A decision on whether England cricketer Ben Stokes will be charged after an incident outside anightclub will not be made for several weeks at least.
Stokes, 26, was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm after an incident in Bristol on 25th September in which a man suffered a fractured eye socket. He was released under investigation.
Avon and Somerset Police announced on Wednesday it had completed its investigation and sent the findings to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).
Stokes did not fly to Australia with the England squad in October for the current Ashes series.
At that time, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) said the Durham player would not be selected “at this stage.”
On Wednesday, Stokes landed in New Zealand and is expected to play for Canterbury in their domestic competition this weekend.
