Dan O’Connor in Fight at Logies After Party

danCrown security staff have marred the after-party fun at Channel 10’s Logie celebrations, with the network lodging a formal complaint over an incident with former Neighbours star Dan O’Connor.

As the star-studded festivities wound down about 3.30am, O’Connor and a small group of friends were refused re-entry for the last dance, despite being warmly welcomed by Ten’s publicity and security teams.

In an explosive encounter which threatened to repeat the physical altercation between casino staff and Dieter Brummer at Nine’s party in 2011, a lead security guard outside Crown Promenade’s Tonic bar is alleged to have angrily abused Ten staff and turned his enormous size on both guests and other security personnel.

The guard, along with two junior guards, terrified onlookers who came to a shocked O’Connor’s defence – standing between the guards and the actor musician and his mates.

After frantic calls to Crown security executives, about six senior casino staff rushed to the scene to defuse tensions.

It was a disappointing black spot on an otherwise joyous celebration for Ten, toasting Asher Keddie’s two silver Logies for its returning drama series, Offspring.
