The Brexit Party leader raged at his security team after the hipster Corbyn fan slung a salted caramel drink over him in front of jeering bystanders in Newcastle.

Paul Crowther, 32, has today been charged with common assault and criminal damage, cops confirmed.

He will appear at North Tyneside Magistrates Court on June 18.

After the shake was chucked, furious Mr Farage could be heard moaning of his bodyguards' "complete failure" as they whisked him away.

He added: "You could have spotted that a mile away" and "How could this happen?".

The leader told reporters the Five Guys banana and salted caramel shake was "yobbo flavoured" - and he reportedly gave a statement to Northumbria Police.

He later tweeted a picture of him smiling on stage for the Brexit Party with the caption: "Whatever they throw at us, we will never give up."

Mr Farage had earlier dubbed his soaking an "affront to democracy" and tweeted: "Sadly some remainers have become radicalised, to the extent that normal campaigning is becoming impossible.

"For a civilised democracy to work you need the losers consent, politicians not accepting the referendum result have led us to this."

FARAGE DEFENDED

Later he was defended by political opponents including Theresa May and Tony Blair who spoke out against the use of violence.

Members of the public were filmed laughing as Mr Farage was led away after the latest milkshake attack on politicians and public figures.

Former EDL leader Tommy Robinson and Ukip candidate Carl Benjamin were both targeted in recent weeks.

Labour supporter and Remain fanatic Crowther was later seen being led away in handcuffs and put in the back of a police van.

Northumbria Police later confirmed a 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of common assault.
