Former Scotland captain Stuart Hogg arrested and charged by police


Former Scotland captain Stuart Hogg has been arrested and charged following an incident in his hometown of Hawick over the weekend, police have confirmed.

Scottish Borders-based officers were called at around 17:20 on Sunday afternoon following reports of a disturbance.

The former Exeter Chiefs fullback was taken to Hawick police station where he was charged and later released on the condition that he attend Jedburgh sheriff court at a later date.

A Police Scotland spokesman told the BBC that a report outlining any alleged offences will be submitted to the procurator fiscal.

Reports claim that the arrest occurred outside his family home where his ex-wife and four children live, adding that Hogg has previously refused to move out of the home despite their split last year.

Hogg called time on his rugby career last July, retiring as Scotland’s record international try-scorer with 27 and 100 Test caps to his name, having also been capped by the British and Irish Lions.
