $563 over the incident.

Lake apologised to his new teammates on Monday, and will now be made to participate in the Hawks' police-in-schools community program.

But he won't face any further sanction from the club.

"I'd like to apologise to everyone involved at the Hawthorn football club - supporters, players and coaches, for my behaviour on the weekend," Lake said in a statement.

"I've been at this club now for three months and I've put my best foot forward in terms of my training and rehabilitation from injury, and I've worked hard to gain the respect of the players and coaches and everyone at the football club, and I see this as a reasonable step back.

"But what I'm looking forward to now is getting back to what I was doing in those previous three months and gaining the respect again from the players and everyone at the football club."

Hawks head of coaching Chris Fagan said the club was disappointed in Lake's conduct.

"We don't expect our players to be in situations like that. We expect this to be a once-off with Brian and we think he's learnt his lesson," Fagan said.
