Man charged over chair leg attack

`A 19-year-old man has been charged over an attack in which another young man had a chair leg embedded in his brain in a fight outside a Melbourne nightclub.

Police said the man turned himself in yesterday.

The victim, also 19, was injured during a gang fight on Sunday morning outside the Metro nightclub on Bourke Street in the CBD.

The 1.9cm-wide metal chair leg pierced his left eye and became embedded in his brain.

Firefighters had to cut away part of the chair before the man, from suburban Northcote, could be treated.’
