English rugby outhalf Danny Cipriani has been arrested and charged by police after reportedly attacking a police officer at a nightclub. The news was confirmed by his club, Gloucester Rugby, on Wednesday.
A statement from Jersey Police confirmed that the 30-year-old has been charged with five offences. These include common assault and assault on police.
This morning 30 year old Daniel Cipriani was charged with common assault, larceny, assault on police, resisting arrest and disorderly on licensed premises. He has been remanded in custody until a court appearance at magistrates court at 10am tomorrow.
Cipriani only joined Gloucester this summer after leaving Wasps. He was in Jersey as part of the club’s pre-season preparations.
Eddie Jones recently recalled the flyhalf to the England squad and played him during the summer South Africa test after a ten-year absence, although he had been warned about his conduct after numerous off-field incidents earlier in his career.
