Police arrested Jesse Gardiner at Sylvia Street, Dandenong North in Melbourne’s south-east, on Wednesday morning.

It’s alleged Gardiner struck a 25-year-old Essendon man with a digeridoo outside the MCG after the Dreamtime AFL game about 10.40pm.

The victim, Daniel, suffered a fractured skull, broken nose and bloodied eye.

Daniel’s sister said their family has been left shattered.

“I think it will take a long time for Daniel to get over it and have the courage to go out anywhere really,” she said.

More arrests over the assault are anticipated, with multiple men believed to be involved.

Police have advised that Gardiner has since been charged with affray, intentionally causing injury, recklessly causing injury and assault with a weapon.

He has been bailed and will appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on December 9.
