Fallen AFL premiership player Ben Cousins has cried in a Perth court as a magistrate denied him bail over new drug and family violence charges.

The 40-year-old was arrested on Tuesday evening during a disturbance at a Canning Vale house and was later allegedly found with 13 grams of methylamphetamine.

Cousins faces 16 charges including aggravated burglary, aggravated stalking and possessing a prohibited drug with intent to sell or supply.

The former West Coast Eagles captain, who has no fixed address, appeared in Armadale Magistrates Court on Wednesday looking dishevelled.

In a lengthy and emotional rant to the magistrate, Cousins applied for bail against the advice of his lawyer, Michael Tudori, but was refused.
