Ex-bikie faces court over harness driver ‘assaults’

Picture


AN ex-bikie accused of bashing and intimidating harness racing drivers behind the stables over a prolonged period will front court today.

Grant Gavin, 32, allegedly assaulted, threatened and intimidated harness drivers “over ways they drove” at Albion Park and Redcliffe after they raced horses trained by his father Graham.

The former Fink and Mongol bikie (pictured) also owned shares in the horses his alleged victims drove. Female drivers were included in his alleged victims. The charges are the first of their kind from the Queensland Racing Crime Squad who have been granted coercive hearing powers, allowing them to question witnesses under oath to gain information.

Gavin, who is out on bail, will today front Southport Magistrates Court charged with one count of assault occasioning bodily harm and two counts of common assault.

Man fined for Qld harness race assaults

A man's anger over alleged race fixing at a Queensland harness racing track led to assaults on three drivers, a court has heard.

Grant James Gavin, 32, was fined $2000 at Southport Magistrates Court on Wednesday after pleading guilty to three counts of assaulting harness racing drivers at Albion Park Raceway in Brisbane last year.

The court heard Gavin was angered after incidents in races involving horses trained by his father, approaching rival drivers before striking them and verbally threatening them.




The first assault occurred on April 26, 2016, when Gavin approached a driver who had clashed with his father's horse during a race.

"If you ever do it again it will be a bad idea," Gavin told the man before shoving him.

On August 12, 2016, Gavin punched a driver and knocked his helmet off, and then on October 28, 2016, the father-of-three punched another driver in the mouth and accused him of lying about an arranged race result.

The court heard two of three drivers assaulted by Gavin have since been charged with fixing races.

Gavin was charged in February after an investigation by the Queensland Racing Crime Squad.

That is incorrect, 2 of the 3 drivers involved have not been charged with race fixing none of them have. 1 of them have been charged with failing to give his horse every chance to win and that is all.

How can someone lie to the court and it not be corrected.

It depends on who made the statement....assuming it has been accurately reported.......possibly the defence as you would think that the prosecution would have got the facts right ......and looking at it logically it would be to the benefit of the defendant to paint the picture that suits him best ...but I'm only guessing.
