*** Tenants claim landlord has hired bikers from The Forbidden Ones to force them out of their apartments in Brooklyn, NY.
*** An association of motorcycle clubs and 78 individual bikers have filed a federal lawsuit claiming violation of civil rights against the Las Vegas and North Las Vegas police departments:
In papers filed Monday in U.S. District Court in Las Vegas, an attorney representing members of the Mongols and other clubs allege that law enforcement pressured bars and hotels in Las Vegas to cancel events with members of the Mongols and the Vagos. Police also improperly detained a member of the Stray Cats group; defamed a member of the Bandidos biker group who was fired from his job as a paramedic; and falsely arrested another Bandidos member, the lawsuit alleges.
*** Several suspected members and associates of the Bandidos are arrested for their alleged roles in attacking rival bikers for wearing unapproved colors in El Paso, TX: "law enforcement officers have said that the Bandidos Motorcycle Club is the dominant outlaw motorcycle gang in the El Paso region."
*** Reputed Hells Angels member arrested after three years on the lam outside Montreal, QB Canada: "he will reportedly be charged with murder, gangsterism and drug trafficking."
*** The FBI arrested twenty suspected Hells Angels members and associates in raids across the Carolinas following a two-year investigation: the "91-count indictment alleges that the members and associates of the York County-based Hells Angels group engaged in narcotics distribution, arson, trafficking in stolen property, money laundering, extortion, prostitution and firearms violations."
