Jack Tweed has been charged by police over a scuffle outside a nightclub.
The 23-year-old widower of Jade Goody was accused of threatening and abusive behaviour after answering bail at a police station in Ilford, east London.
He will appear alongside his younger brother Lewis Tweed, 20, and friend Mark Wright, 24, at Redbridge Magistrates’ Court next Tuesday.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said they have been charged under section four of the Public Order Act.
Police contacted Jack after a brawl outside Mark’s Deuces Bar and Lounge in Chigwell, Essex, in the early hours of January 3.
Mark, who appeared in reality TV show The Only Way Is Essex, and Lewis were arrested at the scene. Jack was later arrested by appointment.
A 21-year-old builder suffered a black eye and bruised face during the punch-up. He declined medical treatment.
Jack married Big Brother star Jade, 27, shortly before she lost her battle against cervical cancer in March 2009.
