A member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club in Phoenix stole a car from a guy he believed owed him money, then turned around and tried to sell it to an undercover cop, police say.

According to court documents obtained by New Times, James Day, a 47-year-old Hells Angels biker with a lengthy rap sheet, threatened a Phoenix property manager into giving him his car, claiming that the property manager "owed" him money for having his ex-girlfriend's Corvette -- which she abandoned there -- towed from the property.

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 yo-yo in question, as included in the lawsuit.
The Hells Angels seem like the kind of guys who would be absolutely allergic to anyone wearing a suit -- unless their somewhat infamous lawyer Fritz Clapp wears a suit.

Clapp and the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club have teamed up for the badass biker move of the week, which involves filing a lawsuit against a yo-yo maker and Toys 'R' Us because they believe there's a yo-yo being sold that uses a Hells Angels logo.

The federal lawsuit contends that several foreign Hells Angels members applied for visas last year to attend one of the club's major events in New Hampshire, and they were denied, based on their membership with the Hells Angels.

Charges were dismissed against seven members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club who were accused of being involved in a 2010 shootout with Vagos, a rival gang.

The two clubs shot it off in Chino Valley, north of Prescott, in August 2010, as at least 50 shots were fired, although no one was seriously injured.

Richard Gaxiola, an attorney for one of the alleged Angels, tells New Times 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 attorneys for quite some time.

Four members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club were found not guilty of charges of "rioting" and assisting in a criminal street gang.

The four acquitted, Rudolfo "Rudy" Martinez, Gerald Smith, Dale Hormut, and Stephen Helland, were among seven bikers arrested by an Arizona Department of Public Safety task force in 2009, during "Operation Quiet Riot."

The operation was a six-month investigation into an ongoing feud between the Hells Angels, the Desert Roadriders, and their mutual rival Vagos in northwestern Arizona, in what DPS officials called "a struggle for power."

The four Hells Angels found not guilty were accused in an assault on Vagos members at Lazy Harry's bar in Bullhead City.

On the other hand, several members of Vagos were arrested by a DPS task force in February after allegedly beating up a guy at Lazy Harry's.

Arizona Bike Week is geared more toward the casual motorcyclist, but that doesn't mean the gangsters are absent.

A Scottsdale police spokesman tells New Times just two alleged motorcycle gangsters were arrested during this year's Arizona Bike Week, which ran during the last week of March.

According to police, one member of Lost Dutchman MC was arrested for excessive speeding, while a member of Exiled Few MC was booked for violations related to an ignition interlock and a concealed weapon.

Both of those clubs are Arizona-based.

Meanwhile, it looks like the Hells Angels decided to play nice this year. Hells Angels members tend to claim Arizona Bike Week is for the yuppies, but that's apparently not quite the case.

Kevin J. Augustiniak, one of the Hells Angels charged in the 2001 murder of Mesa resident Cynthia Garcia, was sentenced yesterday to 23.5 years in prison.

Augustiniak pleaded guilty to second-degree murder in October, nearly eight years after his 2003 indictment.

Sentencing for second-degree murder is typically capped at 22 years, but a previous aggravated-assault conviction helped tack on a little extra, although he'll get some credit for his time served in county jail.

Maricopa County Attorney's Office spokesman Jerry Cobb tells New Times Augustiniak will get around six years credit for time served.

Augustiniak and another Hells Angel, Paul Eischeid, were partying with Garcia in the gang's Mesa clubhouse in October 2001 when some of the bikers thought she was being disrespectful.
