– Police have arrested Bandidos boss Toby Mitchell and another member of the bikie gang in a dramatic interception on a South Melbourne street.
Police confirmed that a 38-year-old Docklands man and a 32-year-old Reservoir man were arrested after a man was allegedly assaulted on Clarendon Street.
Both were released without charge, pending further investigations.
A witness told 3AW that armed plain-clothes police stopped a black sedan at the corner of Cecil and York Streets, across the road from the South Melbourne Market, and ordered the occupants onto the road.
Another witness, who did not want to be named, said it was an incredibly tense and dramatic scene. “I was eating lunch and heard this yelling, turned around and there were over 10 plain-clothed police all pointing guns at the suspects’ vehicle,” she said.
“It took some time before they got them out and I thought there was going to be a shootout. Unmarked police cars came from nowhere and blocked the streets”.
David Zuegn saw one of the arrests. He said it appeared police planned the operation, with police cars appearing from every entry into the intersection of York and Cecil Streets.
Mr Zuegn Saif there were about six or seven uniformed police and another seven or eight plain-clothed officers. “It looked pretty planned,” he said.
“They told the guy to get out and basically ripped him out of the car, put him on the ground and handcuffed him.
“They then went through the car, went through the boot and just let him sit there for a while.”
Mitchell has survived two attempts on his life in recent years. In November 2011, the former kickboxer nearly died after he was shot five times outside Doherty’s Gym in Brunswick – Dan Oakes & Jared Lynch

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
