Home » England’s Vunipola fined after arrest in Majorca

England number eight Billy Vunipola has been fined 240 euros (£205) following an incident in Majorca on Sunday in which he was arrested.

Sport understands the 31-year-old was Tasered by police in the early hours of Sunday morning in Palma, the capital of the Spanish island, and subsequently charged with “resisting the law”.

While the police investigation is now closed, Saracens, Vunipola’s club, say they will deal with the matter “internally”.

Vunipola says the incident was an “unfortunate misunderstanding” and he will cooperate with Saracens’ internal investigation.

“Contrary to media reports, there was no violence, no fight and I did not threaten anybody at any stage, with bottles or chairs or anything else,” said Vunipola.

Vunipola has paid the fine and says he “unreservedly apologises” to those involved.

He will fly back to the UK on Monday.

Vunipola has played for England on 75 occasions, with his last cap coming in the World Cup semi-final defeat by South Africa in 2023.

The former Wasps number eight was a second-half substitute for Saracens during their 15-12 victory against Bath on Friday night.

Saracens, who are second in the Gallagher Premiership, are not scheduled to play again until 11 May when they take on Bristol.
