Vinnie Jones accused of assaulting neighbour
The former Wales skipper was arrested last month near his home at Redbourn, Hertfordshire, just before midnight on 11 November.
Jones, 32, appeared at St Albans magistrates' court dressed in a smart dark suit.
He was charged with assaulting 27-year-old Timothy Gear and of causing criminal damage to a kitchen window and the door of a mobile home near his 60-acre farm.
During the seven-minute hearing, Jones, who sat next to his solicitor, spoke only to confirm his name and address. His wife Tanya watched from the public gallery. The case was adjourned until 7 January.
Jones, his wife and his advisers left the court declining to comment on the charges.
Jones is a controversial player who has a reputation for being one of the hard man of football. He has clashed with the authorities on a number of occasions and been fined by the Football Association for presenting a video on foul play.
On the plus side, however, his commitment to the cause and under-rated skills have been talismanic for a number of clubs.
Apart from Wimbledon, Leeds, Chelsea, and Sheffield United have all benefited from his presence in their ranks.
