CRYSTAL PALACE CAPTAIN Jason Puncheon has been charged with assault and possession of an offensive weapon by police after a late-night incident.

Puncheon was arrested at 02:20GMT on Sunday morning near the Mishiko bar on Church Street, Reigate, where police were called following a report of a fight.

A police spokesperson said: “Jason Puncheon, 31 of Kingswood, has been charged with a Section 4 public order offence – causing fear or provocation of violence, possession of an offensive weapon and common assault.

“He has been released on bail to appear at Guildford Magistrates Court on 5 January.”

Puncheon has made 11 appearances for Palace this season, but has only played 20 minutes in the Premier League across two substitute appearances since September.
