The leader of the Comanchero bikie club, Mark Buddle, has been released from jail after serving less than a year for affray and offensive behaviour.
Mr Buddle was charged after police were called to the Clovelly Hotel on September 30 last year following a brawl at the pub.
After being extradited from Queensland in December last year, Mr Buddle, 28, was sentenced to a year-long jail sentence with a non-parole period of 20 weeks.
A Corrective Services of NSW spokeswoman confirmed Mr Buddle was released on May 2.
A senior Comanchero member told Fairfax Media Mr Buddle, who lives in Clovelly, was doing “f— all” now that he is a free man.
But Mr Buddle is yet to face charges in Victoria relating to an alleged brawl outside the Spearmint Rhino strip club in Melbourne.
Mr Buddle assumed national leadership of the Comanchero after former president Mahmoud “Mick” Hawi was jailed for the fatal Sydney airport brawl with the Hells Angels in 2009 and Duax “Dax” Ngakuru fled Australia in 2011.
Mr Buddle has come out to a club in disarray after NSW police last week made 10 arrests of members, including the Milperra chapter president Jack Dippizio.
More than 130 police on April 30 raided 10 properties across Sydney, including the Comancheros’ Milperra clubhouse, where they arrested eight members on a range of drug and gun supply charges.
A large quantity of cocaine, methamphetamine and cash was also seized in the early morning raids along with high-powered firearms.
Gangs Squad Commander Arthur Katsogiannis told Fairfax Media he would not comment on individuals.
“It doesn’t matter if it is a Comanchero or whoever we will continue to monitor their activity and if they break the law they will feel the full force of the gang squad,” he said.
“We are always working with local police and will be continuing to target outlaw motorcycle gangs.”
