Bandido loses prison appeal

A member of the Bandidos motorcycle gang who was sentenced to 10 years in prison for killing a man and dumping his body in East Keilor has had his appeal against the severity of his sentence refused in the Supreme Court.

Luke Maybus was sentenced in March 2016 for the manslaughter of Michael Strike at the Bandidos’ Brunswick clubhouse in May, 2014. Two other co-accused have been sentenced for their roles in the death.

They did not appeal.

The court heard that on May 24, 2014, Mr Strike attended the Brunswick clubhouse and got into an argument with John Walker. During the argument Walker and Maybus pulled Mr Strike into the clubhouse.

Maybus, Walker and a third man then fatally assaulted Mr Strike, initially with their fists and then with a metal bar. The court heard the assault lasted several minutes.

Witness: When Bandidos stormed the bar, ‘the shooting started’

FORT WORTH

What started as an ordinary and quiet night at the Gator’s Jam Inn changed the minute members of the Bandidos motorcycle club stormed the bar, a witness testified Tuesday.

“Then the shooting started,” said Ellen Dockery, a bartender at Gator’s.

She was looking in the mirror facing the cash register when more than 20 people — identified as Bandidos by the color of their patches — started pouring in from the front and rear doors.

“Scotty (the head bartender) started screaming at me to get down,” Dockery said. “And then he called 911.”

Other 911 callers shared similar desperate pleas.

One man told the 911 call talker that they needed to send ambulances — quickly.

“There’s been 15 shots so far and they’re still shooting,” according to another 911 call.
