On September 27 last year, tourists and local families dining out in the heart of Broadbeach were left cowering in fear as a pack of leather-clad Bandidos and two men associated with the Finks bikie gang started brawling on Surf Parade.
Protesting after their comrades were arrested, a squad of angry bikies then stormed the Southport Police Station.
Detective Inspector Brendan Smith of Taskforce Maxima said the latest arrest demonstrated the determination of police to investigate all aspects of the 2013 incident.
