An Australian man arrested for an alleged drunken rampage in Indonesia has been freed from jail.

Bodhi Mani Risby-Jones, 23, was detained in April after he was accused of assaulting people during a naked rampage near a surf resort on the island of Simeulue, off the coast of Sumatra in Aceh province.

He allegedly chased and struck people in the streets of the island, including a fisherman who was knocked from his motorbike and required dozens of stitches in his leg.

The Queensland surfer had faced up to five years in jail but reached a reported settlement of 250 million rupiah ($25,000) with the fisherman on May 26.

“I’m very very relieved and happy,” Mr Risby-Jones told a news conference on Tuesday following his release.

“I made a fool of myself and it was shown publicly worldwide.”

The Noosa man is expected to return to Australia in coming days.
