Melbourne strongly defended Aaron Davey after the AFL player was involved in a weekend incident at a city nightclub.

It is understood to be the same nightclub where Carlton's David Teague was allegedly assaulted a week ago.

In a club statement, Demons chief executive Steve Harris confirmed Davey was present when there was an "altercation".

The incident happened in the early hours of Sunday morning.

"He confirms there were words exchanged when a male patron bumped into or pushed a female member of his party, and a further altercation when the same male patron later pushed two females," Harris said.

"However Aaron is adamant that he tried to play peacemaker and was not personally involved in any assault on anyone.

"The club understands the matter ended when security personnel became involved, and our player was not asked to leave, or subjected to any security questioning."

Harris added Davey would "fully cooperate" with any inquiries and the club saw "no evidence" that the small forward had let himself or the club down.

The Demons boss also said the club did not enforce player curfews and was confident in their common sense.

A week ago, Teague was also at The Next Blue nightclub near Crown Casino when a former AFL player allegedly hit him from behind.
