TORQUAY United midfielder Joss Labadie has been charged with misconduct by the FA, over an alleged bite in the Gulls' clash against Chesterfield last month.
Labadie has been given until 6pm on Thursday to respond to the charge, which is believed to relate to an allegation of biting.
A statement from the FA said: "It is alleged that the player's behaviour in or around the 49th minute of this fixture constituted violent conduct."
No official complaint has been made by Chesterfield, and Torquay United manager Chris Hargreaves said after the game he was not aware of any such incident taking place.
However, should Labadie be found guilty of such an offence, he could face a lengthy ban.
