NRL Star David Fifita Walks Free From Bali Prison After 'Peace Agreement'
Brisbane NRL star David Fifita has been released from prison in Bali and is expected to return to Australia after three days behind bars.
The holidaying 19-year-old allegedly hit a Bali nightclub security guard, who later withdrew his complaint after reaching a so-called "peace agreement" with the Broncos' forward.
Fifita had been in custody since Saturday and, facing a suspension and fine, is due to be interviewed by the NRL's integrity unit on his return to Brisbane.
He walked free from prison on Monday afternoon after securing his release a few hours earlier.
Fifita's lawyer said his client "doesn't remember" much of the incident, while the Broncos flew welfare officer Adam Walsh to the scene to help to resolve the issue.
Walsh was on hand to help finalise his release.
"He is free; his release papers have been signed," Fifita's lawyer Muhammad Rifan told The Sydney Morning Herald.
It's understood the pair hope to catch the afternoon flight out of Bali and land in Brisbane on Monday night.
The security guard said he wasn't seeking compensation and, after accepting an apology, reportedly signed the agreement on Sunday.
The incident comes a fortnight after Fifita had captained a Junior Kangaroos team to a win over France in Wollongong.
Set to enter the final year of his contract with Brisbane, Fifita is widely considered the hottest free agent available for the 2021 season and reportedly the target of $1 million season offers.
