Local officials confirmed he had been detained for the fight but stopped short of announcing his court appearance officially due to strict data protection rules.
But it is understood his name will be appear on a court list later today.
All three will be represented by the same high-flying lawyer flown in from Athens for the case.
The trio spent two nights in a cell before appearing before a court on Saturday in Syros.

They are accused of bodily harm and “serial insult”.
Maguire and a pal are have also been charged with serial bribery and violence against officials.
They deny all the charges against them.
Dad-of-two Joe is also a footballer and played for Scunthorpe United, Nuneaton Town and Boston United before signing for Gainsborough Trinity in 2018.
But he recently left the Northern Premier League club in search of first team football.
Joe has joined Harry and their sister Daisy for a week of partying in Mykonos.
The group leaves court in Syros on Saturday
The brawl erupted outside a swanky nightclub when a man — described by sources as “gangster types” — had started chatting up the star’s younger sister.
And when she turned him down, she was jabbed in the arm – drawing blood and causing her to faint. Harry then stepped in before a fight broke out.
When plain-clothed police came to break it up, the Utd captain was allegedly “verbally abusive to an officer and then hit him”.
Maguire is now understood to have travelled back to the UK ahead of another hearing in court tomorrow, which he does not have to attend.
Sheffield-born Maguire became the world’s most expensive defender when he signed for Utd from Leicester City for £85million in August last year.
He was named captain in January this year following Ashley Young’s departure to Inter Milan.
He is next due to play at Old Trafford for their first game of the season on September 19 against Crystal Palace.
Maguire has made 26 appearances for England and was a key part of the team’s journey to the World Cup semi-finals in 2018.
