Accused Broadbeach bikie brawl bunch to stand trial one year on

A YEAR after terrified diners were caught up in a mass bikie brawl in Broadbeach, some of those allegedly involved will stand trial.

Nine Bandidos members, including alleged riot ringleader Jacques Teamo, will face a joint trial in September.

The Bulletin reports, dozens more are expected to join the week-long trial set for September 15.


Lawyers for 26 alleged bikies continued negotiations in Southport Court yesterday.

Each of their clients was charged with riot over the street brawl outside the Aura Tapas and Loungebar in the busy dining precinct in September last year.

More than 40 people so far have been charged over the incident and some have already pleaded guilty to riot and obstructing police, receiving sentences which have ranged from community service to six months jail.

The two alleged targets, Jason Trouchet and best mate Matthew Sward, were fined $1000 and $500 for affray in March.
