The Sun has revealed further details of Vunipola’s wild night this week – as well as the extraordinary full CCTV footage of him being bolted twice with a Taser.

Shocking footage shows the England international being tackled to the ground by nine cops after laughing at them and slapping one in the face.

Locals in Palma said Vunipola had been boozing with around 20 other burly blokes in a bar called Havanna from around 7:30pm.

Official Saracens statement in full

Saracens can confirm that after an internal investigation, Billy Vunipola will face no further action from the club.

We condemn the behaviour and have warned Billy about his future conduct.

We now look forward to the remainder of the Gallagher Premiership season, and consider this case closed.

The party swiftly moved on at 1am to a neighbouring boozer called LAB, where he told a bouncer he was with his uncle and that he needed to get cash out of an ATM.

Vunipola was then seen making his way to Epic where he spent £100 in a few hours on drinks.

Locals say he downed four amarettos shortly before he started dancing with his top off and refused to put it back on for 20 minutes.

He was said to have been bumping into some of the other 60 revellers and refusing to stop so staff called police.

He was later arrested at 4.30am.

The World Cup star – who has played for England 75 times – was then taken to hospital and strapped to a bed with tape as he was sedated.

The second Epic co-owner Toni Rocha said the rugby player caused problems after arriving at the bar just before 3am on Sunday.

He is said to have “became worse” when he saw police officers arrive on scene.

Toni said: “I heard him insult police and say ‘f*g cops’ at one point and there was another moment where he had his shirt off and hit an officer in the face with the top in his hand as the officer tried to reason with him.

“He laughed the first time they went to taser him, it was like a film, and I heard the words ‘another one’ and the second time round he fell to the ground and the officers immobilised him and put wrist-ties on him.”

The morning after Vunipola was dealt with by a “speedy” trial in the Spanish island’s capital Palma before flying home to Stansted Airport on Monday.

He was fined £205 for resisting the law and a minor crime of wounding.

Court officials in Majorca confirmed on Monday that Vunipola had pleaded guilty at a “speedy trial” to “resisting the law” and “a minor crime of wounding”.

A police officer suffered injuries to his wrist and finger after the rugby player “lunged” at the cop, according to sentencing documents.

Officers responded to a call from security staff at Epic bar in the island’s capital, Palma, who said a “big man” was throwing bottles and bar stools at them, according to the Majorca Daily Bulletin.

Vunipola – said to have been teetotal for nearly two years before this booze bender – apologised in a statement and said he would cooperate with a Saracens internal probe.

He said in a statement: “I can confirm I was involved in an unfortunate misunderstanding when I was leaving a club in Mallorca on Sunday, which got out of hand.

“Contrary to media reports, there was no violence, no fight and I did not threaten anybody at any stage, with bottles or chairs or anything else.”

He was seen in exclusive pictures captured by The Sun touching down in the UK yesterday looking sheepish and walking through the terminal with his hands in his pockets.

The rugby player had a cut above his left knee, similar to a wound that may have been inflicted by one of the police’s taser shots.

Saracens Rugby Club said on Monday that it was “aware of an incident involving Billy Vunipola in Majorca”.

The club added: “We will of course deal with this incident internally, and will not make any further comment until then.”
