Prosecutors say key witness in motorcycle gang trial lied

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Prosecutors have asked a judge to throw out the testimony of a key witness in a federal racketeering trial stemming from a 2011 shootout killing a Hells Angels leader in a Nevada casino.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported Thursday that Gary "Jabbers" Rudnick lied after spending more than three days telling jurors that members of the Vagos Motorcycle Club had plotted to kill a rival biker in Sparks.

Officials say the eight men standing trial represent the first group of 21 defendants that prosecutors say were involved in crimes in California, Arizona, Hawaii, Oregon, Utah and Nevada.

Prosecutors say there are doubts as to whether the witness will be truthful.

Defense attorneys for the men have asked to have the murder and racketeering charges thrown out.

Pagan indicted for attempted murder in hit-run of fellow member

A Upper Township man accused of running down a motorcyclist in his truck and then speeding away has been indicted for attempted murder.
Noah Frost allegedly told police that the damage to his white Dodge Ram’s must have happened while it was parked in the Harrah’s Atlantic City parking garage.
But an investigation found that Frost was involved in the hit-and-run, which witnesses said was the result of what appeared to be a road rage incident.
Both men are members of the Pagans Motorcycle Club, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner previously said. But it was not clear what caused an issue between the two.
The victim, identified in the indictment as Benjamin DiPilla, was critically injured in the crash.

Winnipeg police raid Manitoba Hells Angels clubhouse for selling booze without a licence

Club believed 'Donations only' signs above bar would prevent police from busting them, search documents say

Winnipeg police raided two Manitoba Hells Angels clubhouses and charged three people with selling liquor without a licence under the Liquor, Gaming and Cannabis Control Act.

The search warrants were executed in December 2018 after police said they received information from three people that the Hells Angels were selling liquor without a licence inside two clubhouses in rural Manitoba houses. One is in the rural municipality of Rosser, the other on Redonda Street in the rural municipality of Springfield.

Police affidavits say the informants told investigators there is a set price for booze at the clubhouse bars and the Angels believed that law enforcement couldn't investigate them if they put up signs that said "Donations."
