The mercurial 30-year-old utility back - who had revived his global career in June with a first start for over a decade against South Africa - also pleaded guilty to resisting arrest during the incident late on Wednesday which took place on his club Gloucester's pre-season training camp on the island.

Danny Cipriani has been charged with assaulting police during an incident at a nightclub.

The 30-year-old England fly-half appeared at the Channel Island's Magistrates Court in St Helier on Thursday morning, where he was fined £2,000 and ordered to pay £250 in compensation to a female Police officer who was left with bruising after the early-hours incident outside a bar on Wednesday.

The charges of assault of a police officer, larceny and disorderly behaviour have been dropped.

Gloucester Rugby have come to the defence of star flyhalf Danny Cipriani following his court appearance in Jersey this morning.

Cipriani was arrested in the early hours of Wednesday morning after the incident in The Royal Yacht Hotel and Spa, St Helier.

The White House said on Tuesday President Donald Trump was frustrated that Turkey had not released Brunson. The sanctions have sent the Turkish lira into a tailspin.

Following his return for England, Cipriani vowed to "do everything I can" to remain in the global set-up.

He had been on the island with his club during a pre-season tour.

Cipriani signed for Gloucester earlier this year after a successful spell with their rivals Wasps which had sparked both a nomination for Premiership player of the season and a surprise recall to the national squad.

"The club will be issuing no further comment at this time but will make a further announcement in due course", the statement added.

He recently returned to the worldwide fold during England's tour of South Africa, but this latest incident will not please head coach Eddie Jones.
