A senior Finks bikie brought up on gun and drug charges was denied a bail application on Thursday after calling police officers and his lawyer ‘rude f***ing c***suckers’, and the judge a ‘f***ing dog’.
Troy Albert Fornaciari, 34, appeared in Wollongong Local Court on Thursday after police seized a loaded .22 calibre pistol with a silencer, ammunition, a stolen car and Finks paraphernalia from a unit in North Wollongong.
Initially well mannered, Fornaciari had an outburst as he spoke to the judge via video-link that saw Magistrate Shane McAnulty determine him too hostile to apply for bail, The Sydney Morning Herald reported.
As his charges were read out to him, some involving alleged threats made at the scene of a motorbike crash in Dapto in August last year appeared to send him into a spin.
In an attempt to explain why he disagreed with the charges read out, he soon launched into a tirade against police, before directing the insults to his Legal Aid lawyer, David Ryan.
Magistrate McAnulty cautioned Fornaciari against his profanity multiple times before the bikie turned on him too.
‘What are you going to do? Are you going to come down here and personally do it yourself? If not, shut your f***ing mouth you f***ing dog,’ he said.
The Magistrate cut his video feed after the outburst, thus taking away the 34-year-old’s chance at bail.
Fornaciari is accused of a string of offences including possessing an unauthorised pistol, intimidating police, knowingly directing the activities of criminal group, recruiting another to assist in carrying out criminal activity and supplying a prohibited drug.
He was arrested, alongside gang member Jake William Smith, after detectives raided a unit in North Wollongong on Thursday morning as part of an investigation into a fight at the scene of the August motorcycle crash.
Inside, they discovered the premises were being renovated for use as a bikie clubhouse.
Smith, 20, has been charged with participating in a criminal group and two counts of driving whilst disqualified.
Neither man applied for bail and it was formally refused in Wollongong Local Court on Thursday.
Fornaciari is due to reappear in the same court on March 21 while Smith will do likewise on March 13.
