COVINGTON, Ky. (Rich Jaffe) -- Two members of a local biker gang now face charges in connection with a fire at a rival gang's club. This case began back in mid-February, when Local 12 reported exclusively on the violent back and forth between the Detroit Highwaymen and their rivals the Iron Horsemen. It culminated the weekend of February 23, with what authorities say was two Highwaymen shooting up and firebombing the Horsemen's Covington clubhouse. Local 12 has learned that on Friday, Cincinnati Police and ATF agents picked up Emmert Earls, also known as Andy Earls, and Ricky Fields. Both are members of the now defunct Cincinnati chapter of the Detroit Highwaymen. They're facing a variety of charges including arson for the February attack on the Iron Horsemen's Covington clubhouse. People were inside the building when the two men allegedly opened fire with a shotgun and threw an incendiary device, basically a Molotov cocktail through one of the upstairs windows. The attack followed multiple violent altercations between the two rival motorcycle gangs in Cincinnati. This is a case that was largely made through the efforts of a Covington Police detective. Members of these two biker gangs routinely don't cooperate with authorities and prefer to settle things between themselves. But it's a case that everyone takes very seriously, and if convicted, Earls and Fields could be looking at life in prison. Just last month, Cincinnati Police shut down the Detroit Highwaymen's clubhouse as a public nuisance. At the same time, their national president shut the chapter down for drawing too much attention to the group.
