Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood cautioned for assault

Wood's relationship with Ekaterina Ivanova became tabloid fodder

Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood, 62, has been cautioned by police for common assault following an incident in Surrey earlier this month.

The incident took place in Claygate High Street in Esher on 2 December.

It is understood a passer-by dialled 999 as a violent argument took place between Wood and his 21-year-old on-off girlfriend Ekaterina Ivanova.

In a statement issued on his behalf, Wood said: "I am greatly relieved that this matter is resolved."

He added that he would "look forward to 2010 very positively".

In November, the rock star was divorced by his wife Jo on the grounds of his admitted adultery.

Alcohol addiction

The couple, who share two children, split in 2008 after 24 years of marriage.

Although divorce documents, which were made public, did not mention Ivanova by name, their relationship was widely reported.

The Russian former waitress has since spoken of their break-up.

In July 2008, the guitarist was admitted to a rehabilitation centre for help with his long-established alcohol addiction.
