5 held after Friday’s shooting on Highway 395

Five men are in jail after one of them allegedly pointed a gun at a motorist before Friday’s shooting on Highway 395.

Few details about the shooting have been released, but five California members of the Hells Angels — Jason A. Marshall, 47; Neal G. Foulger, 55; William D. Smeeton, 47; William I. Maclean, 66; and Michael A. Smullen, 59, are being held in Franklin County jail after one of their fellow members Dennis Donahue, 52, was shot in the leg.

Authorities are holding the men for 72 hours on suspicion of criminal mischief. Two of the men, Foulger and Marshall, are accused of unlawfully possessing a firearm. Washington State Patrol investigators identified the men as Hells Angels by their clothing.

No one is yet charged with any crime related the shooting.

Judge Joe Burrowes set bail at $10,000 for Smeeton, $15,000 for Smullen, $20,000 for Marshall, $30,000 for Maclean and $35,000 for Foulger.

Calls for anti-consorting laws after Comancheros Canberra run

The Canberra Liberals have renewed their calls for anti-consorting laws after 100 Comancheros bikies gathered in the capital over the weekend. 

Members of the outlaw motorcycle gang from NSW, Queensland, Victoria and Western Australia travelled to Canberra as part of the Comancheros' national run.

Shadow attorney-general Jeremy Hanson said the gathering could be yet another sign of brewing bikie trouble in the ACT.

"As a result of Labor's failure to implement anti-consorting laws, bikies are able to operate in the ACT in ways they are prohibited from doing in other states," Mr Hanson said.

Brawl charges against two Pagans withdrawn

MEDIA COURTHOUSE >> The commonwealth has withdrawn charges against two members of the Pagan’s Motorcycle Club for an alleged assault against a fellow club member in April.

 

 

Assistant District Attorney Christopher DiRosato told Delaware County Common Pleas Court President Judge Kevin F. Kelly that he was unable to secure the presence of the complaining victim – though he noted the charges were initiated more by police – and was therefore withdrawing charges against 48-year-old Brion Phillips and Joseph E. Meehan, 44, of Ardmore.

 

 

Phillips and Meehan were charged with conspiracy, harassment, and aggravated and simple assault for the April 13 incident that resulted in Phillips being shot in the leg. Meehan was also charged with reckless endangerment.

 

 

A third club member was also initially charged, but those charges were dropped at the magisterial district judge level.

Back to the future: Satan’s Choice biker club reappears on Ontario roads

Once the second largest outlaw motorcycle club in the world, the Satan’s Choice club folded in December 2000 when it was absorbed by the Hells Angels.

Ontario police can be forgiven for doing double takes this summer at the sight of bikers wearing the grinning devil patch of the Satan’s Choice Motorcycle Club on their backs.

Once the second largest outlaw motorcycle club in the world, the Satan’s Choice club folded in December 2000 when it was absorbed by the Hells Angels.

This summer, a group of Durham and Ottawa-area bikers have re-invented the Satan’s Choice club, which will likely upset Hells Angels bikers, said Det. Sgt. Len Isnor of the OPP Biker Enforcement Unit.

“It’s a bit shocking,” Isnor said. “By somebody bringing them back, there could be some problems. Yes, we’re going to watch.”

The Hells Angels had no immediate comment on the new club.

Tensions rise during hearing in Twin Peaks shootout case

If the trial of the first Twin Peaks case lives up to the rancor and ill will exhibited between attorneys on both sides in recent pretrial hearings, the McLennan County courthouse could be in for a real donnybrook.

Tensions between prosecutor Michael Jarrett and defense attorney Casie Gotro continued to mount Monday during a three-hour pretrial hearing in Waco's 19th State District Court.

Judge Ralph Strother seemed more like a referee in a 15-round boxing match, as he repeatedly asked the attorneys to address him and not each other and cautioned Gotro to quit interrupting him.

Murder suspects are high-level gang members, cop says

Three men charged with murder in connection with a fatal shooting in Grand Junction five months ago were upper-level members in a national outlaw motorcycle club’s local branch, according to a detective who testified about the gang’s structure in court.

Richard Byrd, 49, Rufus Billups, 42, and Gregory Clark, 39 — each of whom is charged in the March 15 slaying of 38-year-old Dion Nixon at his Grand Junction home — are all members of one-percenter motorcycle club the Sin City Deciples, according to Grand Junction Police Detective Julie Stogsdill, who headed the investigation.

Police believe Nixon was shot to death on the front porch of his trailer at James Trailer Park, 489 28 1/4 Road, after a confrontation with several local members of the Sin City Deciples. Witnesses have told police that Nixon’s girlfriend was the ex-wife of the chapter’s past president.
