    Mehajer, the man behind the ultra-extravagant wedding that saw him block off an entire street for his million-dollar sports car procession, was charged today by NSW Police.

    It comes after reports that Mehajer threatened a man at a gym in Burwood after he was asked to stop dropping heavy weights on the gym's floor.

    Channel 7 reported last month that Mehajer allegedly followed gym owner Bruce Harat to his car before confronting him saying "don't you know who I am? I'm Salim Mehajer. I'm going to take this further, I'm going to find out where you live and have your kids kidnapped."

    Officers had trouble locating Mehajer earlier today, with broadcaster Ray Hadley going so far as telling listeners to report sightings of Mehajer's sports cars if they saw them.

    Salim Mehajer rose to national prominence after his multi million-dollar wedding made headlines across Australia. In what was dubbed by many as "Australia's most expensive wedding," helicopters, private jets, Ferraris, motorcycles, and a 'pre-wedding Youtube video' that went viral were all included in the lavish celebrations.

    Earlier this week Mehajer appeared on Channel 9 News to give a bizarre interview in which he claimed he hoped to one day be the future Prime Minister of Australia.

    He has since come out and said that his words were "cut to their [the media's] business needs."

    Mehajer will appear in Burwood local court on the 19th November, 2015.
