Eight members of Vagos, a rival motorcycle gang of the Hells Angels, were arrested yesterday in a massive roundup of alleged motorcycle gangsters -- dubbed "Operation Sand Castle" -- believed to be involved in a July brawl at Rio Lomas Beach in Bullhead City.

On July 18, police received reports of a large brawl happening on the beach. At the end, several people, including some teenagers, were "severely assaulted," but nobody wanted to cooperate with police out of fear of the motorcycle gang.


The Department of Public Safety's Gang and Immigration Intelligence Team Enforcement Mission took over the investigation and were able to link Vagos to the beat down.

Dale Warren Smith, 52, of Mohave Valley; Shawn Patrick Bailey, 35, of Bullhead City; Shawn Lee Muncy, 41, of Bullhead City; Gabriel Timothy Nader Jr., 25, of Golden Valley; and Robert George Keller III, 35, of Bullhead City, were the aggressors in an attack on several teens and adults at the beach, a Department of Public Safety spokesman says.

They were each booked on charges of
rioting-participating in a criminal street gang and aggravated assault.

Others arrested in connection to the brawl are Jeffrey Daniel Woods, 53, of Lake Havasu City, was booked on charges of misconduct involving weapons and possession of drug paraphernalia and Nick Bernard Prano, 54, of Lake Havasu City, was booked on charges of possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug paraphernalia.

Also connected to the gang is Daniel Michael Macdonald, 52, of Bullhead City. He was booked on charges of misconduct with weapons, possession of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and insurance fraud.

DPS says the men were each targets of separate investigations, which were accelerated following the brawl on the beach.

Vagos, you may recall, were involved in a shootout with their rival gang, the Hells Angels. More than 50 shots were fired, netting precisely zero deaths.

That shootout resulted in the arrest of 27 Hells Angels members.

http://www.topix.com/forum/cit... seems like the Hells angels are usually at war with women and children of the USA. I wonder why so many hells angels collect child porn harm rape molest and murder women and children in the USA ?

NO ONE talks about how the 81 raised hundreds if not thousands of toys for needy kids this weekend and the last here in AZ. I know because I was at two of their events. What have you giant piles done to help needy kids out this season? The answer is most likely NOTHING. James King why don't you write about the good 81 does? I can almost guarantee that 81 has done a whole lot more for needy kids this season than your fake tabloid has. Your biased journalism is insulting. To be honest...your entire tabloid is insulting. You write with this snide sense about you. Extremely arrogant prep school mentality. I can smell it in your articles. It just amazes me how this state's press won't cover any of the positive events that the 81 has. Everyone just wants to focus on the bad. Lame. I'm proud to say I attended the events these past couple of weekends. 81 got me off my ass, out in the streets, and helping families in need and kids who want toys but can't afford them...most of them being reservation kids.

I'll continue to be a supporter...

PS: People say shit about the 81 just like they did the Masons. Now look at Freemasonry. You can't travel into a town without seeing the compass and square. Think about it...

NO 3 holed freak scares me

These comments are so childish.

Its clear hells angel;s are just pathetic freaks that harm rape molest and murderwomen and children all over the USA or collect child porn.

"That shootout resulted in the arrest of 27 Hells Angels members."Huh? This type of 'journalism' should be used when reporting about Jay Dobyns, the ATF and Arpaio (whatever spews from their mouths should either be scrutinized thoroughly, or posted on facebook ). Mr. King is not unique with the use of 'selective' reporting, unfortunately very much the norm. Yep, there were 27 arrests, BUT HOW MANY WERE CHARGED with anything? Regarding the 27 arrests, you report all 27 were HA members. Of the five that were charged with anything out of the 27 arrested, are even all five of those members? (You do know that a prospect is NOT a member, I trust) I have yet to find any credible facts anywhere that defines those arrested as actual members of HA (i.e., court records, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, etc.) It is fact that at the time of those 27 arrests, not all 27 were members. Just as with this article reporting that eight Vago members were arrested; in the paragraph mentioning number eight, it clearly states "also connected'. Connected/associate/known associate does not a member make. Yeah, I know, sure sounds good in the headlines and also justifies paychecks for the pathetic LEOs, but sure would be unique to have a real journalist report on this, or for that matter anything. I know, the cops, the Feds, the ATF, the DEA, the CIA - they never lie, never cover up anything, never turn on their own (or kill their own) so why would a 'journalist' question and/or research anything that is quoted from those entities? Read the initial court papers filed (51 pages) by Jay Dobyns' lawyers on behalf of Dobyns who is suing the ATF. for $4M. Dobyns now a former ATF agent seems to think his former employer does not play fair, and has not treated him properly, hence the lawsuit. I am not a Dobyns fan in the least, however if just one of the 87 accusations in those initial court papers have any merit whatsoever, then these HA guys don't deserve media coverage, they don't deserve investigations, raids or anything else - but, the ATF certainly does. And if there is no merit whatsoever to Dobyns' allegations then why would the ATF allow him to carry out such 'important' stings, or for that matter even employ such a person? If allegations are true as described in Dobyns' lawsuit, those ATF guys, they are the real 'thugs' and 'gangs' the ones to be afraid of, the real ones that should be getting investigated by SOME body and the ones that should be getting news coverage and be barraged with questions every time they open their mouths. They put those big-girl HA guys to shame with their brand of evil. My point? Just pitching a bitch because I have not seen an impartial, non-intimidated, intelligent, honest to himself & to his readers, dedicated to get the real facts, reporter/journalist in many years. Probably haven't seen one since printed media and the corps that own them care only about $$ and have little interest in informing anyone what the real stories are and who the real threats are. But, that's o.k. - NewTimes is in the mix and appears to be nothing more than a FaceBook clone. Why would we sheeple need to know the truth anyway?

I think King would be afraid not that he's going to get a beating, But that he'll find out all his pre-conceived opinions are wrong and he'd actually like the guys and have to report the truth. And the truth is If you treat the guys with respect you'll be treated with respect and treated well and have a great time, if you act like a fool you'll be treated as such also. But why should it be any other way? And if you don't have something good to say then don't say anything, because fabricating lies about the club and it's members is a display of disrespect, and they won't really take that. If you know how to act, aren't a mooch or exploiter you'll be just fine. Be yourself . If being yourself reveals a genuine good standup person great, If not DON'T GO!

Laughed at online for the last ten years. Always the keyboard commandos. Never seen him challenged or laughed at in person. Mr King or pussy why don't you cancel one of your nail appointments or spa treatments and take Sonny up or the HA on their invite. Sounds like they will welcome your boyfriend also. Take a break from getting your stories second hand and get your facts from a real icon you pussy.

you should drink their pee to while your at it, and eat their ass droppings and turds and dingle berries. hell why to fuck one of the macho bikers in the ass to? or stab both 2 tires on their bikes. that would be really funny. angels with flat tires. where is a real gangster when you need one? scratch the bikes gas tank death head with a big sharp butcher knife. pour sand in the gas tank. write gang graffiti on the clubhouse. ride by them and flip them the bird finger. out run them on your bike on crowded city streets. run them off the road with a big truck. call 911 on them. vomit on the support booth t shirts at a bike run.

I don't think that you're rich. I think that you're making it up. Writing a single book does not make anybody rich. Writing a book that has limited appeal and which is old news at this point brings in even less riches. I believe that you've suffered enough losses in your life to cancel out the value of any money that you've made. You wonder if being a rat was worth it all. The government who paid you along the way doesn't care about you now, if they even cared about you to begin with. Maybe the people that you ratted out care about you now, I don't know for sure about that, but I'd guess that even those people pay you no attention. In the end, nobody likes a rat.

James is the blog guy! He's not hate-worthy. Why do you libtards always use the word hate? Get a fucking thesaurus! If you can't afford to buy one, use use a free web-based service. The english language contains many words which you can use to distinguish between hate, dislike, annoyance, disagreement.. Hate is not a one size fits all word. You can be a libtard, but you do not have to be a retard.

James King can bring all the people he wants to our clubhouse if it makes him feel more secure. he can even hire a gun toting 3rd degree black belt in karate security guard if it will help him feel safer from us. nobody said he needs to come alone. bring 10, 20 guys and girls we dont care. the more the merrier! the Mesa Clubhouse is at 153 south Labron in Mesa AZ..

Geraldo Rivera had the New York City Hells Angels on his old tv show and he never got beat up by us. he did get his nose broke by those clean cut Nazis though. but they were not my Hells Angels Brothers. talk show guy Phil Donahue had the Hells Angels on his old tv show years ago and he did not get beat up either. the Hells Angels in Fresno California had a toy tun last week and nobody got beat up there either. stop by the Phoenix Hells Angels clubhouse at 147 west Mojave st in south Phoenix Arizona and ask for me Boomer Baker. i am a Hells Angels member. i am 72 years old and i promise not to beat anybody up. and i dont do drugs either. your safe with me Pit Boss or James King. are you guys scared of an old 72 year old man? if you are my guest you have nothing to worry about. my Brothers do not disrespect another Brothers guest when they come to visit us. thats a big time no no in our world.

Dear PIT BOSS you sound like a pussy to. how do you know they are all methed up as you say? do you know any of them? ever met any of them? lots of people males and females visit the clubhouse often and nothing bad ever happens to them. not all HAs are drug users. some are and some are not just like everyday society. besides they wouldn't invite james king over there then stomp his ass. they would get arrested then he would write a story about his ass whooping. now does that any any sense? i never read any where that the HA hated james king.

Sure, I'm sure you guys just want him to come down to an MC club to "talk" to him, right? Nothing to see here, just want to set the record straight? Yeah, ok. I think you Hells Angels need to stop worrying so much what a local blogger says about you and concentrate on not having shoot outs with other gangs that put innocent people's lives at stake.

And by the way, you're a grown man who probably doesn't have a job and hangs around other dudes for safety in numbers. And I'm the pussy?
