All Blacks loose forward Jerome Kaino has been charged with drink driving after a minor motor vehicle accident, the New Zealand Rugby Union (NZRU) said.

Kaino, 25, was involved in a nose-to-tail accident in Auckland on Friday morning and after being breath-tested by police attending the scene, was found to be over the legal limit.

Kaino was subsequently processed at Balmoral police station and is to appear before in court on July 14.

All Blacks manager Darren Shand said that the NZRU would consider a potential misconduct hearing after the legal process was completed.

"We'll wait for the police and the courts to deal with this case and then consider additional action as Jerome's employer," Shand said.

"We will be very disappointed if in fact Jerome was driving under the influence.

"Drinking and driving is not acceptable behaviour."

Shand said Kaino would assemble with the All Blacks for the next two weeks as scheduled.
