Northampton have insisted they will conduct their own investigation after Ben Foden was arrested on suspicion of criminal damage.
The England full-back and a 23-year-old man was detained overnight and subsequently bailed by police after allegedly being involved in an altercation on Sunday night.
The 25-year-old Foden must now report to a police station early next month.
A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Police were called to reports of an altercation in Old Park Lane at approximately 3.30am on Monday, March 28.
"A 25-year-old man has been arrested for criminal damage. A 23-year-old man has been arrested for theft.
"Both were taken to a central London police station and subsequently bailed pending further inquiries to a date in early April."
And Northampton have said they would now be working with all relevant parties.
A statement from the Saints read: "Northampton Saints takes any such allegations very seriously and is conducting its own investigation to ascertain all the facts of the alleged incident.
"The club is working with Ben Foden and his representatives, the Rugby Football Union and Premiership Rugby and will continue to do so during the investigation process.
"Both Northampton Saints and Ben Foden will also continue to co-operate with all the relevant authorities."
