Three men have been charged following a fight at a hotel in St Clair.

Police were called to the hotel on Mamre Road, St Clair, about 5.30pm on Wednesday following reports of a brawl between patrons celebrating ANZAC Day.

Officers attached to St Marys Local Area Command attended and found a group of men fighting in the hotel’s car park.

Police subdued the group before arresting two men, aged 40 and 30.

A short time later police arrested a further two men, aged 24 and 19, after they allegedly refused to leave the hotel and ignored police orders.

It’s alleged one of the men attempted to hit a police officer with a chair, before his friend tried to push the officer away.

The group were all taken to St Marys Police Station.

The 24-year-old was subsequently charged with armed with intent, assault police, and fail to quit.

The 40-year-old was charged with offensive behaviour and failing to quit, while the 30-year-old was charged with affray.

All were bailed to appear at Penrith Local Court next month.

The 19-year-old man is expected to be issued with a future court attendance notice for the offences of hinder police and assault police.
