FALLEN West Coast superstar Ben Cousins is back in jail after he was refused bail over a raft of new charges involving drugs, erratic behaviour and concerned loved ones.

The now 40-year old former Brownlow medallist and Eagles premiership star – who is now listed as of no-fixed address – was arrested by WA Police on Tuesday evening.

After officers were called to a Canning Vale address, it is alleged Cousins was found in possession of 13 grams of meth – and was later also charged with threats to injure and two allegations of breaching a violence restraining order against his former partner Maylea Tinecheff.

In court, a raft of other charges were laid, included an aggravated stalking charge relating to numerous alleged breaches of VRO over the course of this month.

In the most disturbing of the charges, Cousins is alleged to have threatened Ms Tinecheff while holding a screwdriver earlier this month.
