Ex-Hells Angel sues Ottawa cops over medical marijuana bust

A former Hells Angel is suing Ottawa police for false arrest, alleging he was charged with illegally possessing weed even after he showed officers a medical marijuana licence issued by Health Canada for treatment of his post-traumatic stress disorder.

In a statement of claim filed in Ottawa court, Michael Clairoux says he injured himself when he fell during a panic attack while in custody following the arrest on July 1, 2014. As well, he says, the arrest has aggravated his PTSD symptoms.

According to the statement, Clairoux was watching a Canada Day music show in the ByWard Market when two police officers took exception to his Hells Angels T-shirt and told him to leave. Clairoux, 42, claims he offered to go to a friend’s to change his shirt, but was told by Const. Nick Benard that he could not return.


Feds seek harsher sentences for Devil's Diciples members

Federal attorneys who prosecuted Devil’s Diciples Motorcycle Club members are asking a judge to attach a life-in-prison drug felony with the members’ racketeering-conspiracy convictions to double the potential suggested sentence to at least 16 years in prison.

Assistant U.S. attorneys Saima Mohsin and Eric Straus in legal briefs argue that since the members, as part of the conspiracy, trafficked in 500 grams of methamphetamine, which is a life offense, they should be sentenced as such, not as convicts of racketeering conspiracy, punishable by up to 20 years in prison.

The federal lawyers say Judge Robert Cleland can do that based on federal law that says “the maximum sentence that may be imposed is 20 years unless the jury finds that a defendant committed a predicate act that carries the possibility of a life sentence.”

Rival gangs check out bike week on different days

PENDLETON, Ore. – The Hell’s Angels and the Mongols don’t play well with each other. Both checked out Pendleton Bike Week, but Police Chief Stuart Roberts said fortunately those visits came on different days.

Early in the week, Oregon State Police in The Dalles alerted PPD that Hell’s Angels were coming toward Pendleton. The bikers took three exits into the city and found that the Round-Up City was ready for the visit.

“We were prepared for that and when they came off at our exits, we had cars on them and just monitored their movement and their activities,” he said. “They pulled back on the interstate and continued on east.”

The Mongols came to Pendleton for the Three Dog Night concert Saturday. Roberts said that officers were a little on edge when they saw a few members of the motorcycle club accompanied by a group of club prospects.
