City Commits $200 Grand for Policing Hell's Angels

The City of Cody and Cody Police Department are preparing for the arrival of the Hell's Angels this summer.

Police Chief Perry Rockvam met with Governor Mead and legislators this year. The department was requesting financial assistance from the state to cover the cost of adding extra law enforcement during the Angels' stay in late July, early August.

The last time the Hell's Angels were in Cody in 2006, the state committed $500,000 to cover extra patrol wages and overtime. Rockvam admits that the department did not learn until late that the Angels were coming this summer and is not near as prepared as it was eight years ago.

“The residents of the city don't want this event to be here,” said Rockvam. “However, we  can't tell them not to come. When (the Angels) do decide to make the community a place for them to visit it becomes an operation that we just have to manage.”

Warlocks leader found not guilty of murder, mistrial declared on count

SANFORD -- 

A Seminole County jury says David Maloney, the leader of the Philly Warlocks motorcycle gang, is not guilty of murder.

On Wednesday, Maloney was found not guilty on two counts of second-degree murder and one count of attempted first-degree murder.

But Maloney will go back to court on May 14 on a count of attempted first-degree murder. The judge declared a mistrial on that count after the jury could not reach a verdict.

Maloney is the first of four men to stand trial for the 2012 shooting deaths outside a VFW hall in Winter Springs. He was initially charged with three counts of second-degree murder, but one of the counts was later dropped.

The jury returned a verdict around 11 p.m. after deliberating for approximately nine hours.

State and defense attorneys spent Wednesday morning delivering closing arguments in the case.

Jury begins deliberations in Warlocks Motorcycle Club murder trial(video)

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —

The jury in the murder trial of a Warlocks Motorcycle Club member began deliberations Wednesday afternoon. The jurors were handed the case around 1:55 p.m.

The founder of the Philadelphia Warlocks Motorcycle Club looked on Wednesday as prosecutors made closing arguments, trying to convince a jury he's guilty of murdering two members of a rival motorcycle club in Winter Springs in 2012.

David Maloney is accused of killing two people during a shootout with the rival Orlando Warlocks MC during a fundraiser at the Veterans of Foreign Wars post in Winter Springs.

Even though bullets fired from Maloney's gun never struck the victims, the prosecution believes his participation makes him responsible.

"To be principal, the defendant doesn't even have to be present when the crime was committed," said prosecutor Stewart Stone.

Judge: Jury can consider self-defense during deliberations in Warlocks MC shooting (video)

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. —

A judge denied a motion Tuesday for a jury to consider the stand your ground law in the murder trial of a former Warlocks Motorcycle Club member.

The judge, however, said the jury can consider self-defense in Philadelphia Warlock David Maloney's trial.

Maloney's attorneys argued Tuesday that Maloney fired his gun while standing his ground against the rival Orlando Warlocks who showed up during a charity bike event at the Winter Springs Veterans of Foreign Wars post.

Three people died in the 2012 shootout.

Maloney, who was once a member of the Orlando Warlocks, told the judge that it was his choice to testify. He told the jurors he feared for his life from possible retribution by his former club and only pulled the trigger to defend himself.

Tramps president Ronny Harding withdraws from legal battle to regain gun licence

The president of the state's smallest motorcycle club has backed down from a legal battle to regain his gun licence, leaving three other club members to fight the possible test case in Victoria’s appeals court.

Four members of Wangaratta motorcycle club, the Tramps, had taken their dispute to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal in a bid to overturn a Firearms Committee's decision to uphold police’s cancellation of their firearms licences in 2012.

But club president Ronny Harding pulled out of the challenge on Tuesday. His lawyers would not say why he had withdrawn.

Tramps members Michael Oxenham, Mal Dinsdale and David Winzer will continue with their appeal.

They say they used firearms for hunting, controlling vermin, and, in the case of Mr Oxenham, for work as a mobile butcher.
