Defense begins case in Twin Peaks Biker Shootout Trial

(video)--WACO - Another emotional day in the trial of Dallas Bandido leader Jake Carrizal wrapped up Monday as the defense began it's case. Carrizal is facing charges of engaging in criminal activity and directing activities of a street gang for his alleged involvement in the 2015 Twin Peaks Biker shootout that left nine people dead.

The defense kicked things off by asking for Carrizal's charges to be dropped, saying the state was withholding evidence. That request was denied by the judge, the defense however fired back calling the state unethical and criminal. There was then a 45 minute recess following that argument to allow the defense to review new materials.

Flashed gun leads to gang members arrested northwest of Tucson

MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A mother driving on Interstate 10 slammed on her brakes when a man on a motorcycle pulled out a gun, according to newly released records from Arizona Department of Public Safety.

The July 2 incident started with obscenities and middle fingers flashed at the family traveling east on I-10 near Casa Grande. The motorcycles passed the family in the right lane, when the lead rider pointed a 9mm handgun at the father in the passenger seat, according to the report.

The couple's three children were in the back seat. The husband called 911.

DPS troopers caught up with the motorcycles and stopped them off the Cortaro Road exit in Marana. They identified the group as members of The Chosen Few out of Florida. One trooper described them as "a documented, violent, outlaw motorcycle gang."

One member in the group attempted to run off but was stopped, according to the DPS report. Six other riders were told to stay with the bikes.

Vincent Lamer, a 48-year-old former Hells Angel and once a member of Maurice "Mom" Boucher's inner circle, was riddled with bullets Friday.
 

Vincent Lamer, a 48-year-old former Hells Angel and once a member of Maurice “Mom” Boucher’s inner circle, died early Friday after being riddled with bullets as he sat behind the wheel of his car in a Rivière-des-Prairies parking lot.

Police arrived at the scene of the shooting — the parking lot of an auto repair centre at 55th Ave. and la Marinière St. — at a little after midnight to find Lamer slumped behind the wheel of his car, multiple bullet wounds to his upper and lower body.

Lamer, who was sentenced to 10 years in 2002 after pleading guilty to drug trafficking, gangsterism and conspiracy to commit murder, was a close associate of Boucher, whose Nomad chapter of the Hells Angels in Quebec was on the front line of a criminal biker gang war that racked the province for nearly a decade.

Hells Angels making presence known

Outlaw motorcycle gang has erected signage on the front of its new Simpson Street clubhouse and police say they are aware the criminal organization is branding itself, 11 years after it was taken down in Thunder Bay during Project Husky.

THUNDER BAY – After 11 years in the criminal hinterlands, the Hells Angels is making its presence known in Thunder Bay again.

The outlaw motorcycle gang has erected a large sign outside its Simpson Street clubhouse, located next to the Underground Gym in the rundown neighbourhood on the city’s south side.

Thunder Bay Police Staff Sgt. Ryan Gibson says the organization has had a presence in Thunder Bay for quite some time, but after their former clubhouse was raided in 2006 during Project Husky, the local chapter was frozen.

Now it appears to be back in business.
