Carroll was a feared standover man who was known for torturing drug dealers and other criminals.

He faced court following a string of home invasions in 2014.

Police say that he wielded a tomahawk and meat cleaver and demanded the drug dealers hand over their drugs. 

Several victims had ears cut off, broken bones and burned body parts.

Carroll admitted bashing a man with a baseball bat and then using a set of pliers on his fingers, toes and testicles.

He pleaded guilty to one count of assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

A source said that Carroll ‘was mad, too mad even for the bikies.’
