Ex-Bandidos President Brett Pechey Arrested at Brisbane Airport

One-time Bandidos West End chapter president, Brett Pechey, surrendered to police after nearly 18 months on the run. He found refuge in Thailand after the infamous Broadbeach restaurant brawl.

The Taskforce Maxima Detective Inspector said, "We have had a warrant out for his arrest since March last year and have been going through the process of applying for extradition,"

It was that Broadbeach brawl which prompted Queensland's controversial Vicious Lawless Association Disestablishment laws in the hope of curtailing bikie-related crime.

"We're very pleased we have been able to bring the matter to a resolution," the Inspector said.

The bikie was also wanted over an array of other charges. Mr Pechey is scheduled to appear in Brisbane Magistrate Court on today.
