MELBOURNE, Australia (AP) — Four men have been charged over a violent brawl last month between fans of A-League football clubs the Melbourne Victory and Western Sydney Wanderers.
At least four people were injured as supporter groups used metal bars, sticks and chairs as weapons in the brawl outside a Melbourne hotel before the A-League match between the teams on Dec. 28.
Police said two men aged 19, one aged 32 and another, 44, were charged Monday and bailed to appear in court in May. While all have been charged for taking part in the brawl, further charges are expected including conduct endangering serious injury, discharging a flare and throwing or discharging a missile.
Police said their investigations are continuing.
