England rugby star Danny Cipriani has been charged with assaulting police during an incident at a Jersey nightclub.
The fly-half, 30, is also charged with resisting arrest, common assault, larceny, and being disorderly on licensed premises, police said.
He has been remanded in custody and will appear at Jersey Magistrates’ Court on Thursday morning.
His club Gloucester said in a statement: “Gloucester Rugby are aware of an incident involving Danny Cipriani in the early hours of Wednesday morning following an incident at a St Helier nightclub.”
The club confirmed he had been arrested and charged, and that he will be appearing in court.
“The club will be issuing no further comment at this time but will make a further announcement in due course,” the statement added.
A States of Jersey Police spokesman said: “This afternoon 30-year-old Daniel Cipriani was charged with common assault, larceny, assault on police, resisting arrest and disorderly on licensed premises.
“He’s been remanded in custody until his court appearance at the magistrates’ court at 10am tomorrow.
“He was arrested at the early hours of this morning following an incident in Mulcaster Street in St Helier.”
Last week Cipriani vowed to “do everything I can” to remain in the England set-up after making his first Test match start in 10 years.
The incident happened just hours after England cricketer Ben Stokes was cleared of affray following a city centre brawl outside Bristol nightclub Mbargo.
The 27-year-old was recalled to England’s Test squad after he was acquitted of affray by a jury following a trial at Bristol Crown Court on Tuesday.
