Aussie Woman Held Over Kuta Brawl
An Australian woman is being questioned by Kuta Police following a drunken brawl at the Kubuki Bar in Poppies Lane I in which an American man received injuries from a broken beer bottle.
Police named the woman as Heather Heyhurst, staying in Bali on a tourist visa. The American, Daniel Best, 40, of Hawaii and also here on a tourist visa, is registered as staying as a tourist at an address on Jl Raya Uluwatu, Jimbaran.
The affray took place about 1am on Sunday, where both Heyhurst and Best had been drinking. Witnesses said it seemed to have been sparked by a misunderstanding.
Police were told the pair had been dancing on the disco floor at the bar but then began to argue and briefly fought. The woman is alleged then to have picked up a beer bottle from a nearby table, broken it on the floor and used it to slash Best.
The fight was broken up by bar patrons and staff, who called police.
