Danny Cipriani pleads guilt


Danny Cipriani pleads guilty, is ordered to pay compensation to female police officer

England and Gloucester flyhalf Danny Cipriani has pleaded guilty to assault at a Jersey court this morning.

Cipriani pleaded guilty to common assault and resisting arrest and was fined £2,000.

He was also ordered to pay a female police officer £250 in compensation arising from the incident at The Royal Yacht Hotel and Spa, St Helier.

Several reports claim Cipriani got into a disagreement with a bouncer after he wanted to bring a drink outside. According to The Sun witnesses heard Cipriani tell officers: “These wrists are gold, loosen the cuffs”.

Glouster Rugby had been carrying out pre-season training with the Jersey Reds on the island.

Last night the club stated: “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. He was arrested and has since been charged by police.”

“The club will be issuing no further comment at this time but will make a further announcement in due course.”

The 30-year-old, who has been capped 16 times for England, having come to the end of his second spell with Wasps at the end of last season.

The former Sale Sharks star returned to the England fold in June, starting the third Test against South Africa, having previously been overlooked for selection for three years.

He also counts Melbourne Rebels and Sale Sharks amongst his former clubs.
