“We have seen this footage for the first time tonight -- when posted by The Sun," said the England and Wales Cricket Board.
"There is an ongoing police investigation, which will look at all available evidence, and we do have to respect that process."
He was suspended from England's series-clinching ODI win against West Indies at The Oval after injuring his arm in the brawl and being arrested in the early hours of Monday morning.
His arrest followed England's win in the third ODI in the southwestern city of Bristol on Sunday.
