LATEST: Three bouncers from a Bali bar have been arrested over an attack on former North Melbourne coach Dean Laidley and his family.

An officer from the Kuta police station said three security guards from the Bounty Discotheque were in custody over the incident, which Laidley claims was unprovoked.

The officer said police were still investigating at least another three people and wanted to talk to another suspect again.

UPDATE: Dean Laidley says he and his family did nothing to provoke a violent attack from bouncers at a Bali nightclub.

The former North Melbourne coach claims he was glassed outside the Bounty nightclub in Kuta.

Hi son Cane suffered a broken jaw and will enter a Melbourne hospital to have it re-set today.

Two of his cousins have broken noses, Laidley told 3AW.

Up to 12 members of the family were celebrating the recent wedding of Laidley's daughter Brooke when the attack occured.

Laidley has told Neil Mitchell the security guards grabbed the group, including several women, and assaulted them.

He says they were targeted and he believes it was part of a 'set-up'.
