Allan James Pink, known as Jamie, was convicted of having a studded baseball bat.

Pink was due to go on trial in the Hamilton District Court today but changed his plea.

In March, he pleaded guilty to possessing two firearms.

Pink will be sentenced on all the charges in June.

Pink heads the Tribal Huk gang and became known after taking a hard-line against meth dealers in Ngaruawahia in October and claiming he had successfully driven them out of the Waikato town.
