Dieter Brummer assault charge dropped

From WENN.com

The former Home and Away heart-throb allegedly attempted to bite a security guard, and punched and kicked another in a booze-fuelled scuffle at Melbourne's Crown Casino last May (11) after he was turned away from a Logie Awards afterparty.

He faced charges including unlawful assault, but will now avoid conviction after he was placed on a court diversion program following a hearing at Melbourne Magistrates Court this week (beg30Apr12).

On Tuesday (01May12), magistrate Jan McLean agreed for the charges to be dropped if Brummer writes a letter of apology to the victim and makes a $518 (£324) donation to a children's charity called the Mirabel Foundation.

McLean told the 35-year-old star, ""It is slightly unusual for crimes of this sort of violence to be considered appropriate for a diversion plan... (This) seemed like an incident which I trust is out of character for you. Informed by an excess consumption of alcohol, which I trust won't happen again.""

The court diversion program enables first-time offenders to avoid a criminal conviction. Brummer has until 25 June (12) to fulfil the conditions.
