The former Home and Away heart-throb allegedly attempted to bite one man, and punched and kicked another in the scuffle at the city's Crown Casino after the actor was turned away from a Logie Awards afterparty in May (11).
Brummer appeared in court in Melbourne on Friday (23Mar12) to face charges of unlawful assault and attempting to commit an indictable offence for allegedly trying to bite the security guard.
However the actor's lawyer, Andrew Dickenson, argued the incident was ""largely a case of self-defence"" as Brummer was being restrained by up to five guards and had his hands tied.
Dickenson asked for the case to be reviewed at a diversion hearing, which allows first-time offenders to escape a conviction by making amends for their actions.
The magistrate granted the request and the diversion hearing will be held on 1 May (12).
