Hells Angels Stabbed in Bar Brawl with Christian Biker Group

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- Six members of a Christian motorcycle club and three Hells Angels were arrested Wednesday by SWAT officers investigating a bar brawl that left three people wounded.

More than 150 police officers served search warrants and arrested suspects in Anaheim and Costa Mesa.

The members of the Set Free Soldiers group were arrested for investigation of conspiring to commit murder, Newport Beach police spokesman Sgt. Evan Sailor said.

The three Hells Angels were taken into custody for investigation of assault and drug possession.

The raids came after a fight at a Newport Beach bar last week between members of the Hells Angels and the Set Free Soldiers, described on its Web site as a Jesus-loving men's motorcycle club.

Two Hells Angels members were stabbed and a member of the Set Free Soldiers was hit on the head with a pool ball, Sailor said.

The names of those arrested were not immediately released.

Police helicopters woke one resident who said members of the Set Free Soldiers had long caused trouble on her street.

"The neighborhood has been trying to get them out of here for years," Sharon Murphy, 50, told the Orange County Register.

Rock Aguilar, who said his father started the Free Soldiers group, told KCAL9 the accusations are false but would not comment further.
