The ex-partner of former AFL star Ben Cousins has been accused of driving under the influence of illicit drugs and will face a Perth court later this month.
Maylea Tinecheff, who has two young children with 40-year-old Cousins, was charged with driving with an illicit drug in her oral fluid or blood and having no authority to drive.
She was stopped by police in her BMW on Ranford Road in Canning Vale on August 24 and allegedly tested positive for illicit drugs in a preliminary roadside test.

It has been reported the pair's two young kids were in the car at the time Tinecheff was stopped.
Cousins was charged with a string of offences, including breaching a family violence order, on August 21 in Canning Vale after his ex-partner made a statement to police.
Tinecheff will appear in Armadale Magistrates Court on October 30.
