A man arrested after his alleged involvement in a drunken Highlanders party at a Queenstown rental apartment has been named in court documents.
Zorrho Folomalo Lavea, 24, of Timaru, was to appear before Judge Bernadette Farnan in the Queenstown District Court on Monday to face two charges of wilful damage.
However, he did not appear and was granted a registrar’s adjournment until September 7.
He is charged with intentionally damaging two walls at the Glebe Luxury Apartments and a police Holden station wagon on Saturday.
Highlanders management confirmed they are investigating reports of unruly behaviour involving Highlanders players in Queenstown.
Guests have alleged team members were involved in a drunken party at the Glebe apartment.
The Glebe manager Anne Henley said Highlanders players were not responsible for the damage, which had been paid for.
