Alex Salmond, the former first minister of Scotland, has been arrested by police and will appear in court on Thursday afternoon.
Salmond has been under investigation by Police Scotland following a confidential investigation by the Scottish government into allegations by two women that he sexually harassed them several years ago. The Scottish government sent their final report to police in August last year.
A Police Scotland spokesman said: “We can confirm a 64-year-old man has been arrested and charged and a report has been sent to the procurator fiscal.”

The Guardian says: "It is not yet clear what charges he faces or when he will appear in court." BBC has similar. I am not sure how you got he was arrested for allegations of sexual assault.
It could be far worse ...just imagine if wee Jimmy Krankie had also come forward with accusations ....that would really turn the stomach . Fortunately she wasn't and then rest is history.
I know it’s not the time or plaice to say this, but I hope he gets a fair herring.
Will any of this spill over into the wider SNP?
Do we know if it is a single or multiple accusers?

Figuring out a way to bad mouth the prosecution on TV and maybe bribe a judge or two would be more his style.
How long before he claims this is all a witch hunt because he appears regularly on RT? Will the latter drop his show? Or perhaps give him even more airtime.
RT have run the story and, as usual, have left the resident HYS staff to generate conspiracy theories, create obfuscation and generally discredit Western news coverage and the Liberal-Democratic statutory machine.
Nicola Spungeon has seen the scales fall and has given up trying to pour oil on troubled waters.
Some say there is no smoked Salmond without a fire. Still, RT have taken the bait. Seems like the ex-politician will soon be poached.
