FA charges QPR over China brawl
Queens Park Rangers
The Football Association has charged QPR with misconduct after a friendly match against the China's Olympic team on 7 February ended in a brawl.

Assistant boss Richard Hill, who has been suspended by the club until further notice, has been charged with violent conduct.

The club issued a statement stating that "an internal investigation into the matter continues".

The brawl left China player Zheng Tao with a broken jaw.

Hill and the club have until 12 March to respond to the FA charges.

The club have been charged with failing "to ensure that its players and/or officials conducted themselves in an orderly fashion and refraining from violent and/or threatening and/or provocative behaviour."

Two days after the incident, a 43-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm.

The man was "bailed to return on a date in March to a west London police station pending further enquiries," according to a statement from the Metropolitan Police.
