An Illawarra man was detained by police in Bali after a brawl broke out at a popular night spot.
Mick Franklin is accused of being involved in an altercation with other tourists at Seminyak's La Favela nightclub. He was removed by security guards when the brawl moved out onto the street where multiple parked motorbikes were allegedly damaged.
The Civil Police said Mr Franklin was subdued and taken to Seminyak Police Station station at 3.30am on Wednesday. Indonesian Civil Service Police held him for several hours before he was taken back to his hotel.
Friends of Mr Franklin, a 37-year-old personal trainer, told the Mercury he was devastated by the incident and refutes all allegations.
Bali newspapers detailed the behaviour of the "tourist" who was "drunk" and "making a fuss", however there were no reports made to police of property damage and no charges have been laid.
The Department of Foreign Affairs has been contacted for comment.
