Henson charged with disorderly conduct

Henson who is a new father at 25 has been summonsed to appear before Cardiff magistrates accused of disorderly conduct.

The Ospreys centre and three of his friends will be prosecuted over allegations of drunken behaviour on a train from London to Cardiff eight days ago after the Ospreys beat Harlequins.

Henson’s friends have been named as Jamie Mark Griffiths, 26, David Norman, 33, both from Bridgend, and Matthew Rhys Williams, 25, from Wick, Vale of Glamorgan.

British Transport Police (BTP)issued a statement which said: “Four men are to be prosecuted for public order offences following a disturbance on the 1937 First Great Western London Paddington to Cardiff train on the evening of Sunday, 2 December.

“At 9.25pm on 2 December, BTP officers at Cardiff Central responded to a call to a group of men causing a disturbance on the train.”

Eye witnesses reported that they saw Henson playing a kind of dare game where Henson would punch them in the face if they could not drink one and a half beers.

Henson is out injured after breaking his hand that night.

No court date has been set but it is likely to be in January.

It’s been a bad weekend for Welsh Rugby players after two other players, Rhys Thomas and Rhodri Gomer-Davies are currently sitting in an Italian jail after they were arrested after a fracas at a nightclub in that city.
