Waikato - Chiefs captain Sione Lauaki is being investigated by police over an off-field incident.

The Super 14 team made the announcement on Friday regarding Lauaki, who has played 17 Tests for New Zealand, with his career marked by several instances of off-field misbehavior.

"We are currently awaiting for the Hamilton police to decide on what action, if any, they will take on this," Waikato chief executive Gary Dawson said in a statement.

"Until we have further details from the police, we cannot make further comment."

Lauaki took an anger management course last year after being charged with damaging an Auckland motel. In 2006 he assaulted a Hamilton security guard and later punched a rival player after an argument outside a bar.

He missed the Chiefs' first match with injury and is currently serving a two-match suspension for a dangerous tackle against the Lions on February 19.
