Police say he has been charged with common assault, larceny, assault on police, resisting arrest and being disorderly on licensed premises.

He remains in custody and is due to appear at Jersey Magistrates' Court on Thursday morning.

The club said in a statement: "Gloucester Rugby are very aware of an incident involving Danny Cipriani in the early hours of Wednesday morning following an incident at a St Helier nightclub.

"He was arrested and has since been charged.

"He will appear at Jersey Magistrates Court at 10 a.m. tomorrow morning."
