Craig Nicholls of The Vines has been bailed until November on assault charges following an incident involving his parents earlier this week .

The Australian singer has been charged with five offences in total, including domestic assault, after an altercation at his parents' house in Sydney on Saturday (October 13).

It is alleged that Nicholls punched his mother twice in the head and then tried to run away from police. They were forced to use a form of pepper spray to subdue the singer, with one officer reportedly sustaining injuries while trying to arrest him.

Nicholls appeared in court today (October 17) with the judge setting a trial date of November 14 at Sutherland court. Nicholls' parents have taken out an AVO (Apprehended Violence Order) on their son, but the terms of this have been relaxed, meaning Nicolls is no longer banned from the Connells Point area.

The five charges Nicholls will hear in court will be two counts of domestic assault, assault occasioning actual bodily harm, stalking and resisting arrest.

Nicholls, who suffers from Asperger's Syndrome, will also see a psychologist this Friday (October 19).
