A Hells Angel-bikie was found guilty of threatening witnesses after his friend reportedly hit a policeman in a brutal attack that deprived him of his sense of smell.
Bradley Newman, 28, threatened four people after his friend Nathan Bass reportedly hit the officer in a seemingly unprovoked attack at Cronulla Mall in March 2018.
The alleged thrust was so powerful that the officer hit his head on the sidewalk and stayed behind with reduced sense of smell and taste in a condition known as asmosia, reported the St George Shire Standard.

Daily Mail Australia does not suggest that Bass is connected to illegal motorcycle gang.
The fight allegedly broke out after Bass met a friend of the officer on the shoulder at 12.30, resulting in a verbal disagreement that resulted in the cruel alleged blow.
The officer was reportedly beaten unconscious immediately when his head hit the sidewalk.
Newman threatened passers-by who witnessed the alleged attack and said: "If you want your head to be pumped, keep going, let it be different."
Newman, Bass and other friends then went to 2230 Restaurant and Bar after the attack, before the police were notified of the incident.
One witness told the police that the alleged thrust was a "perfect, clean hit". was and that it & # 39; a loud bang & # 39; made.
& # 39; There was no provocation and no warning that a punch would be thrown & # 39 ;, the witness said.
Newman was found guilty of conviction and sentenced to a community correction order of three years and 400 hours community service.
Bass will appear in court on January 10, accused of assault that causes serious bodily harm.
