Announcing his arrest in a statement on Wednesday evening, his team said: '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.

English rugby outhalf Danny Cipriani has been arrested and charged by police after reportedly attacking a police officer at a nightclub.

Two other charges - larceny and being disorderly on licensed premises - were dropped.

Cipriani was fined £2,000 and ordered to pay £250 in compensation to a police officer after she was left with a bruised arm and marks on her chin and neck.

"We will deal with it in a robust but balanced way but based purely on the facts", the club added in a statement posted on their website.
