Sunderland defender Titus Bramble will appear before magistrates on Thursday charged with two counts of sexual assault.
The 30-year-old is due to appear at Teeside Magistrates' Court this afternoon charged with two counts of sexual assault and one of urinating in a public place following his arrest on 28 September.
He was also arrested on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug, but police confirmed no further action would be taken on that allegation.
On Tuesday, Sunderland lifted Bramble's suspension and the defender returned to training this week ahead of the club's next match, at home to Fulham on Saturday, 19 November.
A club spokesman said: "Sunderland AFC has confirmed that following a full investigation, defender Titus Bramble has been fined and given the maximum sanction permitted for bringing the club's name into disrepute.
"The club can also confirm that the allegation of a drug related offence has been dropped and that he has tested negative for all banned substances, as he has done in all previous drug tests carried out throughout his career.
"Sunderland AFC is unable to comment further at present."
After being charged last month, Cleveland Police said in a statement: "A 30-year-old man from Wynyard has been charged by police with two counts of sexual assault and urinating in a public place and will appear at Teeside Magistrates' Court on 10 November.
"The man was arrested in the early hours of Wednesday 28 September on suspicion of sexual assault and possession of a Class A drug.
"He was re-arrested on suspicion of sexual assault on 14 October after a second allegation was made. He has been released with no further action on suspicion of possession of a Class A drug."
