Three Arrested For Rock Springs Biker Assault

Three men who police identify as members of the Sons of Silence motorcycle gang have been arrested in connection with an attack on a member of a rival motorcycle gang in a Rock Springs bar.

According to a release from the Rock Springs Police Department, cops were called to the Saddle Lite Saloon around 3 p.m. Monday, where they found Bradley Chrisman bleeding from the head.

Chrisman told officers that he is an enforcer for the Bad 7 motorcycle gang and that he was wearing his gang patch while sitting at the bar. Chrisman told police Cory Rutherford walked up and started hitting him, saying “give me your cuts or I will kill you.” The word “cuts” is slang for the vest that has a gang member’s patch on it. Taking away a biker’s “cuts” is considered the worst possible insult among biker gangs, according to police.

Two other men, identified as 40-year-old Mattew Wedgewood and 34-year-old Nicholas Hanson joined in the attack. The three were all allegedly members of the Sons of Silence. Chrisman told police he was afraid for his life, so he gave up his “cuts” to stop the attack.

Chrisman and several witnesses told police the three men left the bar with the vest as well as a .38 Special snub nose revolver and the key to Chrisman’s motorcycle.

The three men were arrested at various locations in Rock Springs and are facing charges including robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, accessory to commit robbery and intimidation.
