Bircham, 42, was apprehended by police in St Petersburg, Florida.

And his bail was set at $10,000 by the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office – around £8,200.

The Sheriff’s Office’s Subject Charge Report describes the offence as “BATTERY; AGG (DEADLY WPN/GREAT BODILY HARM)”.

If carrying a deadly weapon, aggravated battery constitutes a second-degree felony in the state of Florida – which could lead to a sentence of as many as 15 years in prison.

The Londoner, who was capped 19 times by Canada after qualifying through a grandparent, represented the R’s for five years between 2002 and 2007.

Since hanging up his boots in 2009, he has held a number of coaching roles – including as caretaker manager at Loftus Road for one game alongside Kevin Gallen that same year.
