Ex-bikie in court on gun, drug charges

AAP logoAAP 5/11/2016

An alleged ex-bikie accused of firing a gun on a busy Sydney motorway has been refused bail.

Domenico Settineri was allegedly sprung with a loaded gun and 0.58g of methamphetamine when his car was spotted in the breakdown lane of the M4 Motorway at Homebush about 7.30am on Friday.

Officers searched the 43-year-old's vehicle, uncovering two spent casings and a live .22 calibre round.

They say another 48 rounds of ammunition were also found during their search.

Settineri is accused of discharging the firearm on the M4 at Blacktown shortly before his arrest and possessing the unauthorised black pistol in a public place without keeping it safe.

He is also charged with possessing and using the methamphetamine.

Settineri failed in his bid for release when he appeared via videolink at Parramatta Local Court on Saturday.

The magistrate said he had serious concerns about the nature of the alleged offences and there was nothing to indicate Settineri's remand was unjustified.

The 43-year-old will face Burwood Local Court on November 9.
