(video)--LEESBURG — Motorcyclist David “Gutter” Donovan, in town for the Leesburg Bikefest, went to a Circle K gas station to buy cigarettes, but when he walked out he had a knife to his throat, arrest reports released Wednesday show.

“The ‘Outlaws’ had been challenging several motorcycle clubs throughout Florida to either join their ranks or submit to their authority,” according to a report that sheds light on the shooting.

Bandidos Inc.: Tough-as-nails riders are now a nonprofit group

In the wake of a federal racketeering indictment in San Antonio that targeted three top leaders, the Bandidos Motorcycle Club has opted to put on paper what they have argued all along, that they are not a gang but a legitimate brotherhood of motorcycle riders.

In March, the Bandidos’ national board and interim president, William E. Sartelle, formed a nonprofit corporation called USARG Inc. to represent the Bandidos and to handle the group’s charitable contributions. Sartelle, Timothy W. Harper and Marcos M. Flores, all of the Houston area, are listed as directors.

Comancheros bikie jailed for at least three years after stabbing man in front of daughter

A bikie who stabbed a father in front of his terrified young daughter in Adelaide's north has been sentenced to at least three years in jail.

Raymond Patrick Harley Jones was convicted of aggravated causing harm with intent to cause harm when he failed to show up to the last day of his trial in October 2016.

The 30-year-old was on the run from police for two months before he was arrested in December last year.

South Australia's District Court today heard Jones launched an unprovoked attack on a man outside a house in Blakeview in February 2015, in what Judge Geraldine Davison described as "fortuitous violence".

"There was no justification for your behaviour whatsoever on this day," she said.

The court heard when Jones and another man turned up at the house, someone yelled "the Commies are here", in reference to Jones's association with the Comanchero Motorcycle Club.
