Here's the statement from the FA:
"Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has been charged in relation to an incident in his side's game against Hull City on 1 March 2014.
"It is alleged that in the 72nd minute of the fixture, Pardew was involved in an incident with a Hull City player that amounted to improper conduct.
"Due to the serious violent and/or aggressive nature of the reported behaviour this case has been designated as non-standard.
"Pardew has until 6pm on Thursday 6 March 2014 to respond to the charge."
Newcastle fined Pardew 100,000 pounds and there won't be any kind of criminal proceedings since neither David Meyler nor Hull City pressed charges on the head butt...
More analysis of the incident on SkySports even calls for Pardew to be banned from touch lines and training grounds
