Feared bikie knocked out on CCTV
Feared bikie boss Toby Mitchell has been caught on camera getting knocked out after he started a fight with a "street person" in central Melbourne.
The 45-year-old must go to anger management and alcohol counselling sessions for six months before he is sentenced for two separate assaults late last year.
"The proof is what he brings back to me in six months," magistrate John Bentley said.
Mitchell pleaded guilty to two counts of unlawful assaults over separate fights at Southbank and South Yarra in Melbourne Magistrates Court last week and was due to be sentenced on Monday.
But Corrections Victoria staffed asked for more time to assess whether the gang member was suitable for a community-based order.
Mitchell's sentence was deferred while he took part in the anger programs and he must report every two months until September 1, Mr Bentley ordered.
His bail conditions were also eased. He no longer has to stick to a curfew and is free to hang out with his bikie mates after the non-association restriction was lifted.
The court would go "backwards in sentencing" if the Mongols head was slapped with a fine instead of a corrections order or jail time, police prosecutor Geoff Adams said.
He told the court last week the bikie boss was "out for blood" on November 15 last year when he attacked the man, who never reported the incident.
The prosecutor said the victim was a "local street person" though Mitchell's lawyer disputed this claim.
Footage of the Southbank fight shows the bikie punching the man in the face after a brief exchange, despite a group of men trying to hold him back.
He hits the victim twice in the body, before the group drags Mitchell away but the Mongols boss breaks free and takes another swing.
The tattooed bikie misses but his victim fights back and knocks the bikie to the ground.
Sergeant Adams said it was "sheer luck" Mitchell was knocked down because of his "glass jaw".
Mitchell was charged a month earlier over a separate fight where he slapped a man he knew outside Gilson cafe in South Yarra on October 4.
In footage, Mr Mitchell slaps the man with an open palm repeatedly, but slips over in his slides.
The victim was "too scared" to make a statement, Sergeant Adams said last week.
Mitchell grinned as the magistrate labelled his solicitor as one of the "finest" in the state.
The bikie was initially charged with affray, intentionally causing injury and other offences which were dropped.
He said nothing after leaving his lawyer's office on Monday afternoon.
