Harlequins and England scrum-half Danny Care has been arrested over allegations of a sexual assault on a woman, according to a BBC report.

Care, who has already been arrested several times in the recent past, for various offences, was taken into police custody on 4 March outside a hotel in Leeds, after just being warned for causing a nuisance under the influence of alcohol.

"Danny Care was asked to report to West Yorkshire Police in Leeds to answer further questions about the incident that took place in the city on 3 March. On 15 March Danny attended Leeds Police Station voluntarily by appointment to assist the police with their inquiries," the Daily Mail quoted a Harlequins spokesman as saying.

However, Care, who is being fully backed by the Harlequins, denied all allegations.

"He denies the allegations made against him. Harlequins are fully aware of all the facts and will continue to support Danny as he addresses this situation," the spokesman added.

Care, who earlier faced a 16-month driving ban along with a £3,100 fine following his DUI (driving under influence) arrest, has released on bail until further enquires.

Meanwhile, England coach Stuart Lancaster has cautioned Care that he could risk losing his international career if he continued with his current attitude and behaviour.

"I'll be meeting him as soon as possible about the decisions he's making and how it's affecting his chances of coming back and playing for England. We need to do that to make sure we rebuild the trust," The Guardian quoted Lancaster as saying.
