Sword-Wielding Moped and Motorcycle Gang Caught Looting Gas Station on Video

Hell's Angels, this is not.

(pic and video) --- While biker groups like Hell's Angels are known for their rough-and-tough attitude, you wouldn't associate a pack of moped enthusiasts to turn to violence. That is, however, the case in Manchester, England as police have been dealing with a recent rise in vandalistic and lawless riding behavior from certain groups. Some have even been intimidating the public with weapons, leading to a heated environment within the community that came to a head in a gas station squirmish.

1 injured in early-morning shooting at Fairfield motorcycle club

An early-morning shooting Sunday at a Fairfield biker club left one man injured.

Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies were dispatched at 1:38 a.m. to a report of a shooting at Hell Lovers Motorcycle Club on Gary Avenue. Once on the scene, deputies learned a former member had been asked to leave.

Deputy Chief David Agee said the ex-club member pulled a gun and pointed it at a current club member. The club member then pulled his own weapon and fired at the ex-club member.

The injured man fled on foot. Deputies found him about a block away hiding in an abandoned house. Paramedics treated him on the scene, and he was then transported to a hospital. His condition is unknown, Agee said.

The investigation is ongoing, and no arrests have been announced.

Corpus Christi motorcycle gang member gets 9 years in federal prison for shooting at man

A 37-year-old Corpus Christi motorcycle gang member was sentenced for federal charges. 

Billy Boortz, a member of the Homietos outlaw motorcycle gang and former Mexican Mafia gang member, pleaded guilty to unlawful ammunition possession on July 24, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney's Office.

U.S. District Judge David Morales sentenced Boortz to nine years in prison followed by three years of supervised release, the release states.

"At the hearing, the court heard additional evidence that Boortz intentionally tried to murder the victim in this case," the release reads. "In handing down the sentence, the court noted Boortz fired his pistol directly at the victim, not in the air or at the ground, and that the offense would have constituted attempted second degree murder."

Tip helped lead to arrest of suspect in Neenah robbery and fatal shooting at local saloon

OSHKOSH — A tip from the public and a discarded cigarette helped lead police to the man arrested last week in connection with the death of Kevin "Hollywood" Hein, who was shot and killed Oct. 14 outside the Short Branch Saloon in Neenah. 

Casey Cameron, 36, of Menasha, was arrested Friday, a few weeks after investigators got a tip that he had "a lot of characteristics of the suspect," including scratches near his right eye and a roommate with a vehicle that matched a description police released to the public, according to a criminal complaint. 

The tipster also claimed Cameron was a member of the "Hell's Lover Motorcycle Club" and went by the nickname "Amish," the complaint says. 

On Nov. 1, a police officer spotted Cameron driving and smoking a cigarette in the same vehicle. When Cameron tossed a cigarette near the intersection of Main Street and Tayco Street in Menasha, the officer picked it up.
