    ‘War of the Roses’ brawler seen fighting with up to 30 people at Rosehill Racecourse is banned from drinking for a YEAR but avoids jail

    • Thirty people were in a brawl at Rosehill Racecourse in Sydney in December 
    • Brandon Locke-Walker, 22, pleaded guilty to affray following the wild scuffle 
    • He was banned from drinking alcohol for a year and given corrections order
    • Photos of the brawl went viral after woman used roses to hit Locke-Walker’s head

    A man at the centre of a mass brawl at a Sydney racecourse has been banned from alcohol for a year but avoided jail.

    Brandon Locke-Walker, 22, pleaded guilty to affray on Tuesday after fighting with up to 30 people at the Rosehill Racecourse in Western Sydney in December.

    The melee was dubbed ‘War of the Roses’ with photographers capturing Locke-Walker and several men hurling punches and ripping each other’s clothes.

    The brawl got its name after one woman tried to break up the scuffle by thumping Locke-Walker over the head with a bouquet of roses.

    Locke-Walker faced Parramatta Local Court on Tuesday and was banned from drinking alcohol for a year.

    He was also given a seven-month intensive correction order and will have to undergo 75 hours of community service, the Daily Telegraph reported.

    The court heard the fight kicked off after one of Locke-Walker’s friends made a comment about another reveller’s girlfriend.

    The apprentice metal fitter was then joined by his mates, Bailey Petrie and Matthew Samuel Becker, as they began brawling with Nathan Luke and his father Stephen.

    Hayley Luke, the woman with the roses, attempted to stop the fracas after Locke-Walker threw punches at her father.

    The court heard at the time of the Rosehill scuffle Locke-Walker was on a good behaviour bond for another fight at a pub two years ago in NSW’s Lake Macquarie area.

    His lawyer on Tuesday told the court Locke-Walker had since sought help for his depression and anxiety following the tussle.

    ‘He has the support of his partner and family. One positive that has come out of it is that he has finally taken the steps to seek some mental health treatment,’ he said. 

    Magistrate Jennifer Price said the 22-year-old played an active role in the brawl.

    ‘The concern … is the use of alcohol and misuse of alcohol and responses to situations you find yourself in,’ she said.

    ‘You don’t have a lengthy criminal history but you certainly have a history of a similar nature.’

    Becker and Petrie were earlier each sentenced to 18 months of community service and an $800 fine.

    Nathan Luke was also handed an $800 fine and an intensive corrections order.

    Stephen Luke is yet to be sentenced but was charged with affray.

    1. Brandon intravened after the father was and son was assaulting his mate and brandon even has footage of him trying to push in security to stop the assault and he ran away so then Brandon intravened to help him friend from being 2 outed by father and son also Hayley hit with her high heel and left Hugh lump and spit in the back of Brandon head ,she should have been repramanded as well as it wS her who started the hole situation brong her father and brother back to start the altacation over a wolf whistle. Since the fight Brandon has been staked and threatened and abused on social media and face to face. Brandon is a good boy he went to Hunter sports high for rugby league and played koori knock out and has always worked since leaving school.Every person that knows him sayes he is respectful and polite . The other defendants Hayley have threaten Brandon saying he doesn’t no who they know and that they will get him and then they have constantly threats and abuse from a fake profile on social media .
      Brandon deserves reprimanding but so do the instigators as Brandon and work mates on a work Christmas party but the family could have avoided the situation if they didn’t take things in there own hands
