Police have arrested a 28-year old Christchurch man and charged him with breaching suppression orders in the Jesse Ryder assault case.

The charge relates to the publication online of video footage of the two men who have been charged with the assault on Ryder.

Police allege that the man posted video footage that he filmed on a cellphone, in breach of suppression orders issued by the court prohibiting the publication of the names or faces of the men charged.

The man was interviewed by police today after he went to the Christchurch central police station.

He has been charged with one count of breaching a suppression order.

He has been remanded on bail to appear in the Christchurch District Court on April 15.

Detective Sergeant Ash Millen said the arrest could serve as a deterrent to people who may have downloaded, accessed or distributed the video in question, or were considering doing so.
