According to Fairfax Media, Cousins turned himself in on Thursday morning after a warrant for his arrest was issued after he failed to appear on Wednesday.
The Brownlow Medal winner had until 4pm Wednesday to provide a written explanation for his no-show, but a warrant for his arrest was issued at 3.45pm.
Cousins’ lawyer Aidan Kraus told the courts his client had a prior medical appointment which meant he could not appear in court.
Kraus reportedly had a copy of the appointment on a phone, but it was not accepted by the Magistrate Steven Malley.
Cousins was due to appear in court on charges of failing to stop and provide a breath test.
Police allege Cousins drove erratically in Mosman Park last month and refused to provide a breath analysis to officers.
In the weeks following the incident, Cousins reportedly was found inside a secure perimeter of SAS barracks in Swanbourne.
He was again detained by police in Canning Vale following reports of a man driving erratically in the area.
