Brothers to be tried after fracas outside club

Two brothers, who were arrested over the weekend, have admitted to fighting outside a nightclub in Devonshire.

Police said they were called to the brawl near the Gravity Nightclub on Saturday around 3am. Officers arrived to find the fight spilling out into the road.

A Police spokesman said: “The crowd was hostile and were pulling the suspects away from police, who had to muscle their way through.”

A taser and Captor spray were used. The two men were arrested, along with a woman, who was later released.

The men were treated for minor injuries and then taken into police custody.

Kevin Lambert, 20, and Keino Lambert, 19, appeared yesterday in Magistrates' Court before Senior Magistrate Archibald Warner.

Both pleaded guilty to taking part in a fight, but the eldest brother denied violently resisting one officer during his arrest.

Keino Lambert was also charged with violently resisting another officer and assaulting a police officer while in execution of his duty. He pleaded not guilty to both those charges.

The two were bailed for $1,000 with one surety each and will appear for trial on February 14 at 9.30am.
