Kingsmen trial witness sentenced to probation

COURT: Witness in case receives three years of probation for misdemeanor drug charge.

A witness in the 2014 Kingsmen Motorcycle Club double-murder was spared prison-time Wednesday for a drug arrest in 2016.

Leslie Maziarz, of North Tonawanda, was sentenced by Niagara County Court Judge Matthew Murphy III to three years of probation for a misdemeanor criminal possession of a controlled substance charge. 

Maziarz was arrested July 8, 2016 on a felony drug charge after police executed a search warrant on a North Tonwanda residence and found her and Steven Papoi with cocaine. She pleaded guilty in November 2016 and entered a two-year drug diversion program. 

Upon completing the program, Maziarz was allowed to plead guilty to a reduced misdemeanor drug charge.

Bykes for Tykes has record year

COOS BAY — Santa rode south on his Harley for a special visit to Coos Bay so he could lead local motorcycle clubs in their annual Bykes for Tykes event over the weekend.

This is the 19th year that Walt Evans of Coos Cycle and Supply and his band of bikers joined together to donate bicycles and toys to families in need this Christmas.

“We have almost 300 bikes this year, that’s a record for us," Evans said. "We had 225 a couple years ago."

Last year, the Bykes for Tykes event donated 140 bikes which means this year the donation likely doubled in size. It’s important to note that Bykes for Tykes also collects hundreds of toys for donation as well.  

Unlike years past, the bikes and toys were donated to the Bus Jam fundraiser put on by local radio station K-Dock and the Rotary Club instead of being taken to the Salvation Army.

Police arrest alleged motorcycle gang member charged in connection with brawl slaying

A man who was previously charged with second-degree murder in connection to a slaying that allegedly occurred during a brawl between rival motorcycle gangs last summer was arrested Thursday.

Leon Anthony Harris was booked into the Tulsa County Jail in lieu of a $515,000 bond. In addition to the murder charge, Harris was charged in September with aggravated assault and battery and a gang-related offense.

Harris was one of five men who prosecutors say were involved in an assault at Torchy’s Briar Patch, 1111 S. 124th East Ave., on June 3. The assault resulted in the shooting death of 49-year-old James Mitchell, while a second man was hospitalized with a severe head injury.

Man Enters Plea To Break-In That Led To Motorcycle Club Fire

A plea has been entered by the man charged with a break-in at the Scorpions Motorcycle Club in Lyon Township.

40-year-old Kinley Rae-Thomas Kelm pleaded no contest last week in Oakland County Circuit Court to charges of breaking and entering with intent, larceny of firearms, being a felon in possession of a firearm and two counts of felony firearms. A no contest plea is not an admission of guilt, but is considered as such at sentencing.

Proceeds from Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally will go to hurricane victims

(video) --- PENSACOLA BEACH, Fla. (WEAR) — For the last 17 years, Panama City has hosted the Thunder Beach Motorcycle Rally, but Hurricane Michael forced them to find a new place this year.

That new place is Pensacola Beach.

This weekend, thousands of motorcyclists are gathering there and 100 percent of the proceeds from the event will go to people impacted by the hurricane.

Greg and Jill Ward have been going to the Thunder Beach Rally for 12 years. They say this year’s event in Pensacola is smaller, but the focus is not the crowd.

"This is not even a drop in the hat, so we're just doing what we can to support them. We can't do much, but we do what we can,” Greg said.
