The RFU said: “In light of his conviction for common assault and resisting arrest, Danny Cipriani has been charged with conduct prejudicial to the interests of the game contrary to RFU Rule 5.12.”

RFU Head of Discipline David Barnes said: “We have high standards that we expect across the game, in line with rugby’s core values, from all those involved within it. I have this afternoon taken the decision to charge Danny Cipriani.”

Cipriani’s hearing in front of an independent disciplinary panel will take place next week with date, time and panel members to be confirmed.

The 30-year-old had pleaded guilty to resisting arrest and assaulting a bouncer after a spat outside The Little Drift nightclub in St Helier.

Cipriani became verbally and physically abusive and pushed the doorman after he turned on his body camera.

The pair tussled outside the venue and the doorman called the cops following the incident at 1am on Wednesday.

Cipriani then grabbed a female officer by the collar as she tried to arrest him and shouted "get the f*** off me".

She fell to the ground when he tried to wriggle out of handcuffs and the officer was left with a bruised neck.
