Six people were taken to hospital following a violent disturbance at an Upper Coomera tavern this morning.
Preliminary information indicates that police were called to a Brygon Creek Road establishment around 1.20am following reports that a group of up to nine men were involved in a brawl in the public bar.
Five men were treated at hospital for a range of injuries including serious lacerations, bruises, as well as head and facial injuries. It is believed one man was knocked unconscious, and two others will require surgery to lacerations, including a man who was struck in the face with a glass. All injuries are believed to be non life threatening.
