A man accused of breaching suppression orders in the Jesse Ryder assault case has been remanded on bail.
Jordan Mason appeared in front of the registrar in the Christchurch District Court today and entered no plea.
He will appear before a judge on April 29.
The 28-year-old was charged after footage of the two men accused of assaulting the cricketer was posted online.
It is alleged Mason captured the footage on a cell phone and then posted it on Facebook, in breach of suppression orders issued by the court which prohibited the publication of the names or faces of the men charged.
Ryder spent two days in an induced coma with head injuries after an incident outside a Christchurch bar.
Mason was interviewed by police last week after he presented himself at the Christchurch Central Police Station.
He has been charged with one count of breaching a suppression order.
Detective Sergeant Ash Millen said police hope that the arrest will serve as a deterrent to anyone who may have downloaded, accessed or distributed the video in question, or are considering doing so.
