Sean Timmins Hells Angels bike gang member has said he would rather go to jail than give evidence in a court case

21:00 |

Sean Timmins, 37, has denied attacking a man at a petrol station in Cardiff, telling a jury at Cardiff Crown court that he was 132 miles away at the time.A Hells Angels bike gang member has said he would rather go to jail than give evidence in a court case because it is against "brotherhood" rules.He told a judge he knows the identity of the actual attacker, but would not reveal it because he is also an Angel.Neil Lake needed three metal plates inserted in his face after the attack.Prosecutor Tony Trigg told the court Mr Lake had stopped at the Asda petrol station in Cardiff Bay, south Wales, in April last year when he saw a group of Hells AngelsHe said: "Mr Lake saw a group of Hells Angels motorcyclists at the pumps."One of the Hells Angels approached him and asked: "Have you got a problem?" "If a man approaches you wearing Hells Angel motorcycle leathers, then asks you if you have a problem - you know you have got a problem."Timmins then punched Mr Lake with a single, heavy blow with his gloved hand causing severe facial fractures."The motorcycles rode off and Mr Lake wrote down the registration number in the dust on the back of his car."Timmins was the registered keeper of that Harley Davidson Road King."Mr Trigg told the court Mr Lake later indentified Mr Timmins as the man who had attacked him.But the court heard claims that Mr Timmins had been laying a driveway near his home in Wolverhampton and he said another Hells Angel had carried out the attack.Mr Timmins , who has been a Hells Angels member for 15 years, refused to say who the member of the "brotherhood" was as he would be kicked out of the club.
'Serious position'"We don't blab on each other and that's a fact," he told the court.
"If that means being held in contempt of this court so be it."I know I'm in a serious position but I can't tell you who it is - I would rather go to jail.
"I've been arrested for something I haven't done."I made a no comment interview to the police because in the Hells Angels we don't make statements - the rules of the club prevent it."Even if you are in jeopardy, these are the rules of the club."Mr Timmins, of Caven, Wolverhampton, denies causing grievous bodily harm and inflicting grievous bodily harm on Mr Lake.The trial continues.
