Aussie detained after Bali brawl

An Australian man has been detained in Bali after a drunken brawl broke out at an infamous nightclub on Tuesday night.

Michael Gregory, 37, of Wollongong in NSW, allegedly flew into a rage after drinking heavily at Seminyak's La Favela nightclub where he went "berserk" before shouting and kicking on the street.

It is claimed that as the fight between tourists moved outside of the club, Franklin trashed several motorbikes on the street.
