A teenager who assaulted a man in a Dubbo pub and was involved in an early morning brawl has not been convicted of any crime.
In court documents police said the 19-year-old and the man were dancing in different areas of the dance floor at the Pastoral Hotel when a violent dispute between them took place on February 23.
While the teenager was leaning against a door, the man allegedly punched him in the jaw.
The teenager punched the man and police said a "heated exchange" ensued.

When the man went to the beer garden, the teenager followed him and pushed his head.
The teenager was punched again by the man.
Pub patrons and security staff separated the pair and the teenager was forced to leave the venue.
When the man also left the venue he is alleged to have abused the teenager on Talbragar Street.
The teenager then got involved in an argument with an unknown person and the two taunted each other to fight, court documents revealed.
A group of about 10 people gathered in the street before the man who was involved in the original dispute with the teenager allegedly tried to punch another unknown person from behind.
The teenager then punched the man he first encountered in the pub, according to court documents.
The group of people became involved in a brawl which moved into Carrington Avenue.
During the fight one security guard was punched by the teenager.
The man from the pub also allegedly fell to the ground after being assaulted by an unknown person. He was also kicked by an unknown person while he was on the ground.
Police said more than 100 pub patrons were exposed to the violence and would have been fearful.
In Dubbo Local Court on Wednesday the teenager pleaded guilty to affray and common assault.
His legal representative said "immaturity" and "poor impulse control" contributed to his behaviour.
It was the teenager's first time before a court and he hoped to become a youth worker, the legal representative said.
The police prosecutor said people had a right to enjoy licensed premises without being exposed to violence.
"Members of the community are sick of seeing young men committing acts of alcohol-fuelled violence at licensed premises," he said.
Magistrate Gary Wilson handed the teenager a conditional release order, which requires him to be of good behaviour for 18 months.
No conviction was recorded against him.
The man has pleaded not guilty to affray and assault. He is due to appear in court on September 11.
