The president of one of Australia's most feared bikie gangs was arrested on Monday night after allegedly punching a policeman in the face and setting his dogs on officers. 

Police from Operation Talon officers — a gun crime division - arrived at Kosh Radford's Annangrove home on Monday afternoon, where the 39-year-old allegedly evaded arrest for more than four hours, The Daily Telegraph reported.  

Radford, the president of the Finks outlaw motor cycle gang, faced court on Tuesday afternoon.

He was released on strict conditional bail, which included a $15,000 bond and orders not to associate with anyone from the Finks OMCG.

Officers from South West Metropolitan Region Enforcement Squad, Operation Talon, Strike Force Raptor, The Hills and Ku-ring-gai commands were called in to assist in Radford's arrest after police were allegedly attacked.

The Finks President gave himself up about 9pm and was charged with assaulting a police officer, resisting or hindering police, threatening injury to a person with intent to prevent lawful detention, intimidating a police officer, urging a dog attack and escaping police custody.

The policeman who was hit suffered two chipped teeth and swelling as a result of his injuries, and was taken to hospital but not admitted. A spokeswoman from NSW Police told Daily Mail Australia he was given stitches for his injuries.

Radford's lawyer John Korn told Parramatta Local Court on Tuesday NSW Police had seized footage from the 17 cameras which surround the bikie president's home.

Mr Korn questioned why the tapes had not been submitted as evidence to the court, claiming the alleged incident had taken place in full view of the cameras.

Radford, along with his child, wife and mother-in-law, were turned away from Bali on Friday following a tip-off from Australian intelligence sources,The Daily Telegraph reported. 

The man and his family were stopped by Immigration and refused entry before he and his family were sent back home to Sydney

'He was rejected 'because it is known that he is involved in a dangerous motorbike gang in Australia,' sources told the paper. 

'Foreigners that are allowed to enter Indonesia are those who are beneficial for Indonesia,' Ngurah Rai Immigration chief Ari Budijanto said.

'Foreigners who are rejected from entering Indonesia are foreigners that allegedly could causes restlessness and disturb national security.'

Mr Budijanto reportedly denied the tip-off came from the Australian authorities.

Daily Mail Australia does not suggest Radford's family was refused entry for any reason other than being in his company.  

In 2009, NSW police formed taskforce Raptor with the objective to 'target outlaw motorcycle gangs and any associated criminal enterprises'.

Last month, a 20-year veteran of the Finks motorcycle club told Daily Mail Australia he was just a 'normal bloke'. 

'I work full time, I have a mortgage and when I get home I have to mow the lawn just like anyone else,' he said.

'I'm not making drugs in my back shed or acting as a stand-over man - in fact, we try not to let guys like that into the club.

'To me a gang is a dangerous group of people, a street gang, people who fight over territory. That's not us. We just like bikes.'

There are more than 2,000 members of the Finks club, according to the members.
