Hells Angel member arrested: For possession of invisible gun

"They said it was a firearm, but a firearm was never found"

Staten Island, New York -(July 28, 2016) A member of the Hells Angels motorcycle club was arrested for allegedly waving around a gun and chasing a man away from the group’s East Village clubhouse with a baseball bat, officials said Wednesday.

Jose Brito, 28, was accused of pulling a gun on a 30-year-old man on E. 3rd St. near First Ave. around 10 p.m. Tuesday. He then grabbed a baseball bat and chased the victim up the street, officials said.

Responding officers recovered the bat but not the gun, which the victim said Brito pulled from his waistband.

Police charged the Staten Island resident with criminal possession of a firearm and menacing, officials said. His arraignment was pending Wednesday.

The Hell’s Angels New York City chapter was founded in the East Village in 1969.

Sources said the clubhouse address was recently put on a hipster website, drawing in droves of stupid, naive, skinny-jean clad groupies.

“A lot more people are stopping by to engage the bikers when they should be best off respecting the privacy of others,” the source said.

Brito’s attorney, Ron Kuby, said the story against his client keeps changing.

“They said it was a firearm, but a firearm was never found,” said Kuby. “Now it’s a baseball bat. Hopefully by the arraignment it won’t be a heat-seeking missile.”

The allegations don’t mesh with the typical profile of a Hell’s Angel, said Kuby, offering up a defense that didn’t exactly paint Brito as a saint.

“When a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club is allegedly engaged in acts of menacing, he usually doesn’t have weapons,” Kuby said. “Menacing is just what he is.”

Cripple Creek gets it: HAMC National Run Welcome

Cripple Creek and Teller County Ready for Hells Angels Rally 

CRIPPLE CREEK, Colo. -(July 27, 2016) They're considered an organized crime syndicate by federal officials and now the Hells Angels motorcycle club is in Cripple Creek for its annual gathering.

"I think of them in California back in the 1960s when they were notoriously known," said resident David Donatto.  "But I think they've toned it down quit a bit since then."

Local authorities hope so, and are ensuring the club's visit is peaceful by assigning 15 Cripple Creek police officers and 40 officers from five other agencies to patrol the town.

Between 200 and 300 club members had arrived by Monday and they plan to be in town through Thursday, mostly gathering behind the Wildwood Casino.

Cripple Creek Police Chief Mike Rulo said there has been no trouble since the bikers began arriving last weekend.

"We've had a few verbal warnings for minor issues related to traffic," he said.  "And really, that's about it."

Cripple Creek City Administrator Ray DuBois said club leadership contacted town officials several months ago about the visit and to plan it out.

DuBois reflected on the club's past connections to crime and violence, and on some public criticism that the visit wasn't widely publicized.

"We intentionally tried to keep the visit low-key to avoid raising concerns too much," he said.  "Clearly, they  have a reputation that precedes them.  But based on the facts of looking at the previous annual gatherings, there's been a very small percentage of any kind of incidents."

Kevin Werner, Wildwood's vice president and general manager, said lodging in town is sold out for the week.

"They tip well, they're spending money, they're putting money into the economy," he said.  "We normally aren't sold out in the middle of a week.  So for us, it's a good group."

But some remain uneasy about the club's presence in town.

"A couple of the casino workers have stated that business is slow because of people being afraid," said Lana Martin, an employee at The Rocky Mountain Canary general store.  "But they've been polite and courteous."

Club members declined to be interviewed.

Personnel from the El Paso, Fremont and Teller County sheriff's offices, Fountain police and the Colorado State Patrol are providing the additional security.

Next month, Cripple Creek welcomes another biker group as 7,000 visit for an annual salute to honor military veterans.
