Stokes, who is accused of assaulting and injuring an Elvis impersonator in a Dublin nightclub, was released on bail, with no conditions, and ordered to appear again before the court on May 29.

The incident is alleged to have happened on June 8 last year, several hours after an international between Ireland and the Faroe Islands at the Aviva Stadium.

Stokes was first arrested by Gardai (Irish police) and questioned in relation to the incident in August last year. He had been released without charge at the time and a police file was sent to the Director of Public Prosecutions, who decided to prosecute him.

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

The Republic of Ireland striker was officially charged with assault causing harm, under section three of the Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person Act 1997.

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
