The ex-bikie father of AFL superstar Dustin Martin has been deported from Australia for a second time after trying to re-enter the country by claiming he has Aboriginal heritage.
Shane Martin, was first sent packing in 2016 with officials citing his criminal record, which included drug trafficking and assault charges.
He returned to his home country of New Zealand, where he had remained until Sunday night when he quietly tried to slip back into Australia with a lawyer in tow.
The 52-year-old reportedly claimed he has a grandmother in Tasmania with indigenous heritage.

Just last week, the Australian government passed a law which forbids any Aboriginal person from being deported.
The former Rebels outlaw motorcycle gang president was turned back at the border.
Border Force officials sent him back to New Zealand on the first Qantas flight on Monday morning.
At no stage has he provided any evidence of his indigenous heritage, officials said.
