According to SBS, Bulut was involved in an argument with a staff member who allegedly asked him and three other members of his group to leave the premises.
The report claims the group became agitated after being forced to leave and asked the said staff member to take the argument to the outside car park.
The incident was revealed in the hours after the Wanderers’ 3-2 win over Melbourne City on Wednesday.
Reports suggest Bulut was not directly involved in the verbal altercation, but was charged on one count of intimidation.
He was granted bail and will appear in court on April 7.
Wanderers boss Tony Popovic said Bulut was stood down from yesterday’s game due to the incident.
“I was made aware this afternoon there was an incident and he was stood down from the game due to that incident,” Popovic is quoted as saying by SBS.
“Now it’s with the club and the authorities and the FFA, it’s in their hands.
“That’s all I can tell you.”
It’s not the first time Bulut has been in trouble with the law, after the Australian youth international was charged with gang-related crimes in 2010.
