The alleged assault happened when Mr Alcock went to investigate a Hyundai Hatchback driving around Maranoa Drive at Logan.
The court heard Lambropoulos pulled Mr Alcock into the car and began bashing him.
Another man allegedly pointed a sawn-off shotgun at Mr Alcock’s head and Lambropoulos allegedly threatened his employee and former friend, the court heard.

Mr Alcock was told the demand for money was because ‘you opened your mouth’ and ‘screwed me over’, the court heard.
He was forced to exit the Hydundai while it was still travelling 30km an hour.
Lambropoulos sought bail in the court hearing after being charged with assault occasioning bodily harm, deprivation of liberty and extortion.
The fast owner’s lawyer disputed the allegations and said his client had no contact with Mr Alcock since firing him for allegedly stealing $1,500 at Silly Willys.
He also told the court he client claimed to be working the day the alleged offences occurred.
Beenleigh Magistrates Clare Kelly denied the application for bail because of an unacceptable risk of committing other offences.
Lambropoulos was remanded in custody and is due to appear again on June 22.
