The brother of WA soccer star Josh Risdon has been released on bail following a violent brawl outside a Bunbury pub that left a 43-year-old man clinging to life. Ryan Norman Risdon, 29, appeared in Bunbury Magistrate’s Court today after he was arrested and charged with grievous bodily harm on Sunday. Police will allege the Glen Iris local and a 43-year-old man became involved in an altercation in which “both men fell to the ground” — leaving the older man with life-threatening head injuries. While sitting in the dock, a visibly nervous Mr Risdon exchanged several glances with his partner and family who sat in the public gallery supporting him. Mr Risdon only spoke to confirm he had lived in the South West “all my life” and that he understood the current charge. The court heard Mr Risdon was attending the Prince of Wales Hotel and drinking with two friends on the evening of May 15 — with police saying they were well-behaved at the time. The victim was also at the same venue with his wife and work colleagues watching a band perform — but he had been asked to leave after getting into a verbal argument with security, the court heard. Police say that as Mr Risdon left with his friends to go to The Rose Hotel, the victim and his wife were walking a short distance in front of the trio. It was alleged by police that CCTV footage showed the victim striking Mr Risdon twice to the head with a clenched fist as he walked past the couple, prompting them to get into a physical altercation where they both fell to the ground. It was further alleged the victim hit has head on the pavement and Mr Risdon allegedly punched the victim in the jaw when the altercation ended. After onlookers managed to separate the pair, emergency services were called. One of several witnesses outside the pub at the time said she saw a man on the ground with bystanders trying to give him CPR, as others were crying and calling for an ambulance. He was rushed to Bunbury Regional Hospital, with police saying it was unlikely he would recover from his injuries. Magistrate Benjamin Tyers said Mr Risdon was facing the prospect of the charge being upgraded, and along with Mr Risdon’s “clean criminal history”, granted him bail with stringent conditions. Those include not being allowed to enter licenced premises, surrendering his passport, not being allowed to leave WA and daily reporting to police. The bail also included a $50,000 undertaking and a $30,000 surety. Mr Risdon is next due to appear on May 24.
