San Diego chapter president and vice president were arrested at one of the homes in Pacific Beach, Calif.

08:45 |

33-year-old biker and the chapter treasurer were arrested at one of the homes in Pacific Beach, Calif. Police seized a pound and a half of marijuana, in addition to hydrocodone and oxycodone pills, and $5,000 in cash, Reizen said.
The San Diego chapter president and vice president also were charged in a separate case in the investigation, Reizen said."It was a limited investigation based on a very specific set of facts," Reizen said Tuesday.
The defendant, who was released on bond, was scheduled for a pre-trial hearing Aug 20 in San Diego County Superior Court, with his trial set for September.
He is charged with possession of marijuana for sale and two counts of illegal possession of narcotics.His trial could be delayed, given the defendant's involvement in the shooting last Saturday at the Sturgis rally in South Dakota.
He was shot about 1 a.m. Saturday at the Loud American Roadhouse after a fight broke out between Hells Angels' members and an off-duty Seattle police officer. The biker was in stable condition at a local hospital.The officer, a 43-year-old detective, says he was jumped and beaten and drew his weapon in self-defense. The detective was at the bar with four other officers who were vacationing at the weeklong rally. All five officers belonged to the Iron Pigs Motorcycle Club, which draws members mainly from police and firefighters.Some sources say the fight may have started because the officers wore their club's colors into the bar, which angered the Hells Angels members.A Meade County grand jury in South Dakota began hearing testimony Sunday from witnesses, including the officers, during a seven-hour hearing. The grand jury is expected to reconvene on Aug. 27, state's attorney Jesse Sondreal said. No one has been arrested.The Seattle Police Department reassigned all five officers while the investigation is pending, police officials said.Court records say the biker has previous convictions for burglary in 2000 and possession of a dangerous weapon in 2001. In both cases, he was sentenced to two years of confinement, although it was unclear Tuesday whether he served the full terms.The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation's computer system was down Tuesday, so the inmate's prison records were unavailable, a department spokeswoman said.
The biker is not under any court-imposed conditions while his case is pending, other than that he is required in California to consent to searches while on pretrial release, Reizen said.If convicted of the drug charges, he could face a maximum of six years in prison because of his criminal record, Reizen said.
