THE NEPHEW of notorious convicted drug lord Antonios ‘Fat Tony’ Mokbel has faced court after his arrest at Gold Coast Airport earlier this year.
Antonios Mokbel, 18, appeared in Coolangatta Magistrates Court on Monday charged with failing to follow instructions on an aircraft after an alleged incident on a flight from Melbourne to the Gold Coast on January 20.
The 18-year-old, son of Antonios ‘Fat Tony’ Mokbel’s older brother Horty Mokbel, is alleged to have turned aggressive after repeatedly refusing direction from a flight attendant to switch off his mobile phone as the plane proceeded to land at the Gold Coast airport.
Police allege he and members of his family then became engaged in a “heated argument” with airline staff.
The case was adjourned until March 31.
