Yep, Stokes arrested in Bristol in the early hours of Monday morning, Hales 'helping police with their investigations'.

What a tit Stokes can be...

I would not want to comment sub judice, but this could be a bit of a game changer for the Ashes!

No idea, but Stokes was retained overnight according to the BBC report, so nothing trivial.

Key sentences from the police statement:

"We were called to a disorder in Queens Road, Clifton, at around 2.35am on Monday [25 September].

"A 27-year-old man was found to have suffered facial injuries and was taken to the Bristol Royal Infirmary for treatment.

"A 26-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of causing actual bodily harm and has since been released under investigation.

(Stokes assumed to be the 26 year old in question)

I think Marlon Samuels is a tad older than 26 so I'm assuming he wasn't present

Idiots the pair of them. Strip him of the vice captaincy and give it to Anderson now

I wonder how close Hales was to making the squad before this incident. I suspect it cost him his place..
Call for TKC..

I'm not sure there is any evidence or suspicion that Hales did anything wrong other than being out with a man who was arrested. He hadn't been arrested and went back voluntarily presumably to defend Stokes.

Elsewhere I have heard unofficial rumours that Stokes may actually have been acting in self defence so let's not jump to conclusions.

Whether it's appropriate for internationals to be in night clubs at 2.30am is a separate issue and reaction may deo he on whether it breaches any curfew on the team

Apparently no curfew so certainly not clear that that Hales has done anything he shouldn't have.

Reports that Stokes was out til 3AM during the Old Trafford Test, which certainly does not seem like the professional preparation you would want from your vice captain...
