Brentwood: Footballer Charged With Police Assault
A Premier League footballer has been charged with assaulting a police officer outside a nightclub in Brentwood.
West Ham defender James Tomkins was arrested after officers were called to the Sugar Hut shortly before 12.30am yesterday (Sunday 22 December).
Police were alerted by security staff at the venue, which has regularly featured on the ITV2 series The Only Way Is Essex.
An Essex Police spokesman said: "Officers arrived and arrested James Tomkins before charging him with one count of assaulting a police officer, one count of resisting arrest and one count of being drunk and disorderly in a public place.''
Tomkins, a former England Under-21 international who appeared for Team GB at the Olympics last year, had played for West Ham hours before the incident in their 3-1 defeat to Manchester United at Old Trafford.
The 24-year-old from Brentwood has been released on police bail and will appear at Basildon Magistrates' Court on 9 January.
Two men have been jailed for a total of 40 years after an aggravated burglary in Essex, where a man was shot.
Anyone with information about an assault on a man in Chelmsford a month ago, which left him with serious head injuries, is being asked to come forward.
