A member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club was arrested this weekend after cutting off a Scottsdale police detective who was trailing several Hells Angels during an Arizona Bike Week event.

Bruce Schweigert, one of the seven Hells Angels bikers who beat charges from a 2010 shootout with Vagos bikers in Chino Valley, drove a sedan sideways in front of the detective, who was following two bikers and a truck full of people "known to be associated" with the Hells Angels, according to court documents obtained by New Times.

The detective, who was investigating "outlaw motorcycle gangs and their associates" at the Cyclefest 2013 event at WestWorld in Scottsdale, spotted the red truck full of Hells Angels members on a road outside WestWorld.

The truck was being "escorted" by two motorcyclists, one of whom the detective identified as a known member of the Hells Angels.

"As I attempted to follow the truck and the motorcycles, a gray-colored sedan exited a parking area and stopped perpendicular within the roadway impeding my movement eastbound," the detective writes in a probable-cause statement. "I recognized the tactic as that commonly employed by outlaw motorcycle gangs to prevent others from following their membership."

The detective didn't note whether he was driving a marked or unmarked vehicle, but he saw that the driver of the sedan was wearing Hells Angels garb, so he U-turned and started following him.

After running a stop sign, and making an illegal turn onto Pima Road, the detective pulled over the sedan, which was being driven by Schweigert, 49.

Schweigert had a seven-inch military-style knife holstered on his hip, which he's not allowed to have as a convicted felon, according to court documents.

He also had a bag of weed and a pipe, but the detective confirmed he had a medical-marijuana card.

Schweigert was arrested on charges of unlawful possession of a weapon and obstructing a public thoroughfare.

We recognized Schweigert's name from the 2010 shootout with Vagos, in which at least 50 shots were fired, although no one was seriously injured.

Charges ended up being dropped against the seven Hells Angels charged in the shooting, as one of the Angels' attorneys told New Times last year that the only direct witness to the confrontation between the gangs immediately before the shooting happened to be a paid confidential informant -- a fact that wasn't presented to him or the other defense attorneys for quite some time.

To those who are blaming the Laestadian Luthern religion, STOP. She chose to be part of the religion, and she chose to kill her baby. It was her choice. She never talked to the church about killing it. She chose to herself. She is dealing her own issues, and so those nasty comments out there have got to stop. I understand that it is a tragedy, but what can you do about it now? Nothing. So quit that bad talking about the religion, because they never had anything to do about it. I don't care if they do not believe in birth control and condoms, it was still her choice not the church's. To Nina and her family- you all are in my thoughts and prayers. Dont let those nasty talkers make things worse. Continue believing in God and keep praying. God will help you along the way. Many thoughts and prayers go out your way!

Sparta, NJ police: Hells Angels 'prospect' arrested
OFF THE WIRE
Source: dailyrecord.com

New Jersey -~Sparta
SPARTA--A Sussex County man described by police as a Hells Angels prospect wasarrested in connection with an incident last month when an off-duty officer spotted him riding his motorcycle while wearing a 16-inch knife, police said. 

Police discovered Sean Sweeney, 39, of Fredon, had a previous criminal conviction out of Bergen County and during an investigation of the Aug. 19 incident, he was found to be prohibited from possessing any weapons . 

On that day, Sparta Officer Andrew Petrucelli responded to the area of Sparta Junction when an off-duty Byram Township officer reported he was driving behind a black Harley Davidson and the driver was wearing a large knife.

Petrucelli stopped the bike and discovered Sweeney was wearing a special forces weapon--a Delta Force Explorer knife in a sheath on his left hip, said Sgt. John-Paul Beebe.

"It looked like half a sword,'' Beebe said. "(Petrucelli) saw the rider was wearing it on the side. He didn't know what it was, but knew it wasn't correct.''
The knife, which was 16 inches long with a ten-inch blade, was confiscated. 
Sweeney, who was wearing a jacket with a Hells Angels prospect patch, was issued a motor vehicle summons for not wearing a proper safety helmet and released, Beebe said.

Further investigation revealed Sweeney was convicted for distributing heroin in Bergen County approximately 10 years ago and was prohibited to possess weapons, Beebe said. Additional information on that case was not available Friday.
Sparta police charged Sweeney with fourth-degree illegal possession of a weapon and fourth-degree being a person prohibited from possessing weapons. Sweeney was contacted through his attorney, advised of the charges and given a date to 
turn himself in, Beebe said. 

When he failed to do so, Sparta police obtained a warrant and detectives Terrence Mulligan and Sgt. John Schanstra found Sweeney at a Hamburg home on Sept. 1. He was taken into custody without incident and lodged in the Sussex County Jail in lieu of $5,000 with no 10 percent option.

The laws concerning felons in posession of weapons are designed to allow LEOs to harass them. The relevant item in the article is that the officer claimed that the sedan blocked him from proceeding but that he had to make a U-turn to pull the driver over. What I really question is how the officer could read the clothing that the driver was wearing. A more plausible telling of this tale would have the officer admitting he was looking for a reason to harass citizens who were not committing any crimes at all and when the driver of the sedan pulled out onto the street alone, he found his chance. There is no legal definition of a military style weapon unless it is a military issued bayonet. Other than that all knives are simply variations on a design.

So now a convicted felon isn't allowed to have a knife?  What makes a knife a "military style" rather than a "kitchen style" knife.  Are "military style" knives more dangerous than "kitchen style" knives?   What if he had a Ginsu knife that he bought off of QVC?  Would that be illegal?

What happens when a convicted felon goes to a restaurant and there is a knife on the table?  Does the felon inform the waiter that he is not permitted to be in possession of the table knife and ask for its removal.  Does the felon then ask the waiter to cut up his steak for him?  Or does he just stick a fork into the whole steak and bite off one small piece at a time?

How is a felon supposed to prepare dinner at home if he can't have a knife?  Is he supposed to just pick apart a baked chicken with his fingers?  How does he cut up a birthday cake?  Must he butter his toast with a spoon?  Can he only eat small foods or foods that do not require cutting?

Perhaps there are definitions of permitted knives versus unpermitted knives?  Sharp knives "bad," dull knives "good"?  Kitchen knives "bad," butter knives "good"?  What if his kitchen knives aren't very sharp?  Are they then ok to possess?  What if his butter knife is sharp?  Would that be an "military style butter knife"?

Another interesting story with a point 

The Guy only had a half a sword on for officer petrucelli .I guess he could tell Sparta Officer Andrew Petrucelli didn't like his ass. 


I bet this Sweeny guy has a whole sword on when he spends his time with 
officer Gerardi, a 24-year veteran of the Fairfield police. 


Off-duty N.J. cop is charged with lying to police about fight involving biker gang
Published: Tuesday, March 27, 2012, 7:45 AM Updated: Tuesday, March 27, 2012, 9:05 AM
By Joe Moszczynski/The Star-Ledger 

Fairfield police
A Fairfield police officer has been with second-degree official misconduct and third-degree hindering apprehension.
HARDYSTON — The off-duty veteran police officer should have known better, authorities say, when he walked into a Sussex County bar with two known associates of the Hells Angels motorcycle gang.
That was Anthony Gerardi Jr.’s first mistake, they said.
His second, authorities allege, was lying to officers who were called to Tony’sRestaurant and Pizza Bar in Hardyston after a nasty brawl that January night that left one patron seriously injured.
After a two-month investigation, Gerardi, a 24-year veteran of the Fairfield police force, was arrested Friday on charges of official misconduct, hindering prosecution and failing to perform his duty as a public servant.
“That night, Gerardi had the choice to be a police officer or solidify his associationwith the Hells Angels,” Sussex County First Assistant Prosecutor Gregory Mueller said yesterday.“He made the wrong choice.”
Authorities say the 48-year-old Gerardi identified himself as an officer that night and then gave Hardyston police false information, saying he didn’t know who had struck the patron in the head with a beer mug. Gerardi also denied his two companions, Sean Sweeney, a Hells Angels member, and Bernard Krynicki, a recruit, had anything to do with it, authorities said.
But video surveillance cameras that captured the Jan. 12 melee indicated something different, authorities said. The off-duty officer saw everything.
“He was only two feet away from them,” Mueller said.“He had a front-row seat.”
Gerardi went to the Route 94 bar with Krynicki and Sweeney, whose girlfriend was celebrating her birthday that night. Later, Krynicki had words with a patron, then hit him in the head with a beer mug from behind, prosecutors said, and Sweeney, wearing a Hells Angels cap, then tried to punch the patron’s wife.
When police arrived, Gerardi gave them false information “in an effort to protect both Krynicki and Sweeney from prosecution,” the prosecutor’s office said in a news release.
Krynicki, 45, of North Arlington, and Sweeney, 42, of Hamburg, were arrested two weeks after the incident and charged with aggravated assault and weapons offenses. Krynicki posted bail, while Sweeney was released on a summons.
Gerardi, who faces up to 10 years in prison if convicted on the top charge, has been released on his own recognizance. He could not be reached for comment Monday. Fairfield police announced the arrest but referred all questions to Mueller’s office.
A corporal in the Essex County department’s 29-member patrol division, Gerardi has been suspended with pay pending the outcome of the criminal case and any administrative charges that may follow, according to a statement on the Fairfield Police Department’s website. Gerardi is eligible for retirement next March. A conviction could cost him

The laws concerning felons in possession of dangerous weapons are designed to make it illegal for convicted felons to possess dangerous weapons given their history of serious criminal acts.

The way an officer can "read the clothing" a driver is wearing is by looking at the driver through the windows.  Is it that difficult to see a motorscooter club vest?

There doesn't need to be a "defintion of a military style" knife because the law doesn't say anything about military style knives.  It says knives "designed for lethal use".  A butter knife is not a knife designed for lethal use, a paring knife is not a knife designed for lethal use, a Buck pocket knife is not a knife designed for lethal use, a 7" combat knife is designed for lethal use.  

If you are a felon and want to carry a knife, get some legal advice if you aren't certain your preferred knife would be considered a dangerous weapon.

@henry.bowman5 

If it is judged to be a "deadly weapon" which means it was DESIGNED for lethal use.  A steak knife is designed for cutting up steaks.   Military style knives are designed for killing people and cutting up steaks with them is only an auxiliary use.

If he's a felon who hasn't had his rights restored, he's a prohibited possessor.  

If you want me to example what butter knives are designed for let me know, but you can probably figure it out on your own.

@henry.bowman5 Good ones!

When I read the title I instantly thought of all the LEO's who over the years have "cut us off" with their poor driving yet no lights or sirens.  We are always very aware that if their driving causes us to rear-end them - that it will be our fault regardless of how the LEO darted in front of us and slammed on their brakes.  Thinking of how often this has occurred I have other ?s as  well.  

But this perpendicular parking in front of someone - lots of people do it.  Then they start texting or acting like they have the most important phone call ever when really they are probably just itching for a fight.  

For some strange reason I have absolutely no fear of the guy in the photo.

@marcy @JDPhx ???? Driving a vehicle one has their back against a seat, it would be impossible to see a patch.  Also, you did not mention how the guy could have blocked the Detective when the story says the Detective had to make a U-turn to go after him.  More propaganda is my personal opinion.

@marcy @henry.bowman5 Much as with differentiating "assault weapons" from ordinary rifles, this sounds like it would be very difficult to prove in court. Unless of course, one had testimony from the designer of the knife as to its intended use. Anyone know how the pertinent statute actually reads?

2) He said he recognized "HA garb"

3) HA garb is distinctive even from the front
