Coyne met Peter Beattie, president of the Australian Rugby League Commission, on Saturday and submitted his resignation.

& # 39; I'm a little devastated … He was one of my best Commissioners. & # 39; Mr. Beattie told the ABC.

In a statement confirming his resignation, Coyne said he did not want the controversy to be a burden to the ARLC or rugby in general.

& # 39; Again, I deeply regret what happened in Singapore and my delayed reporting of it & # 39 ;, was the statement.

& # 39; After considering the past few days, I have decided to continue to focus now and in the future on supporting coaching and developing rugby league players in my junior club, where my true passion lies. & # 39;

Coyne was on a & # 39; boy trip & # 39; had been in Singapore when he was arrested in the early hours of June 2 in the chic Orchard Road district of Singapore after not producing his passport.

On Thursday, Coyne emailed broadcaster Alan Jones to explain his actions.

& # 39; May I say in advance how embarrassed and ashamed I am about my behavior & # 39 ;, is the email.

Coyne further explains that he had been to Singapore with friends when he realized that he had drunk too much & # 39 ;.

He got into a taxi and after a & # 39; misunderstanding & # 39; the driver called the police.

& # 39; Because I didn't have my passport with me, the police said I was considered an illegal immigrant, & # 39; said Coyne.
