Carlton's Mitch Robinson will complete two months of community service and donate $1000 to charity as part of a club penalty handed to him after his involvement in a fight at the Big Day Out.
In a statement, Carlton said that Robinson became involved in the altercation with a friend ''after initially taking steps to prevent his friend's anti-social behaviour''.
But Carlton's general manager of football operations Andrew McKay said Robinson should not have put himself in a position to be involved in such an incident.

"This type of behaviour, no matter what the circumstance, is not acceptable or in line with club policy," McKay said.
"Mitch is extremely remorseful and has accepted the club's sanction."
Robinson will carry out his community service with the Salvation Army. The $1000 will also go to the Salvation Army.
The incident with Robinson comes just days after Carlton handed Heath Scotland a two-match ban and ordered him to make a $3000 donation to charity after he pleaded guilty to an assault charge stemming from an incident in Mulwala in January last year.
