Former biker who feared Savages club sentenced to almost three years in prison

A former member of the Langford Savages biker gang has been sentenced to almost three years in jail for carrying a loaded firearm to protect himself from his former brethren.

Lyle Scott Briscoe’s lawyer told B.C. provincial court that his client possessed the stolen semi-automatic pistol in October 2018 because he had been threatened and shot after quitting the Hells Angels’ puppet club.


“At its inception, the Savages were simply a social and recreational club. As time passed, the Savages began to engage in organized criminal activity and became associated with the Hells Angels, with whom they engaged in joint criminal enterprises. Mr. Briscoe was opposed to such endeavours and sought to disassociate himself from the Savages,” Judge Ted Gouge summarized in his ruling, released Thursday.

Retribution in fatal N.H. biker crash pending in federal and state courts

A wrongful death suit against the company that pickup truck driver Volodymyr Zhukovskyy was working for at the time of a fatal crash with a group of bikers last year can go forward, a New Hampshire judge recently ruled, adding to the numerous lawsuits in the case.

A judge late last month tossed one of two counts in the suit from Mary Lou Welch, the common-law wife of Jarheads Motorcycle Club president Albert Mazza Jr., who was killed in the head-on collision in June on U.S. 2 in Randolph, N.H.

Westfield Transport, who employed Zhukovskyy and has since closed, attempted to get Welch’s claims of emotional distress and negligent hiring tossed after she filed the lawsuit in Strafford County Court last August.

A lawyer for Westfield Transport argued Welch’s emotional distress charge should have been dismissed because Welch wrote she could not remember seeing her husband in the wreck’s fiery aftermath.

Veteran says he was turned away at Tiki Bar & Grill

A man told Sebastian Daily that management from the Tiki Bar & Grill in Sebastian asked him to remove his vest because they violate their No Colors policy.


“So yesterday I was asked to take off my vest at the Tiki Bar in Sebastian. Apparently, they do not support Veterans or Values. Do not support this Business. God Bless America,” Jeff Gage told Sebastian Daily.

In August 2017, several Sebastian bars banned motorcycle colors and vests following an incident at Earl’s Hideaway Lounge with an individual and a biker gang. Since then, there’s been a controversy on whether Veterans can wear their vests, which most say does not break the rule.
