"The police came and held me for an hour and half."

The Bachelorette's Charlie Newling has been filmed getting wrestled to the ground by security guards at Sydney pub The Golden Sheaf on Saturday night after being denied re-entry.

In the video, which you can watch here, the reality star is seen wrestling with a group of staff members and trying to resist being dragged to the ground. 

One of the security guards is seen placing Charlie in a headlock. A witness told Daily Mail:

"He wrestled with three security (guards) for ages and was completely kicking off... They took him down and put him in a headlock."

"[Charlie] lay there for ages until an ambulance rocked up, then the police came shortly after and it was all done."

Daily Mail reports the argument reportedly occurred after Charlie left the venue with a woman and then tried to come back to get his phone and keys.

Charlie told the publication:

"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 half while reviewing the CCTV footage and then let me go as I'd done nothing wrong."

He also added that the manager "apologised" to him after police allegedly said he was innocent. 

A spokesperson for the Golden Sheaf told the Daily Mail:

"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."

Ali Oetjen spoke to Fitzy and Wippa on Wednesday morning about the incident, but she told the boys she had no idea about what had happened, saying: 

"Oh gosh... No I didn't!"

She also added that she hadn't kept in contact with Charlie so didn't know what was happening in his world.
