Australia - Bandidos sergeant-at-arms Toby Mitchell was caught with a Taser and $42,500 that was allegedly the proceeds of crime in his Docklands apartment, according to court documents.
Mr Mitchell, 38, who has survived two attempts on his life in the past two years, appeared briefly in Melbourne Magistrates' Court on Friday on two charges of dealing with the proceeds of crime and two weapons offences.
Police allege Mr Mitchell was caught with a Taser and a flick knife on November 8 last year, when the cash was also allegedly found.
He was bailed to appear before court on November 14. Advertisement
During Friday's appearance, Mr Mitchell had the conditions of his bail altered so he did not have to report to police over the next three weeks.
Mr Mitchell has survived two attempts on his life in recent years, one in March when he and other Bandidos members were ambushed outside another bikie gang's clubhouse in Melton.
Mitchell was shot in the right bicep, while another Bandido suffered minor wounds.
In November 2011, the former heavyweight kickboxer nearly died after he was shot five times outside Doherty's Gym in Brunswick.
He was on life support for weeks and lost a kidney and part of his liver but refused to co-operate with investigating police.
On Sunday, Fairfax Media reported that Mr Mitchell had pleaded guilty to serious assault charges over a brawl at a King Street strip club in 2010.
