Even if you are a national sporting hero, it doesn't mean you are not going to run the wrath of bouncers if you have had one too many beers.

Fast bowler Ryan Harris was celebrating Australia's Ashes win in Perth on Tuesday night but seemingly ran into trouble late in the night.

Harris posted this message on Twitter at about 3:30 a.m. local time, which was picked up by the Daily Telegraph.

"Ryano" apologised on Wednesday after arriving in Melbourne, according to the Herald Sun.

Obviously I made a silly mistake this morning and I tweeted something I probably shouldn't have. It was a silly thing to do - they let me in in the end, so they did the right thing. But they have to do their job and they were doing it. As I've heard many times before, don't tweet when you've had a drink.

There was no chance of fellow seamer Peter Siddle encountering similar problems—he is now teetotal.
