Brisbane Broncos young gun David Fifita is locked in a Bali jail after reportedly being arrested following a brawl outside a Bali nightclub.
Fifita is holidaying in his off-season and it appears he has found trouble at the same nightclub as Melbourne’s Nelson Asofa-Solomona last month.
Channel 7 is reporting that a statement by Bali police confirms that a foreigner is being detained and has yet to be questioned about the incident.
“Based on the report, police went to the crime scene, asking witnesses and the victim. A bule (foreigner) that was allegedly the perpetrator was arrested,” said Kuta police chief Puta Ika Prabawa.
“The perpetrator was taken to Kuta police station for further investigation.
“The alleged perpetrator could not be interrogated yet as he is still under the influence of alcohol.”
The Broncos are aware of the situation and have an official on their way to Bali.

“The Brisbane Broncos have today been made aware that David Fifita has been detained by authorities in Bali after an alleged incident involving a security guard,” said the Broncos statement.
