Two men have been arrested after a flare was let off and a steward attacked at a football match.
The arrests followed the Premier League game between Brighton and Hove Albion and Aston Villa at the Amex Stadium on Saturday, Sussex Police said.
A 51-year-old man from Redditch, Worcestershire, has been charged with setting off a flare.
A 28-year-old man from Goring-by-Sea, West Sussex, has been charged with assault by beating.
Both men are due to appear at Brighton Magistrates' Court on 6 February.
