Hells Angels gang members plead guilty in shooting

Four of five Hells Angels Motorcycle Club members pled guilty on Jan. 29 for their roles in a fight between themselves and rival gang members in September.

The last of the five has a trial set for March.

The rival gang members were from the Pagan's Motorcycle Club. The Hells Angels and the Pagans are considered two of the larger outlaw motorcycle gangs, along with the Bandidos and the Outlaws. These four are referred to “Big Four” outlaw motorcycle gangs by both the FBI and the Canadian intelligence service, Criminal Intelligence Service Canada.

Richard West, Joseph Paturzo and Nathaniel Villaman each plead guilty to malicious wounding by a mob, according to Augusta County Commonwealth’s Attorney Tim Martin.

“They each have four-year active sentences,” Martin said. “That’s 20 years with 16 suspended. And then one of them that took the offer is a shooter, and he received an eight-year active sentence.”

Supreme Court Sides With Defendant In Motorcycle Search Case — But Two Conservatives Push Back

The court's majority said the search was illegal, but Justice Samuel Alito disagreed while Justice Clarence Thomas questioned whether Supreme Court limitations on illegally obtained evidence even apply to the states.

The Supreme Court ruled overwhelmingly in favor of a criminal defendant Tuesday in holding that a Virginia search of a man's motorcycle — parked in his driveway — was unconstitutional.

Nonetheless, the court's two most conservative justices — Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito — laid out a divergent pair of visions for restricting legal rights against police searches: one that would limit people's protections against illegal searches conducted by state and local police and one that would provide less protection under the Fourth Amendment than any other current justice believes exists.

Alleged motorcycle gang member accused of knocking man out at the Eagles Nest

VIRGINIA BEACH — An alleged Street Wolvez motorcycle gang member is accused of knocking out a man at the Eagles Nest Rockin’ Country Bar.

Thirty-year-old Shelton Lafee “Bronx” Feemster, of the 500 block of Liberty Court in Virginia Beach, was arrested on Sept. 7 and charged with malicious wounding and participating in gang activity, both of which are felony offenses.


The charges stem from a fight that allegedly happened on Dec. 3, 2016 at the bar, located at 1723 Parkview Drive in Chesapeake.

Police believe the fight happened around 2 a.m. when two men approached a group of about five alleged Street Wolvez gang members and began talking to them. One witness said that Feemster came out of no where and hit the victim in the head, knocking him unconscious, according to documents filed in Virginia Beach Circuit Court.
