Bullet from deceased Bandido sent for test

 Twin Peaks Restaurant In Waco Texas 

Waco, Texas  (Sept. 17, 2015) - A bullet removed from the arm of a James ‘Spaz’ Anderson, a member of the Bandidos MC wounded May 17 at Twin Peaks and killed four months later in a traffic wreck will be analyzed by federal investigators. Jason Chambers, an investigator in the McLennan County District Attorney’s Office, obtained a search warrant last week to extract the bullet.

Texas Ranger Jake Burson executed the search warrant for the bullet at a funeral home in Henderson on Friday, the day before Anderson’s funeral. Anderson, 53, was killed Sept. 3 when his motorcycle struck a deer on a highway in northwestern Nebraska. The bullet was removed, but it could not be determined initially what caliber it is.

Authorities want the bullet in Anderson’s upper left arm to compare it to weapons seized after nine bikers were killed and 20 were wounded at a meeting of bikers at the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco.

The bullet will be forwarded to the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, which is conducting the forensic analysis of weapons, bullets, bullet fragments and casings recovered at the scene.

Jason Chambers believes that an analysis of the projectile in Anderson’s upper left arm will be beneficial in the investigation and may more accurately identify the weapon used against him during the incident.

According to the affidavit, Lanie Smith, a Longview police officer, received information that Anderson had been shot May 17 at Twin Peaks. The officer found him “recuperating” from his wound at a home near Longview. Anderson reportedly admitted to Smith that he was shot in the left arm but managed to leave Waco without being identified by police or arrested.

The Nebraska State Patrol reported that Anderson, an electrician, was riding with a group of bikers about 6 a.m. Sept. 3 when he hit at least one deer on U.S. Highway 385 about three miles south of Chadron, Nebraska.
