I rather suspect he will be deported from the country for such bad behaviour. What type of visa does he have at the moment?

He has a student visa, but he also has a job. he has been in the country for 2 years, these incidents always seem to be drink related.

You should have posted your question in the Australia law forum. For that reason I have asked the site moderator to ensure that you are transferred to that section.

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
