Man wearing motorcycle club T-shirt attacked near local bar

ELM MOTT, Texas (KWTX) Authorities are investigating after an Elm Mott man who was wearing a T-shirt bearing the name of a motorcycle club affiliated with the Bandidos was attacked and seriously injured, evidently after leaving a local bar.

McLennan County deputies found Eusebio Ramon early Sunday morning lying in a pool of blood, Sheriff’s Lt. Kevin Ferguson said.

Ramon told deputies he was jumped by a number of men on East Long Street, just a block away from MacDaddy’s Pub at 101 East Long. St. in Elm Mott.

He had injuries to his face, lacerations, contusions, and was covered in blood, authorities said.

He was wearing the motorcycle club T-shirt when he was attacked, but the attackers ripped off the shirt during the assault.

He told authorities he thinks the T-shirt was the reason he was attacked, Ferguson said.

Ramon was taken to a local hospital where he was treated and later released.

Fight outside Sonora bar leads to three arrests on battery charges

Three Sonora residents were arrested early Monday after an argument at a downtown Sonora bar escalated into a brawl on South Washington Street, during which a 57-year-old man sustained head injuries.

According to Sonora Police Department logs, at least six people may have been involved in the fight, but bystanders could identify no more than the three suspects and the victim, Sonora Chief of Police Turu VanderWiel said.

VanderWiel said officers are gathering additional bystander and witness statements and seeking surveillance footage.

The fight began as an argument in Zane’s Iron Horse Lounge in downtown Sonora, VanderWiel said. Witnesses said the victim had made “disrespectful comments to other patrons in the bar.”

“At some point that person was pushed or escorted out of the bar, and then the physical altercation ensued directly after,” he said.

Attorneys argue over Devil's Diciples sentencing issues

Federal prosecutors argued Monday that potential life sentences are warranted for former members of a Clinton Township-based motorcycle club primarily convicted of racketeering, drug and other offenses.

 

 

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Saima Mohsin and Eric Strauss contend the ex-members of the Devil’s Diciples Motorcycle Club were part of a criminal enterprise that sold well beyond the 500 grams of methamphetamine they were convicted of selling, and that they committed violent acts, including murder and attempted murder, that should put them behind bars for the rest of their lives.

 

 

“The Devil’s Diciple’s encouraged drug use, proliferated it and supplied it,” Mohsin told Judge Robert Cleland in U.S. District Court in Port Huron during an approximately three-hour hearing. “Using methamphetamine was at the very core of this organization.”

Threats, spit prompt charges for alleged biker gang member

WILKES-BARRE — An intoxicated member of a biker gang threatened his father with a meat tenderizer and spit on police officers as they arrested him Sunday night, according to police.

Justin Martin, 30, of Rear 291 Parrish St., repeatedly threatened officers and warned he would see them again when they didn’t have their badges on, police said.

Officers responded to Martin’s home around 10:25 p.m. Sunday to a report of a fight between Martin and his father, Frank Maloney Sr., who told police Martin was out of control and needed to be arrested.

Another man, Frank Maloney Jr., told police Martin asked him for marijuana or cocaine. When Maloney Jr. told Martin to sober up, Martin began slapping him repeatedly, police said.

Maloney Jr. also reported that Martin threatened kill him and that he would “get my boys after you” — a reference to his membership in the Pagans Motorcycle Club, according to police.

Mongols affilliates planned Bakersfield attack on Hells Angels days in advance of fundraiser, reports say

Two days before a motorcycle wash fundraiser in Bakersfield organized by the local chapter of the Hells Angels, Ricardo Viera received a text message from an affiliate of the Mongols, another decades-old motorcycle club — and one of the Angels' biggest rivals.

"Light-em-up," read the message sent from the phone of Eliseo Ray Miranda, recently released court documents say. He also texted Viera, a "patched over" Mongols member, a photograph of an advertisement for the event.

On May 5, Miranda and two other Mongols affiliates — Christopher Clay Wilson and Arturo Desiderio — arrived at the motorcycle wash in the 3200 block of Buck Owens Boulevard in one vehicle, according to court documents. Viera, armed with a pump-action pistol grip shotgun, drove separately to the event and parked near them.

Augello attorney seeking Kauffman suicide note, informant | Kauffman Case

MAYS LANDING — A lawyer for the man charged with murder in the 2012 killing of April Kauffman requested Dr. James Kauffman's suicide note as well as the confidential informant in the case.

Alleged Pagans motorcycle gang leader Ferdinand "Freddy" Augello, 62, of Upper Township, appeared before Judge Bernard DeLury on Thursday for a status conference in Atlantic County Superior Court. 

“One of our primary issues or concerns right now is obtaining Dr. Kauffman’s suicide note,” public defender Mary Linehan said, adding the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office has said it does not have the note and that the Hudson County jail’s position is that its investigation is still open.

“We’ll also be filing a motion to reveal a confidential informant,” she said. “Although this is public information that is already out there. It’s been in the media as well.”

When the Angels came to town

The Hells Angels made Healdsburg their playground in the late 1960s

Wander the tree-lined downtown streets of Healdsburg today and listen. Do you hear the vibrant tunes from the Tuesday evening concerts?

Splashing water from the Plaza fountain, or shoppers and the hubbub of commerce?

If you lived here in the 1960s, you might have heard a different sound — the loud and distinctive rumble of V-twin engines and straight pipes. The Hells Angels were roaring into town. Again.
