    BRONCOS rugby league player Ian Lacey has been granted bail on an assault charge in Brisbane's CBD.

    Lacey, 22, appeared in Brisbane Magistrates Court this morning charged with assault occasioning grievous bodily harm of a 32-year-old man in Charlotte Street early on Saturday morning.

    It's alleged Lacey and another Broncos forward John Te Reo, chased the man from the Victory Hotel to the corner of Charlotte and Eagle streets about 4.30am (AEST).

    Witnesses reported seeing the man fall to the ground after being struck.

    He has a suspected fractured skull and bleeding on the brain and remains in a Brisbane hospital.
    The incident occurred just hours after the club's annual presentation dinner.

    Police prosecutors did not oppose Lacey's bail, but requested he be banned from contacting Te Reo or the complainant.

    A committal hearing has been set down for January.

    Police are yet to interview Te Reo over his involvement in the incident, and he has reportedly returned to his native New Zealand as part of a pre-planned holiday.

    Outside court, Lacey's solicitor Campbell MacCallum said his client would be fighting the charges and was concerned for the person who had been injured.

    Both have had their contracts terminated for breaching the NRL and Bronco's code of conduct.

    Maybe we should look at picking him up cheap. He's a handy player.

    I wonder if Lacey is related to these two grubs with the same surname?

    Police seek weapon in Lacey case
    September 27, 2007 - 6:09PM

    Police are still searching for the weapon they believe was used by the sons of a Gold Coast millionaire to gun down a 23-year-old labourer, a court was told.

    Jade Michael Lacey, 24, and Dionne Matthew Lacey, 20, of Ephram Island - the sons of milk millionaire Ken Lacey - appeared at a committal hearing in Southport Magistrates Court today charged with the murder and unlawful wounding of Kevin Palmer on May 6 this year.

    Police found Mr Palmer's body in the lounge of a Nerang apartment with two bullet wounds to the chest after responding to triple-O calls reporting the sound of gun shots.

    Lead investigator Detective Sergeant Ian Williamson told the court the murder weapon had not been found despite a tip-off two firearms may have been buried on the Sunshine Coast.

    He said police were also trying to track down a man they believed helped the Lacey brothers dispose of incriminating evidence.

    Sgt Williamson said phone records of several people believed to be part of a group seen running from the murder scene had been investigated.

    Also seized were phone records of the brothers' girlfriends, who had been arrested on suspicion of being an accessary after the fact but never charged.

    Among the records was a text message between Dionne's girlfriend Rebecca Klodinsky and Jade's girlfriend Michelle Luanghoth, which police believed indicates a man had visited Ephram Island where the brothers have an apartment to dispose of evidence.

    Sgt Williamson also testified a resident of the Nerang apartment where the murder occurred, Sammy Sengul, had been frightened of people tracking him down there after ``a drug deal gone bad'' at a Gold Coast hotel.

    The court earlier heard evidence from Mr Palmer's mother, Ilaria Legge, of her son's previous drug taking and struggle with schizophrenia.

    She told the court her son had anger problems and had previously owned a gun because he feared people were after him - both symptoms of his illness.

    But she said her son had stopped using drugs, been prescribed medication and had improved significantly in the 18 months leading up to his death.

    Defence lawyer Kelly Macgroarty questioned Ms Legge over some of Mr Palmer's associates who had allegedly been involved in drugs and other criminal activity.

    But Ms Legge said she had no reason to suspect her son was in any kind of trouble in the lead-up to his death.

    Ken Lacey is expected to be called as a witness for the prosecution.

    The hearing continues.

    Is Sergeant Williamson any relation to our Son of Sam?
