Arizona - ~Two Alleged Motorcycle Gangsters Arrested During Arizona Bike Week; Hells Angels Play Nice Despite Warning~
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.
According to an internal memo from the Scottsdale Police Department obtained by New Times, Arizona Bike Week "historically draws" outlaw motorcycle gangs to Scottsdale, with the Hells Angels and a handful of other clubs mentioned by name.
The memo says cops documented more than 20 motorcycle gangsters last year alone, several of them from out of state.
