Celtic maul Caley Thistle

The 25-year-old is accused of assaulting Elvis impersonator Anthony Bradley, 42, at a nightclub in his home town last year.

Dublin District Court heard he was arrested -- by arrangement -- on Chancery Street in Dublin on Thursday afternoon.

The footballer was officially charged at 1:55pm with assault causing harm, under section three of the Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person Act 1997.

The alleged incident happened at Buck Whaley's nightclub on Lesson Street in the Irish capital on June 8 last year.

Garda Noel Gibbons, of Pearse Street Garda station, gave evidence at the brief hearing of the arrest, charge and caution. Stokes made no reply to the charge, the officer told the court.

The Irish police officer agreed with Stokes' solicitor Michael Staines that the footballer had co-operated with the arrest and charge. Judge Michael Walsh remanded Stokes on bail, with no conditions, on his own bond of 1000 euros.

He has been ordered to appear again before the court on May 29, while Judge Walsh asked Stokes to hand over details of his mobile phone to prosecuting authorities.

Stokes has scored 11 goals in 37 appearances for Neil Lennon's side this season as the Bhoys sit top of the Scottish Premiership by 21 points after 28 games.
