Pictured: Ben Stokes battered and having a fag on a night out in Bristol

He was arrested on Monday in Mbargo

England Cricket vice-captain, Ben Stokes, has been pictured having a fag on a night out in Bristol.

The cricketer was arrested in the early hours of Monday morning after an incident at Mbargo left a 27-year-old man with facial injuries.

Stokes was arrested by Avon and Somerset Police outside the nightclub around 2.35am after an alleged assault.

He was held overnight after celebrating the team’s victory with fellow teammate Alex Hales.

The Tab are investigating whether the picture was taken on Monday night, or from a different event.

Due to the arrest, both players were not available for England’s fourth one-day international against the West Indies.

However, the vice-captain has been included in the 16-man Ashes Test squad, which was announced earlier today.
