Neighbours star Dieter Brummer has avoided a criminal conviction following his altercation with security guards at a Logie Awards after-party.

Soap star Brummer, previously a cast member of Home and Away, was originally charged with unlawful assault after kicking out at one of the guards last May.

However, yesterday (May 1) the Melbourne Magistrates Court agreed to place Brummer on a court diversion programme.

Magistrate Jan McLean is quoted by ABC News as saying: "It is slightly unusual for crimes of this sort of violence to be considered appropriate for a diversion plan."

McLean stated that Brummer had been affected by excessive alcohol consumption and said charges would be dropped if he apologised to his victim.

Brummer has also been ordered to make a $500 donation to Mirabel Foundation, a charity supporting orphaned and abandoned children.

The 35-year-old, who has until June 25 to fulfill his conditions, left court without comment.

Brummer recently returned for another guest stint on Neighbours, reprising his role as Ramsay Street's Troy Miller.
