Ipswich Town's Paul Taylor charged after pub brawl
An Ipswich Town footballer and two other people have been charged following a brawl in a town centre pub.
Ipswich striker Paul Taylor, 25, who lives in Rendlesham, is charged with assault causing grievous bodily harm.
He is due to appear before magistrates later this month alongside another man and a woman.
A 30-year-old man had an eye socket and fingers broken at the Robert Ransome pub in Ipswich in October and another man suffered a broken rib and cut head.
Olatunde Ademuyiwa, 24, of Beechway in Liverpool, has been charged with causing GBH and assault by beating and Jodie Twitchett, 24, of Ashton Close, Rendlesham, Suffolk, is charged with assault by beating.
All three have been released on bail until their appearance at South East Suffolk Magistrates Court on 18 March.
Mr Taylor has been out of the Ipswich Town squad since breaking a foot during the 2-0 defeat at home to Wolves on 19 September.
He has played just three times since completing his move from fellow Championship side Peterborough United in August.
