Blacklist users on bridged SSID

I'm having a little trouble with blacklisting a wireless client and I wanted to check if blacklisting works on bridged APs.

One of the rules in the ACL is that any traffic to our internal servers is dropped and the user/device should be blacklisted.

I can see a user device sending packets that breach the ACL rule. The packets are dropped, but the user isn't blacklisted.
