Ben Stokes under fire over the shocking brawl incident has said that he will offer his explanation of what happened in Bristol on the night when he was arrested. In the wake of the developments, Stokes has been withdrawn from the Ashes squad.
According to a report in ESPNcricinfo, he has apologised to British celebrity Katie Price, after being filmed what appears like mocking her disabled son Harvey.
Meanwhile, Stokes agent, former England batsman Neil Fairbrother told ESPNcricinfo that the player retains full support of the company.
"Ben explained to me the full circumstances of what happened in Bristol and I told him that he has my total support and backing," said Fairbrother in a statement, reported ESPNcricinfo. "I am aware that he has fully cooperated with the police inquiry and voluntarily provided a detailed statement on the same day as the incident. He will continue to assist the police in any way he can.
"Ben will also make public his full explanation and evidence when the time is right. On legal advice, that is not possible whilst the investigation continues and no charges have been brought forward. Ben does not wish to prejudice the process.
