IMPD monitors four biker gangs during Indy rally

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. — During a bold and never-before-seen show of presence in an attempt to establish territorial claim, four biker groups rallied in Indianapolis Saturday as IMPD officers maintained a wary watch.

Two long established Indianapolis biker gangs with approximately 130 motorcycles representing the Sons of Silence, the Outlaws and other allies, partnered up at a southeast side rally location before dispersing in small groups of a dozen or so riders to head for bars throughout the east side early Saturday afternoon.

Meanwhile, an apparently newly formed congregation of Hells Angels, many from Ohio but never previously represented in large strengths in central Indiana, was joined by other bikers, including the Black Pistons of Michigan, outside of a clubhouse location south of downtown.

Bikers roll down life's highway together with a solid bond forged on two wheels

STURGIS, S.D. - They call her “Blinker.”

Her real name is Kattathu Johnson, and she’s a U.S. Army combat veteran from Houston at her first Sturgis Motorcycle Rally in the Black Hills of South Dakota.

Johnson, a member of the Wounded Warrior Project that helps veterans find peace through “motorcycle therapy,” earned her nickname in an unusual way.

Mile after mile on her way to Sturgis last week, riding a Honda 750 Shadow in a tight group with other veterans, she didn’t realize her left turn signal was on.

It was Johnson’s first long motorcycle trip since she got into biking a year ago, and she was so engrossed in the beautiful scenery, the soothing rumble of the bike engines around her and the camaraderie of veterans, that she didn’t notice her bike’s “blinker” never shut off.

(video) --- Jury selection is scheduled for Monday morning at the Miller County courthouse in Texarkana, Ark., for a man whose murder conviction and life sentence were overturned by a higher court.

Twin Peaks defendant asks for postponement of Aug. 27 trial

An attorney for the next Twin Peaks shootout defendant scheduled for trial asked a judge Friday to postpone his trial date, set now for Aug. 27.

Judge Ralph Strother of Waco’s 19th State District Court, who was perturbed by the 11th-hour request, took the matter under advisement and set another hearing for biker Tom Modesto Mendez for Aug. 13.

Mendez, the Bandidos San Antonio chapter president, is represented by Mark Metzger, of Galveston. Mendez is charged with riot, a first-degree felony, in the May 2015 biker brawl at Twin Peaks that left nine dead and 20 injured.

Metzger and prosecutors Staci Scaman, Hilary LaBorde and Gabrielle Massey conferred with Strother in his chambers before Strother emerged to announce the defense requested a continuance in the 3-year-old case.
