- Family gathering turns violent after brother and sister attack police officer
- The Kiwi brothers and sisters choked, bit and handcuffed the female officer outside a pub
- The couple narrowly avoided time in prison because of the pathogenic incident
A Kiwi brother and sister who choked, bit and handcuffed a female police officer outside a Queensland pub have narrowly avoided time behind bars.
Hylton Miharo King, 24, and Ariana Thirteen King, 30, were expelled from the Brook Hotel in north Brisbane after threatening staff during a drinking session with family members.
When a police officer arrived on the scene to arrest Hylton after the attack in May 2019, he told the officer to eat, Queensland court heard.

Hylton’s sister Ariana Thirteen King (pictured) took the policewoman’s handcuffs and wrapped them around the officer’s wrist, preventing her from fully defending herself
The heavily built New Zealander then grabbed the officer by the throat and choked her.
While the policewoman struggled to breathe, Ariana’s mother of five took the officer’s handcuffs and wrapped them around the officer’s wrist, preventing her from fully defending herself.
She also ‘pulled and pushed’ another officer as he tried to help his partner.
When the policewoman finally pushed Hylton away, he bit her fingers.
“You didn’t stop at the first incident, you continued to injure and harm someone who protected the community,” Judge Nathan Jarro said.
“Your behavior was disgraceful … Shame on you both.
“It’s the people you would go to if something happened to you or your kids.”
Judge Jarro said the officer has longstanding mental health problems after the seven-minute traumatic incident.
Hylton is shown leaving the Queensland District Court with a relative. He is currently being held in immigration detention and will be sent back to New Zealand soon
“She had to undergo disease testing (after the bite) … she had to stop breastfeeding immediately if you infected her child,” he said.
The police officer sought psychiatric treatment in the wake of the despicable attack of May 2019 and only returned to work this week.
Both pleaded guilty to seriously attacking the officer.
Hylton was sentenced to 11 months in prison, but the term was completely suspended for two and a half years.
He is now being held in immigration detention and is waiting for deportation to New Zealand.
“Everyone goes to work and they hope they get home safely. Unfortunately, we know this is not always the case, ‘Queensland Police Secretary General Mick Barnes told reporters.
“Their brother goes home and it’s always sad to split a family, but in this case it’s very appropriate.”
Ariana was sentenced to nine months’ imprisonment, but the sentence was also suspended for two and a half years.
