A notorious Mongolian cyclist has been dramatically arrested at an airport over an alleged attack on a rival club member at a nightclub eight years ago.

Nick ‘The Knife’ Forbes, who is said to be the president of the Mongols outlaw’s motorcycle club, was arrested in front of travelers on Tuesday after getting off a plane at Darwin airport just after midnight.

Forbes, who lives in the Gold Coast, is said to have attacked a Hells Angel bicycle in the capital of the Northern Territory about eight years ago.

Nick ‘The Knife’ Forbes, who is said to be the president of the Mongols motorcycle club, was arrested in front of travelers on Tuesday after getting off a plane at Darwin airport just after midnight.

The cyclist was also wanted by police for failing to appear in court which he received while in custody over a separate brawl with the Hells Angels at an Adelaide nightclub.

Forbes had flown to Darwin voluntarily to surrender to the police with his lawyer Michael Gatenby.

Footage shows plainclothes detectives leading a handcuffed Forbes out of the airport.

When asked by a reporter if he liked his welcome, the cyclist replied, “Definitely.”

“It’s not like we knew they (the police) weren’t coming,” he said before being placed in the back of a rice cart.

It is clear that he apologized to other passengers at the airport after being taken away in handcuffs.

Mr. Gatenby told the ABC his client’s arrest was “over the top” and he did it in such a way because of Forbes’ “prominence”.

“The intent is to challenge the charges,” he said.

Forbes is due to appear in Darwin’s court on Tuesday.

The Mongols National Run will also take place in the Top End this weekend.

Forbes was jailed for 27 months for his involvement in the infamous motorcycle fight between the Finks and Hells Angels, dubbed the Ballroom Blitz in 2006.
