Bachelorette’s Charlie Newling In Scuffle With Pub Security
Charlie Newling was all the talk during his time on Ali Oetjen’s season of The Bachelorette, and it seems that he’s continuing to stay in the headlines even after being booted from the show.
And no, this time it’s not because of his non-relationship with fellow Bachie alum Dasha Gaivoronski.
This time Charlie is making news because of a video that has surfaced of him from out at a pub over the weekend.
The Bachelorette’s Charlie Newling In Violent Scuffle With Security At Sydney Pub
Pretty shocking footage has surfaced of the 31-year-old being involved in a violent scuffle with security guards outside a pub in Sydney.
During the video, Charlie can be seen being wrestled to the ground by the bouncers at the Golden Sheaf on Saturday night after he was allegedly denied re-entry into the venue.
Charlie can be seen attempting to resist as several men drag him from the pub in Double Bay at around 10:50pm. At one point, one security guard can be seen placing Charlie in a chokehold after he is brought down to the ground.
The footage can be viewed here.
“He wrestled with three security (guards) for ages and was completely kicking off,” said an eyewitness to the Daily Mail Australia.
“They took him down and put him in a headlock,” continued the source. “[Charlie] lay there for ages until an ambulance rocked up, then the police came shortly after and it was all done.”
Daily Mail Australia allegedly approached Charlie for comment and he told them that he had been celebrating his dumping from the reality TV dating show just two days prior at The Golden Sheaf pub.
He explained that he had left the venue with a female but attempted to head back inside when he realised he had forgotten his mobile phone and keys.
Charlie claimed that he had been left with a bruised throat and arm after the physical confrontation with security.
“I pulled [the exit door] and the security slammed it shut and my arm was trapped. It was crushing me. I then had [security] on top of me.
“I couldn’t order an Uber without my phone and needed my keys from inside. The police came and held me for an hour and a half while reviewing CCTV footage and then let me go as I’d done nothing wrong.”
The Bachelorette evictee said that he was eventually let go after authorities deemed he was innocent. He said that the manager from the pub “apologised” to him afterwards.
A spokesperson for The Sheaf also told Daily Mail Australia that they didn’t wish to comment on this specific incident.
“We’d like to thank the Rose Bay Police, our security team and the Ambo’s for their help, professionalism and guidance last weekend. For the benefit of our guests we don’t like to comment on specific incidents,” the statement said.
