State, Carrizal seek delay in Twin Peaks shootout retrial

Prosecutors and an attorney for Jacob Carrizal have agreed to postpone the retrial of the Twin Peaks biker shootout defendant, which had been set for Sept. 10.

In a joint motion for a continuance, Robert Moody, McLennan County first assistant district attorney, and Chris Lewis, Carrizal’s attorney, cite the volume of evidence Lewis needs more time to review, plus evidence federal prosecutors have agreed to share from the trial of two former Bandidos national leaders that both sides want to see.

Lewis signed on to represent Carrizal, the Dallas Bandidos chapter president, shortly after Carrizal’s first trial ended in a hung jury and mistrial in November. Carrizal is the first and only Twin Peaks defendant to stand trial so far in the May 2015 shootout that left nine dead and 20 wounded. He initially was represented by Casie Gotro, of Houston, who withdrew from the case after the mistrial.

Victim was member of another motorcycle club and feared for his life, Nova Scotia court told

Three members of the Bacchus Motorcycle Club in Nova Scotia have been convicted of threatening, harassing, intimidating and extorting a man who tried to bring a chapter of the Montreal-based Brotherhood Motorcycle Club to the province.

In a recent written decision, Nova Scotia Supreme Court Justice Peter Rosinski also agreed with a police outlaw biker gang expert that Bacchus is a criminal organization and concluded the men committed the crimes to benefit the gang.

The group, which has links to the Hells Angels, is the largest motorcycle gang in the province.

Patrick Michael James and David John Pearce, both of Dartmouth, N.S., and Duayne Jamie Howe, of Grand Desert, N.S., will be sentenced Oct. 22.

Hells Angels bikie 'violently' resisting arrest captured in body camera footage by NT Police

(video) --- A high-ranking Hells Angels bikie has been found guilty of resisting arrest and assaulting a police officer following a dramatic takedown in Darwin, which one officer said was the most violent resistance he'd seen in 30 years of policing.

Body camera footage shows Phillip O'Shea, who police say is a sergeant-at-arms for the Northern Territory chapter of the Hells Angels, being tasered multiple times by members of the NT Police Territory Response Group (TRG) in his Palmerston home in October 2017.

Police raided the property after gaining evidence of O'Shea obtaining drugs.

The 44-year-old can be heard groaning and swearing at officers as he is apprehended in the video footage, and after being instructed by officers to extend his arms, exclaimed "I can't mate… I can't breathe".

Judge: No acquittal, new trial for ex-Bandidos' leaders

John Portillo, Jeffrey Pike challenged convictions

SAN ANTONIO - A federal judge on Monday rejected attorneys' claims for acquittal and new trial for two former leaders of the Bandidos.

Jeffrey Fay Pike and John Xavier Portillo were convicted in May on charges of racketeering, drug dealing, extortion and multiple murders. The trial lasted more than three months and included testimony from Bandidos members, as well as FBI agent Scott Schuster, who testified as an expert on the gang.

Attorneys for the men questioned Schuster's testimony primarily on the basis that his testimony was "hearsay" and that "he was shown merely to be an investigator and a recounter of stories he had come across during his investigation of the club."

R.I. police pull over 100 motorcycle club members, but issue no citations

HOPKINTON, R.I. — What happens when police officers from three departments pull over about 100 members of a motorcycle club on an interstate highway? Well, sometimes nothing.

Such was the case Saturday afternoon when Rhode Island State Police, assisted by officers from Hopkinton and Connecticut, pulled over about 100 members of the Pagans motorcycle club on Route 95 shortly after they had crossed into Rhode Island.

Laura Meade Kirk, spokeswoman for the Rhode Island State Police, said the motorcyclists were pulled over about 1:30 p.m. Saturday as part of an “investigatory stop.”

But the stop turned up not a single violation nor culminated in a single arrest, she said, and the bikers continued on their way to a club rally in Fall River.

Quebec police investigating Hells Angels death threats against hockey legend Guy Lapointe

Quebec police say they are investigating after hockey legend Guy Lapointe was threatened by Quebec Hells Angels amid a national rise in tensions in the outlaw biker world.

According to Quebec media reports, the Hells Angels motorcycle gang threatened the lives of Insp. Guy Lapointe of the Sûreté du Québec, a provincial police spokesperson on outlaw bikers, and his father, Guy Lapointe Sr., 70, earlier this week.

The senior Lapointe is a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame starred for the Montreal Canadiens in the 1970s as a defenceman, winning six Stanley Cups.

The junior Lapointe has cut a high profile in the Quebec media as a spokesperson on biker issues. He commented frequently in the media in April during a massive police operation against the bikers called Operation Objection, when police arrested more than five dozen people across Quebec.
