Warren Law Department dismisses civil action related to motorcycle clubhouse

The Warren Law Department and the Warren-area motorcycle club Forever Two Wheels have agreed to dismiss a civil action the city filed to force closure of the group’s clubhouse.

The decision cancels a hearing that had been scheduled for today in Trumbull County Common Pleas Court.

A judgment entry signed Thursday by Judge Andrew Logan says the city and club agree that the clubhouse at 338 Chestnut Ave. NE “will no longer be utilized as a clubhouse for criminal gang activity.”

The city “is satisfied that the nuisance has been abated,” the entry says. The club has agreed to pay all court costs associated with the civil action, the judgment entry says.

Judge Logan approved a temporary restraining order June 23 that allowed city workers to board up the structure pending a further hearing.

That action followed a June 18 gunfight at Shorty’s Place, a bar on Highland Avenue, Warren Township, that killed two members of another Warren-area motorcycle club, the Brothers Regime.

FTW President David H. Bailes Jr., 45, of Leavittsburg was charged with two counts of murder in the deaths of Robert A. Marto, 54, of Cortland, and Jason C. Moore, 41, of Bristolville.

But Bailes has not appeared in court on the charges because of the injuries he suffered in the gunfight.

Capt. Rob Massucci of the Warren Police Department said it appears about 10 members of each club were at the bar that afternoon when Bailes and members of the Brothers Regime were seen arguing in the front doorway. About 30 gunshots rang out soon afterward, police said.
