Australia - A former senior Finks member who won a court case by proving his large ring was not a knuckleduster has told a court police should pay more than $9000 of his legal costs.
In September 2012, police confiscated the two-finger ring with the word Fink embossed on it from Andrew Majchrak, now a member of the Mongols.
He was found not guilty of possessing a prohibited weapon after claiming it was a style of dress ring, popular with celebrities like Katy Perry and Snoop Dogg.
The magistrate found while it had similar qualities to a knuckleduster, it was most likely being worn as jewellery.
Police have offered to pay about $6000.
The parties are hoping to negotiate a compromise before another hearing in the Adelaide Magistrates Court next month.
