Footballer Lee Hughes charged
Monday 30 January 2012
Notts County footballer Lee Hughes, who was arrested last month on suspicion of sexual assault, has been charged, his club said today.
The League One striker was arrested after police were called to the team's hotel in Croydon, south London, on December 3.
The 35-year-old was taken into custody following the alleged incident involving a woman the night before his team's FA cup fixture against Sutton United.
A statement on the club's website said: "Notts County can confirm that striker Lee Hughes has, on Monday, been charged in relation to an alleged incident in December of last year.
"The club will be making no further comment on this matter."
Hughes was released on bail after his arrest in December.
The footballer has played for Notts County since 2009 after leaving Oldham Athletic.
He had his contract at the club extended in October by another 18 months.
