THREE members of the Comanchero bikie gang including its chief have faced a Melbourne court over a strip club brawl last month.
Comanchero boss Mark Buddell, 27, and fellow members David Gavelan, 29, and Samson Bazi, 28, were extradited from NSW to Victoria and faced a brief hearing in the Melbourne Magistrates' Court today.
A fourth man was charged over the incident last year and a fifth is still wanted for questioning by police.
It is alleged the bikies were involved in a brawl at the Spearmint Rhino strip club in King St Melbourne on December 18.
The trio are accused of assaulting and injuring four men in the stoush.
They were arrested last week after police raids in Coogee, Mount Druitt and Arncliffe, according to NSW police.
Buddell, of South Coogee, and Gavelan, of Mount Druitt, are on bail and walked from court after the hearing.
Bazi, from St Kilda, is in custody but may apply for bail at a later stage, the court heard.
Each faces 19 charges including affray, assault and intentionally and recklessly causing serious injury.
The men will return to court on March 21 for a committal mention.
