According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Meehan and Jovano Faingaanuku forced a man up against a wall at around 2.30am.
Meehan then allegedly headbutted the man before Faingaanuku stole his watch, CCTV footage reportedly shows.
The NRL Integrity Unit has been informed of the incident and Meehan is expected to be suspended while the investigation continues.
According to the report, police arrested both men and took them to Newtown police station where Meehan was charged robbery and assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
The 19-year-old was granted conditional bail and is expected to appear in court on May 6.
It’s not the first time Meehan has found himself in hot water.
