Newcastle and England midfielder Joey Barton has been refused bail and will remain in jail.
Barton had already seen one bail request turned down by magistrates following his arrest in Liverpool last week when he was charged with common assault and affray.
The former Manchester City midfielder is on bail for two other alleged offences.
During the hearing the assault charge against him was upgraded from a Section 39 common assault to a Section 47 assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
It has been alleged Barton and a group of his friends were involved in two separate incidents following a row with another group inside a McDonald’s restaurant in Church Street, Liverpool, last Thursday.
The player’s brother, Andrew Barton, 19, from Widnes, is charged with actual bodily harm and affray and Nadine Wilson, 27, from Huyton, Merseyside, is charged with common assault and affray.
