The charge of affray is made under the Public Order Act 1986 and effectively relates to fighting in public.
It is an triable either-way offence which means it can be heard in either the magistrates' court or the crown court.
It carries a maximum penalty when tried summarily - in the magistrates' court - of a fine or up to six months in prison and when tried on indictment - in the crown court - of up to three years in prison.
