A father and daughter are refusing to comment on an alleged bar brawl involving them and Sharks rugby player Kyle Cooper at the weekend.

Police are investigating cases of assault with intent to cause grevious bodily harm and common assault after the altercation at the Fynnlands bar, the Bluff, shortly before 02:00 on Saturday, KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Lieutenant Nqobile Gwala said.

The Mercury reported that Cooper appeared in the Wentworth Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday and was released on R500 bail.
Cooper allegedly struck 19-year-old Camilla Johannessen after an argument, and was then involved in an altercation with Johannessen’s father Donald in the car park, the paper reported.
Gwala said the father sustained bruises on both arms, his ribs, and a swollen eye. A 27-year-old man was arrested and charged.

Donald Johannessen’s wife Cindy told News24 they were not comfortable speaking to the press.

“We need to speak to our lawyer first because we don’t want to say anything that is going to be turned against us and jeopardise our case,” she said.

Sharks’ Cooper off the hook for bar brawl

Durban - Charges of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm and general assault were on Wednesday withdrawn against Sharks hooker Kyle Cooper.

The rugby player was arrested in March for allegedly assaulting a father and his daughter at a bar on the Bluff.

On Saturday, March 26, he had played the second half against the Crusaders. Early on Sunday, it was alleged, he had punched 19-year-old Camilla Johannessen after a verbal altercation at the Wagon Wheel Saloon in Lighthouse Road.
