Jessie’s arrest over the weekend came after the star attended a Madness gig on Saturday in Thetford Forest, Suffolk, alongside a new mystery man.
Later in the evening, the actress and her companion were spotted arguing outside a nightclub with police – with Jessie eventually arrested for public disorder.
A police spokesman confirmed that a 50-year-old woman was cautioned after being held on suspicion of assaulting a police officer and drunk and disorderly conduct.
