Then how did that one justice argue that confiscation of personal property wasn't unreasonable? I fear that I'm missing important details about this case (was it about confiscating it once you've been arrested already?).

Here, it's been debated at the Supreme Court in R v. Lifchus (that's more about reasonable doubt but I imagine that some of those principles might apply including presumed innocence and logical connection to evidence).

I don't know about Australia but I'm fairly confident that a choke hold wouldn't fly in any jurisdiction here as reasonable force.
