South Carolina - Myrtle Beach police arrest man claimed to be Hells Angels member
Myrtle Beach police arrested a man who claimed to be a member of the Hells Angels motorcycle club after another man reported he pointed a gun at him, according to a police report.
Alex William Sawyer, 34, was charged with resisting arrest and providing false information after he gave police two different names when they questioned him about 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Bar Harbor Motel, police said.
A 27-year-old Laurinburg, N.C., man told police Sawyer tried to come into their motel room while his girlfriend was there Wednesday night, according to the report. On Thursday the man?s daughter pointed out Sawyer as the man who tried to come into the room.
The man confronted Sawyer, who said he was a member of the Hells Angels and would kill him, according to the report. The man said he got his family and as they went to get into their car Sawyer was in the doorway of his room and pointed a handgun at him.
The man said he told his family to return to their room and call police, according to the report. Police did not find a gun in Sawyer?s room when they arrived and he allowed them to search it.
Josh Johnson, who is a member of the Myrtle Beach Hells Angels motorcycle club, said Sawyer is not a member of the club and members do not know the man.
