The Suns have confirmed Harley Bennell was arrested when New Year's Eve festivities got out of hand in Mandurah

AFTER a breakout year on the field, Gold Coast midfielder Harley Bennell has ended 2012 on a sour note, charged with disorderly behaviour and failing to obey an order given by a police officer during New Year's Eve celebrations in Western Australia.

Bennell was one of several people arrested when fighting broke out in the nightclub district in Mandurah, south of Perth.

He was taken to Mandurah police station and released on bail in the morning.

The Suns have confirmed Bennell was charged and arrested. He will face court in two weeks.

Bennell was a junior footballer in Western Australia before being drafted by the Suns in 2010 with their No.2 pick.

He finished runner-up in the club's best and fairest last year, second to only champion Gary Ablett.

The Suns said in a statement: "As this is a police matter the club is not in a position to make further comment."
