Trio of Abilene Bandido bikers accused of violently robbing rival club member

ABILENE, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - A trio of Bandido bikers was arrested for allegedly violently robbing a rival club member who drove through their 'turf' while wearing the rival club's vest. 

Daniel Machado, Justin Aldava, and Jesse Trevino were all arrested Wednesday and charged with Aggravated Robbery in connection to the incident that took place in July of 2018. They have all been released from jail after posting a $150,000 bond each.

Court documents state the victim was riding near the Bandido Motorcycle clubhouse on the 1300 block of Butternut Street when he noticed three bikers - later identified as Machado, Alvada, and Trevino - leave the clubhouse and start to follow him. 

He sped up, but the documents say the trio kept going, kicking him in the back when they reached him and eventually cutting him off and stopping his path, forcing him to turn into a small parking lot

Panhandlers donate hundreds of toys to hospital

Stuffed animals go to children in emergency, X-ray departments

Members of the Southeast Alaska Panhandlers Motorcycle Club rumbled their way up to Bartlett Regional Hospital on Friday, hundreds of toys in tow.

The toys were the result of the club’s 24th annual Toy Run, during which members of the club ride through town and collect toy donations at the Douglas Fire Station. Justin Papenbrock, the secretary for the club, said they didn’t have quite as many riders as usual this year due to weather but that didn’t dampen the spirits of people looking to donate toys.

“It was a little rainy, so we didn’t get the following that we usually get,” Papenbrock said, “but people made up for it fairly well at the fire house, with walk-ins and people showing up, still showing good support. That was good. We always cross our fingers for better weather with a larger pack, but we’re always happy to get what we get.”

Awaiting trial, ex-Outlaws boss rails on snitches, invokes Drew Peterson case

There’s a patch worn by supporters of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club that sums up the sentiment of biker gangs toward informants. “Snitches are a dying breed,” it says.

These days, former Chicago Outlaws boss Orville “Orvie” Cochran, once one of Chicago’s most-wanted fugitives, is worried about informants turning on him. In a letter to a judge, he has expressed concern that someone might try to frame him as he sits in jail in Wisconsin awaiting trial in a racketeering case that accuses him and five of his onetime biker brothers of murder and mayhem.

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.
