Charges Filed Against Five Men in Hells Angels Shootout

As is always the case, we must issue the following disclaimer before writing anything about the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club: The purpose of this article is not to provide a forum for Hells Angels and their enemies to bicker over who is a child molester, who beats women, and who cooks the best meth.

That said, charges have been filed against five men after a shootout between the Hells Angels and Vagos motorcycle clubs on Saturday.


Those charged include 44-year-old John Anthony Bernard, 39-year-old Kiley Steve Hill, 36-year-old Robert Edward Kittredge, 46-year-old Bruce Andrew Schweigert, Sr., and 47-year-old Larry Dean Scott, Jr.

Authorities say that on Saturday the two gangs had a bit of a spat in Chino Valley, just north of Prescott.

The Yavapai County Sheriff's Office got several calls around 12:15 p.m. Saturday saying shots were fired in the 2600 block of Yuma Drive.

When deputies arrived on the scene, they immediately began arresting bikers.

Cops say at least 50 shots were fired in the brouhaha but nobody was killed.

There were five injuries, though, none of which were life-threatening.

In total, police made 27 arrests on charges of attempted homicide, aggravated assault, endangerment, participation in a criminal street gang, and unlawful assembly.

Of the 27 arrested, nine have been released and only five have been formally charged. 

One gang member managed to slip away in an unknown vehicle before police arrived. That gangster is believed to be injured and cops are in the process of trying to track him down.

It's unclear what started the fight. Both the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office and the Yavapai County Attorney's Office are being tight-lipped about the whole thing. The county attorney's office told us yesterday that any further information about the shootout would have to be gathered through a public records request.

The men charged in the shootout have each been charged with attempted homicide, aggravated assault, endangerment and participating in a criminal street gang.

They are being held at the Yavapai County Detention Center on $75,000 bond.

I don't care who shot who..it doesn't make any sense that all of those arrested are from one club. All that means is that the other club was infiltrated by cops.

im starting to think all these 1%er clubs all have rabies or something and they are rabid. why dont all 1%er clubs learn to get along and stand together against the pigs? i mean aren't the pigs the enemy to 1%ers? so why fight each other? that helps the pigs out and the pigs laugh at you guys for being so stupid and ignorant for fighting and killing each other. they want you guys to do that. all you 1%ers are like puppets on stings. and it screws up making 1%er money when you all fight each other. its like a black poison cloud hangs over all 1%er clubs. its already a very stressful lifestyle why make it more stressful by fighting? a smart business man knows this, a pint of blood cost more than a pot of gold. violence between 1%ers cost money and means you guys are losing money and brothers by all this violence and killing. quit the violence stick together against the pigs and make lots of money. thats how to piss off the man and get rich doing it.have some righteous class like the old 1%ers did back in the day.

Next time maybe police can take ....oh lets say 2 hours longer and maybe by then they'd have shot 500 rounds and maybe then actually rid a handful of them. (all would be best!!)Yes, maybe....please?! LMAO

PS - to the writer ..... I LOVE how you prefaced this article!! I know you were unable to say the full truth but isn't it funny how 'tough' all these guys think they are (WHEN THEY'RE ALL TOGETHER) but put them out on their own, just 1 by his lonesome and he shrivels up from 3" to 2".

No HA "gets religion"as do the majority of citizens who claim to have found God so the parole board lets them out.

HA does their time and picks up where they left off.

As far as AZ, the damn Hispanics commit the MAJORITY of rapes, murders, robberys and assaults than anyone. Gripe about something real, rather than something ya read in some book, spiced-up to make sales.

There are over 7000 HA, worldwide, yet less than 50 in the BHC, which proves they are not the crime commiters one is made to believe.

AZ's jails and prisons MAJORITY inmates are Hispanics that your public glorifies more than any other group and protects them under the guise of protecting their civil rights because they have a right to be here. Illegal "aliens" and crime commited by them is what puts AZ in the national spotlight all the time

Anywhere an HA crew is the crime is almost non-existant. You guys that complain and jab HA are legends in your own minds and know, for a fact ya would not say the same thing to any of them face-to-face.

Just a bunch of keyboard cunts that are too insecure of their own lives. ...or have no lives

What a joke.

The gang that couldn't shoot straight!

Just finished reading "No Angels" and even at 50% true, these Arizona Angels are more interested in the "soap opera" drama of being an Angel.

To think that they can't even be effective in the field makes me wonder what would happen if an organized rival tried to take them out!!!

Look for one of the Angels to rat out the others. They always "get religion" behind bars!

Johnny Angel Palomar now 71 yrs old is still alive and well living in Arizona. he moved here in 99 with Sonny Barger and Boomer Baker from Oakland. Johnny is Sonnys best friend in life. we are the ones jay dobyns failed to get. old timers are smart.

you sound insecure with yourself. now you are following that other guys comment around.you got punked out. now your trying to out do him. are you still living at home with your mommy to? seems to me the solos angels were following the angels. i mean the angels have only been around since 1948. all 1%er clubs follow the 81 they just dont like to admit it. now your following them in books and on line. your really an 81 groupie to.

The HA ambushed the Vagos...really chickinshit. Then they got their asses handed to them. That's why only HA are charged.

I remember ex Charleston South Carolina Hells Angels Barry Barry Mayson got religion and became a born again christian. he wrote a book about it and was a biker preacher. he helped a few ex 81 members find their way to the lord. he died last year. there are more ex Hells Angels Christians out there than you know.

No Angel was a great book....The Hells Angels will lie every time they open their mouths and say that the entire Black Biscuit undercover op was out of line. It didn't get the convictions it should have, but now everyone can read and understand what goes on in this "club" and see this gang for what they really are. Thank you Jay Dobyns.

You really aren't the sharpest knife in the drawer are you there Mr. Vagos supporter. Tell me why not one Vago has been arrested in Arizona? I could give a rat's azz about the HA, I am just a local rider who hates rats, but you can't argue with the facts. Why would they ride by the HA clubhouse unless they wanted to provoke an incident? If you keep biting a rotweiller's tail, it will eventually bite back.

Fred

And did you ever think they got their asses handed to them because they were trained law enforcement? You have to be a moron not to figure out what is going on here..

Ohhhhh, yes, thank you Bird for suing the ATF. Thank you for being a pussy. Thank you for bringing those bad boys in the HA to justice and spending more tax dollars in doing such a great job. Black Biscuit did not get the convictions because our judicial system works. It did not get convictions because the ATF, DEA, & FBI bicker and argue among themselves, trying to take credit and wanting more media coverage for doing a crappy job, and trying to justify their income. How many millions were spent on the Black Biscuit fiasco? And with what results? If Black Biscuit was not so pathetic it might be amusing.

jay dobyns loves to make plenty of money for himself off of the hells angels name and brand. you notice that? he tells you they are real bad evil violent guys. but he makes lots of money off of them in books and speeches he does on his talking road tours about crime etc. he is a hypocrite. he has made plenty of money off the hells angels mc. and he deep down inside really liked alot of them guys. his atf buddy's bailed on him and hate him as do the angels. he would have been better off standing by the angels than the cops. the angels will stand by their friends till the death. the cops will not.

GEE AN ATF JAY DOBYNS GROUPIE instead of a HA groupie. what about atf agent billy queen who infiltrated the mongols? what about him? did you read his book to? its called UNDER AND ALONE.whoo its scary man. narks rats and snitches who try to save the world from SIN and on going EVIL on planet earth. good luck with all that ATF. even Jesus hasn't been able to solve that problem yet.

EX Hells Angels tony tait took down more angels working alone as a member of the HA than jay dobyns ever did with the help of 3 or 4 ATF agents. jay is a failure compared to tony tait. tony tait put sonny barger in prison and some of the big boys in Oakland to. read his book if you want a real story. read the book HELLS ANGELS, INTO THE ABYSS BY YVES LAVIGNE it came out in 1997 way before jay was a pimple.

What makes you think Jay Dobyns is telling the truth? Just like politicians always tell the truth? Or everything you read in the paper or see on tv is the truth? Or your boss always tells the truth? What a moron!

I'm not a Vagos supporter, and you sound like an HA supporter, or one of those conspiracy theorists...or maybe the kind of wingnut who claims he was abducted by aliens. Really you just sound like an ignorant simple mind who doesn't know his facts. The Vagos keep getting attacked by the HA in Arizona, just like several months ago at Lazy Harry's bar in Bullhead City. The perpetrator is always the one arrested because they started it. Just like if you attacked me and ended up getting your lights punched out...You would still be the one arrested.

Fred, Cave Creek HA president Daniel "Hoover" Seybert was assasinated by a close range small caliber gunshot to the head in the parking lot of Bridgette's Last Laugh. He was surrounded by many of his Hells Angels brothers, who miraculously /unbelievably didn't see a thing. The HA present know who shot him....It was most likely one of their own. Your posts here are nonsense.

Fred
Fred

Hey as far as I am concerned they can both pound sand but that isn't the point. The point is there have been numerous incidents between these two groups, and only the HA have been arrested. A highly respected former President of the HA from AZ was gunned down and that murder was never solved a while back, I think in 2003.. Who can do this stuff with impunity? There is only one answer....

Prescott Pete

You Hells Angles cheerleaders are something else. Always ready and willing to get down on your knees and service the HA gang members who you worship.

Prescott Pete

So the only way the HA loses a gunfight, even if the HA started it with a cowardly ambush, is if there are LE on the other side? I don't think so....nice story, but it's a poor excuse to bail the HA out of losing what they started...They were most likely snorting crank before they did their cowardly attack, and couldn't hit a barn. They started this and got what they deserved. I hope the Vagos walk, since they were the one's attacked without warning.

sorry but Mesa Arizona Hells Angels Bob Johnson was Jay Dobyns sponsor in the club. not Bobby. Mesa bob is no longer a member of the club. why? he quit out of embarrassment of bringing an atf agent into the club. this black biscuit poser dont have his facts straight. thats what he gets for reading a book wrote by a pig cop instead of being a part of the real thing. he is a typical coward wanna bee cop keyboard commando.

MARK

this black biscuit crew guy sounds like a jay dobyns book groupie. are you a fag to? you read a book and then in your insecure mind you are now are a fantasy atf agent wanna bee and a friend of jay and a jay groupie. lol your funny. and i see below in your other fantasy dream world you are now pretending to be a solos angels nomads Arizona member to. are you like 14 years old or what? those guy dont even exist in Arizona or the whole USA. your an idiot! do the real thing or shut your yap!

MARK

if this black biscuit crew guy knows of a murder by some guy named bobby reinstra he needs to report it to his local police department. be a good citizen and report it sir. from what you write you seem to have been a witness in a murder and are with holding evidence in an unsolved murder. you need to call the police and tell them what you know. be a good American and do the right thing or shut up.

Hey Bobby Reinstra, First off , you have in fact murdered someone "for the club" and you do have a Filthy Few patch. Stating otherwise here just makes you look stupid and a liar. As far as you claiming that you are a leader and Jay Dobyns a follower....You sure got led around by the nose by Jay and his crew and swallowed everything they fed you hook, line and sinker. And Jay did prospect under you, so why lie about that? You couldn't tell the truth if it hit you in the face.

most of those tattoos on jay dobyns arms were paid for with atf money while he was undercover. but most of it went to mac mckay a Tucson Hells Angels member who owns a tattoo shop where jay got inked. even jay used the atf for his own gain by getting those tattoos with atf money. more of your tax dollars at work.

I was there

he was also a meth crank speed tweeker. i know i was there and i seen him snorting up lines with pops. thats why the case fell apart. an atf agent is not allowed to do drugs while undercover.

jay dobyns likes to tell you the HA are after him and his wife and kids. but he does a book signing tour out in the wide open at a barnes and noble book store in north phoenix AZ off happy valley road just a few miles from HA sonny bargers home. nothing happened to him that day. i see jay riding his bike around gates pass west of Tucson on speedway blvd. nothing happens to him and plenty of the HA see him to. nothing ever happens to him. but he uses that fear of the 81 thing to help him in his lawsuit against his ex atf friends.

been_here_b4

Sleepy; you are so correct and I would further like to mention that the pussy Dobyns is suing the ATF and if successful it will be our tax dollars which will further supplement this jerk's income. One reason he is suing is because the ATF would not supply him with protection after his HA detail. This is AFTER he writes a book about it, AFTER he appears on talk shows and does interviews with all media, which did nothing but make him a larger target to anyone. He has become nothing but a whiner and a drama queen!

first of all there used to be a rock band made up of all Hells Angels members called the filthy few band and they were musicians not killers. also alot of 81 members wear a filthy few patch and if all of them had killed somebody there would be alot of unsolved murders all over the USA and world. and thats not only stupid but its impossible for there to be that many unsolved murders. the pigs would be very busy trying to solve them all if a filthy few patch meant every member wearing one was a killer. its ridiculous
