Ex-Bandido bikie Toby Mitchell has shoved a female photographer after appearing briefly in a Melbourne court on assault charges.
Mitchell, 43, faced Melbourne Magistrates Court on Wednesday charged with affray, intentionally and recklessly causing injury and unlawful assault following an alleged incident at Southbank on December 8.
As the former bikie enforcer left court, AAP photographer Ellen Smith said he shoved her hard as media jostled to get footage.
She was not injured.
Ms Smith believes Mitchell shoved her to get through the pack, pushing her camera against her face.
"I got jammed closer to him after he pushed me to one side, so that's ironic," she told AAP.
"It's just a silly thing for him to do."
The heavily-tattooed Mitchell, sporting gold teeth, appeared briefly in court wearing a Givenchy tracksuit top and matching Givenchy sneakers, worth a combined thousands of dollars.
Before his hearing, he was reprimanded by magistrate Belinda Wallington for chatting with his lawyer inside the courtroom.
His matter was adjourned to February 14 for further mention, giving his legal team a chance to view CCTV footage of the assault allegations.
Ms Wallington extended his bail.
