Ben Stokes Jailed for Allegedly assaulting man
England vice-captain Ben Stokes was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm after a 27-year-old man was hospitalised during a late-night incident in Bristol.
Stokes was out in the Queens Road area of the city after England’s ODI win over West Indies on Sunday, when a scuffle is understood to have broken out shortly after 2am.
The Avon & Somerset Police have confirmed that “a 27-year-old man suffered facial injuries and was taken to the Bristol Royal Infirmary for treatement.”
Stokes, 26, was then arrested but has since been released under investigation while police continue their enquiries.
It is not the first time that Stokes has been arrested, and he revealed in his autobiography that “spending a night in the cell was the worst time of my life. No question.”
Stokes was released without charge on that occasion for obstructing a police officer after an incident in Cumbria.
