Bandidos Motorcycle Club: 5 Fast Facts You Need to Know.

Earlier this week the Texas attorney general’s office said Waco prosecutors violated open records laws by not releasing text messages related to a deadly May shootout involving bikers and police.

Attorneys for some of the 170 bikers arrested following the melee at a Twin Peaks restaurant have accused prosecutors of offering reduced bonds in exchange for waiving their right to sue. According to the BigCountryHomePage.com, the president of the Abilene, Texas chapter of the Bandidos, Curtis Jack Lewis, was arrested in November 2013 on charges that he stabbed two members of the Cossacks during a fight outside a restaurant. It has spread to more than 100 chapters in the United States, and international chapters in Germany, Australia, Denmark, France, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Malaysia, Indoensia, Singapore, Costa Rica and Belgium.

The Bandidos are involved in transporting and distributing cocaine and marijuana and are involved in the production, transportation and distribution of methamphetamine. Patrick Swanton said innocent bystanders and officers somehow managed to escape injury, including a restaurant full of families just feet away from the one where the shooting started. “Let’s just say it’s Sunday and someone was looking out for us,” Swanton said. “There were so many rounds fired from bad guy weapons here.” “We were in marked cars. And it mattered not to them,” Swanton said at a news conference, which was posted online by KXXV. “That tells you the kind of level of people we’re dealing with.” The police department’s spokesman, Sgt.
