11 motorcycle gang members face riot charges after violent bar altercation

UPDATED Dec. 12: This story has been updated to reflect new information concerning the arrest of Brent Taylor, who was taken into custody Thursday afternoon by police following the initial arrests of the 11 other suspects the day prior.

ST. GEORGE – Investigators with the St. George Police Department, Washington County Sheriff’s Office, Homeland Security Investigations and the U.S. Marshals Service served arrest warrants Wednesday on 10 men and one woman, each affiliated with a local motorcycle club and each allegedly involved in a violent altercation at the One and Only Bar, located at 64 N. 800 East in St. George. One man is still at large.

“Some members of the motorcycle clubs acted in concert with each other and engaged in violent and tumultuous behavior that resulted in a victim being stabbed and suffering bodily injury,” the St. George Police Department said Thursday in a news release.

On Aug. 24, at approximately 3 p.m., members of the Eastside Motorcycle Club and the Brothers of Legion Motorcycle Club were involved in a physical altercation with two other men, Aaron Bergquist, a detective with the St. George Police gang unit, wrote in his probable cause statements supporting the arrests.

Two men were outside the One and Only Bar smoking a cigarette and talking while a member of the Eastside Motorcycle Club, apparently watching over the club members’ motorcycles, was nearby and overheard part of their conversation. The man allegedly interpreted what the two men were discussing as derogatory, threw his cigarette on the ground, “gave them a stare” and entered the bar, Bergquist said in the statement.

“Moments later, eight members of the Eastside Motorcycle Club, and three members of the Brothers of Legion Motorcycle Club came out of the bar and confronted (the two men) in front of the building,” Bergquist said in the statement. “A loud physical altercation ensued.”

One man was assaulted while the other man was stabbed and suffered serious bodily injury, Bergquist said in the statement. Both men stated it was difficult to identify which of the 11 aggressors committed the stabbing and caused the other injuries due to the fact that they were being assaulted by so many individuals.

“Witnesses at the bar then identified Zachery Babcock as yelling ‘Eastside, let’s roll!’” Bergquist said. “At that point, the altercation broke up, club members left on their motorcycles, and (the stabbed man) was taken to the hospital.”

Those apprehended Wednesday were arrested on third-degree felony inciting a riot warrants issued out of the 5th District Court in connection with the stabbing – most of them having extensive prior arrests and criminal charges, according to Utah court documents. Those arrested were:

  • Zachery Robert Babcock, 33, of Washington City. Babcock holds the rank of “State of Representative or President” for the Washington County, Utah Eastside Chapter, according to the statement.
  • Austin Wesley Sharp, 22, of Toquerville. Sharp holds the rank of “President” in the Brothers of Legion, St. George, Utah Chapter, according to the statement. Sharp faces two additional third-degree felony drug and firearms charges along with a class A misdemeanor weapons charge. Sharp was also the victim of a shooting in August of last year. He was shot multiple times in the back with a .22 caliber rifle while riding his Harley Davidson in Cedar City. He was transported to Dixie Regional Medical Center in critical condition.
  • Steven Perry Neal, 43, of Washington City. Neal holds the rank of “State of Representative or President” for the Washington County, Utah Eastside Chapter, according to the statement.
  • Zachary Ross Humphries, 28, of Washington City. Humphries holds the rank of “member” for the Washington County, Utah Eastside Chapter, according to the statement.
  • Ramsey Joseph Campos, 23, of St. George. Campos holds the rank of “secretary” in the Brothers of Legion, St. George, Utah Chapter, according to the statement.
  • Scott Arthur Wells Jr., 30, of St. George. Wells holds the rank of “member” for the Washington County, Utah Eastside Chapter, according to the statement. Wells was additionally charged with a class B misdemeanor for concealing a dangerous weapon.
  • John Thomas Benyo, 40, of St. George. Benyo holds the rank of “member” for the Washington, County Utah Eastside Chapter, according to the statement.
  • Chase Edward Smith, 31, of Ivins City. Smith holds the rank of “Sergeant at Arms” in the Brothers of Legion, St. George, Utah Chapter, according to the statement.
  • David Delmar Mangold III, 45, of Washington City. Mangold holds the rank of “member” for the Washington County, Utah Eastside Chapter, according to the statement.
  • David Davenport, 43, of St. George. Davenport holds the rank of “Enforcer” for the Washington County, Utah Eastside Chapter, according to the statement.
  • Heather Sheppick, 30, of St. George. Sheppick is a close friend/associate of several Eastside members, according to the statement.

One individual, Brent Taylor, 39, was originally reported still being at large Thursday morning. Taylor was arrested on a third-degree felony inciting a riot warrant that afternoon and was booked into the Purgatory Correctional Facility around 3 p.m. He is listed on the Washington County Sheriff’s Office most wanted page, though marked as “captured.” He made bail and has since been released from the jail.

All 12 individuals were identified in surveillance footage from the bar, just minutes before the fight ensued, Bergquist said, and multiple witnesses at the bar confirmed the 12 individuals were physically involved in the altercation.

“(The man), who was stabbed, identified Babcock from surveillance photos as being present in the fight,” Bergquist said. “(The man) stated that at some point in the altercation, he exclaimed that he had been stabbed, and identified Babcock as replying ‘Yeah, because of your (expletive) mouth!’”

“Both victims identified Babcock as the individual who led the group from the bar and instigated the altercation.”

Additionally, Sheppick admitted to detectives during an interview that she was present during the altercation, the statement said, and admitted to assaulting a man and woman at the bar.

The Eastside Motorcycle Club is a gang in the St. George area, Bergquist said.

“From my training and experience, Eastside operates in a consistent manner as other outlaw motorcycle gangs in the United States,” Bergquist said in the statement. “Membership in the organization is highly structured with leadership, rank, and responsibilities.”

Likewise, the Brothers of Legion is another motorcycle club in the St. George area that operates and is structured in a similar manner.

“We most certainly don’t approach any motorcycle enthusiast or ‘biker’ as a gang member or feel they are a threat to society in any way, shape or form,” St. George Police Sgt. Johnny Heppler said in a September interview.

Heppler added:

If someone is a member of a motorcycle club, law enforcement does not automatically assume that they are part of a gang. It’s by their behavior or association that they align themselves with a nationally recognized outlaw motorcycle gang, then we approach it from a public safety standpoint and we act accordingly.

The Brothers of Legion Motorcycle Club issued the following statement on their Facebook page Wednesday evening:

You know, it’s sad when you’re part of something that does nothing but good. Just so we are clear people, the Brothers Of Legion MC is not involved in any illegal activities. We are not an outlaw club. We help and support tons of people/charities in our community. Just because we have a patch on our back does not make us bad people.

According to the club’s Facebook page, they are here to impact the community in a positive way.

Persons arrested or charged are presumed innocent until found guilty in a court of law or as otherwise decided by a trier-of-fact.

    Motorcycle clubs are still a thing? The “One and Only” is still open?

  • koolaid December 11, 2014 at 10:47 pm

    These guys should call their clubs the Dixie Dirt Bags. That bar sounds like a real rat’s nest

    • stretch December 12, 2014 at 10:03 am

      Koolaid… How about learning the actual facts before you decide your opinion? because the one you just made makes you seem moronic! You have no idea who these clubs are or what us bike clubs actually stand for or all the good we really do.! Just because something was printed in black and white, does not make it fact! Remember.. they are selling stories. They are in a competitive business and usually, dramatic, overstated stories are the ones that sell the most. NONE of what is being reported on is correct. These reporters, editors and many of the police officers involved in this situation should be investigated and fired! Get on social media and see all the good our local clubs do to give back to the community in the holidays AND throughout the entire year, EVERY YEAR!

      • Mean Momma December 12, 2014 at 3:51 pm

        KOOLAID sound moronic? Never!

        What “good” DO you do?
        Ride around “for charity” so you can take tax deductions?

        • Koolaid December 12, 2014 at 5:41 pm

          They probably put a flag on their noise belching motorcycles to show how ‘merican’ they is riding around with their ZZ Top beards, easy rider bandanas, and village people leather pants. Actually, I went into that bar once, and no, I wouldn’t call it a rats’ nest. I’ve seen rats’ nest and I think they’re much nicer. Sorry rats. Just my opinion.

      If there had only been one more to make it a dozen, then you would have a quorom, not a gang, but the 12 motorcycle apostles. Then to their defense, this act would be considered a religious calling, and after drinking the holy water (beer), the stabbing was recreating a biblical event.

  • Jitzoo December 12, 2014 at 3:56 am

    good to see biker clubs with balls for a change. wish they posted pics of the innocent until proven guilty morons that mouthed off and got their … handed to them and exactly what they said because it sounds to me “thought they were” tough guys weren’t very tough at all and maybe deserved a good can of whoop…. but then,i wasn’t there, so i have no idea what those comments were but must of been pretty negative and wrong. if im right, bike club gets my award for honor.
    Ed. ellipsis.

    • Jon R. Cocktoasten December 12, 2014 at 8:48 am

      WOW!!! Does it really take “balls” to stab someone??? Sounds like the two men were doing pretty good against the other 10 plus men who were assaulting them, otherwise why would you have to stab someone? There is no “honor” in stabbing someone who who is outnumbered 5+ to 1… As I said earlier, these guys would not last in a city with a true OMG! Since you are so knowledgeable about the OMG subculture them you do know that these guys have to bow down and get permission from the Bandidos to operate in the Dixie area, as the Bandidos are flying a Dixie bottom rocker… So tell me where is the “honor” in doing someone’s dirty work?

      • stretch December 12, 2014 at 10:08 am

        good thing you dont know anything!! people may actually take your comments with more than a grain of salt!! Our local clubs report to, and bow to nobody! we arent taking orders or even guidance from any 1% clubs OR even other clubs that arent 1 %. Do your research on the local clubs before running your mouth

        • Jon R. Cocktoasten December 12, 2014 at 2:33 pm

          Lol…

          • Bobber2 December 13, 2014 at 7:15 am

            Stretch, you’re just proving the point that your club is a bunch of low life, high school or lower educated morons. Wash your clothes, get a job and grow up. 10 against 2 sounds about right for a bunch of wimps like your club’s membership.
            Stand strong Eastsiders, you’re all you have.

        • Crock December 14, 2014 at 6:30 am

          Well said. People with know real knowledge of the truth are really making themselves look stupid by there pathetic comments.

  • systemchaos December 12, 2014 at 6:07 am

    Yeah i see these eastsiders little hang out just down the street from me and you can tell that they are all up to no good . in fact i know one if the members personally and this person is known heroin user . but they all say that the gang is for a good cause…yeah right its all bs . Its just a front for all the drug running and bad behavior . All these biker gangs are the same.

    • Nicole December 12, 2014 at 10:10 am

      Is a known heroine addict or WAS a known heroine addict. You spend a lot of personal time with this person? You’ve seen him use heroine? Recently? Words and allegations hurt people so make sure your 100% positive with proof before you say things and point fingers. What if you were the victim of false accusations? How easy would it be for me to simply say your known to look at child porn. I will clarify I don’t know you therefore those words are more than likely inaccurate and I am not speaking it as truth but more to prove a point. If I said that about you some people would believe it right even if it’s not true. Please think before you speak.

      • Crock December 14, 2014 at 6:40 am

        Wow! Really “SYSTEMCHAOS” is a child porn freak? That explains everything. He hides behind his computer and makes false accusations against others to keep anyone from seeing what he is doing. Freak! Thanks for clarifying it NICOLE. Well said!

  • tight magic undies December 12, 2014 at 6:35 am

    Drinking? Close down that bar! They were outside smoking? Ban tobacco! Motorcycle gang? Ban Harley Davidson!

    • sagemoon December 12, 2014 at 8:56 am

      Darn tootin’! What is this city coming to?

  • Jon R. Cocktoasten December 12, 2014 at 7:27 am

    KOOLAID!!! I finally agree with you! Seems like the Son’s of Anarchy started a new trend of a bunch of wannabe biker gangs… Kind of like super heroes and underoos, remember when every kid in town was running around in their Superman, He-Man, Hulk, et al underwear? Now it’s leather and boots! I’m sure, as with most of our local “Gangstas” they could NEVER hang with the big boys! I’d love to see these guys flying their three piece patches in an area that is claimed by a real Outlaw Biker Gang, they’d be stripped of their colors and sent home in a New York minute! I’m sure they have bowed down to the local Bandido Chapter otherwise they wouldn’t be allowed to fly their colors so freely… Oh well, KUDOS to all the LEO’s involved!!! Let these guys know we are not scared of them and will not tolerate them in our area!

  • Hilarious December 12, 2014 at 7:36 am

    This story is so hilarious. Not that someone got stabbed and injured, but that there is a so called motorcycle gang in STG and that they hang out at the “One and Only”
    Just looking at these photos reminds me of the movie with Clint Eastwood “Every which way but Loose” and the inept MC (Black Widows) that keep trying to hunt down Clint. That’s the first thing I thought of when I seen these photos. The only thing missing is a photo of the orangutan giving the camera a rasberry.

    • tc rider December 12, 2014 at 8:04 am

      it reminds me of the really old gangs, remember anette bernatelli?
      they were called chopper and the gang, or was it leader of the pack?
      and don’t forget about mongo

  • h.b. December 12, 2014 at 7:38 am

    Just cause there’s a bad seed doesn’t mean the whole group is spoiled.

  • Crock December 12, 2014 at 7:46 am

    What a complete crock. Sgt. He poler stated that they do not automatically assume that you are part of a gang. Club members of new clubs that are not outlaw clubs, with no arrest history are being pulled over by gang task force and harassed. At least be honest about it.

    • Crock December 12, 2014 at 8:11 am

      I meant Sgt. Heppler. Spelled right. Phone didn’t like the spelling.

  • Ken Carlton December 12, 2014 at 8:11 am

    Hilarious….dang you beat me to it….I was think about “Every Way but Lose” also.
    Good job COPs….don’t put up with these dirt bags.
    One of them came up next to me on St George BLVD and was reaving up his engine (straight pipes naturally)…like he wanted to race….but alas, his bike died. It was funny watch the chubby (bad Biker) push his …* to the curb.
    Ed. ellipsis: …*

  • Koolaid December 12, 2014 at 9:11 am

    Guns, knives and aggressiveness seem typical of the behavior of Dixie Dudes. At least they weren’t engaged in that highly illegal activity of dancing, else the city council and some bishops really would be upset with them. Had there been suspicions of illicit dancing, there probably would have been at least six police units monitoring the place.

    • Soaponarope December 12, 2014 at 11:57 pm

      Well it beats running a meth lab in Cedar City

  • InShock December 12, 2014 at 9:22 am

    Firstly, I must state that I did not witness this incident. I do want to say that I have been the recipient of charity from the Brothers of Legion. I do not know what caused this fight at the One and Only Bar. All I can tell here is that I’ve known them to be helpful to people in need. Please don’t paint a picture of them as 100% bad.

  • Me December 12, 2014 at 9:26 am

    What a joke! I wish I could be a Big Bad Biker in one of these oh so cool gangs! NOT!! Time to grow up and be someone your kids can look up to!! Oh but maybe it’s cool to be on the Bookings and in the paper for intentionally hurting someone…..come on, REALLY!!! Oh and these “names” that they have The President, The Enforcer that’s impressive! Lock these b******s up til the can grow up!!

    I think its pretty sad when people lie and slander others because they live in a small stupid city where everyone knows everyone and people need attention!! Including the local police department, and the news !!! Instead of arresting one person lets arrest 11 and plaster there faces all over the place and get paid and make saint george look sh****er then it already does!! lol with stories that aren’t fact! One of these people is my little brother, so when you don’t know any of these people or there real story u should just keep your comments to yourself!
    *Ed. elipses

    • Nicole December 12, 2014 at 10:27 am

      Agreed Madelyn words can hurt and destroy good people so unless you know for sure and have facts in the words you are using keep them to yourself these men are good men and have families that they take Excellent care of and wouldn’t pick a better person for children to look up to. A lot have been through a great deal in there lives that have made them extremely strong and honorable people. These are all allegations people no one has been charged with “stabbing” anyone yet they are already being called “guilty”. What makes you think they weren’t just in the wrong place at the wrong time and are being singled out due to them being easily identified. How would you feel and your family, friends, work etc if these allegations and no people who didn’t know you or anything about the situation threw their two cents in. It’s a good thing they are all strong adults who know we will make it through because there is no difference between the words being thrown around here and cyber bullying where children who don’t realize they will get through commit suicide. Think before you speak people please

      • MmmBacon December 12, 2014 at 7:37 pm

        Dont accuse them of stabbing anyone! because…….oh wait!! someone DID get stabbed….hmmmmm ok accuse away then! carry on!

      I’m guessing you wouldn’t be so flippant with your comments @restof and @joes if you had to list your real names here. Easy to be so damn critical and “funny” when you get to be anonymous.

      • The Rest Of The Story December 13, 2014 at 11:46 am

        My comment above was posted as a correction to a comment I made immediately before, in which I had referred to “11 men” and was correcting it to say “10 men”. It looks like the first part did not go through, so unfortunately what appears is misleading.

  • mo ferguson December 12, 2014 at 10:49 am

    I personally know of two former Navy SEALS that would have made mince-meat of all of these 11 wannabe bada$$e biker bi&^%es….at the same time. It would not have been pretty. Yeah, real tough guys that it takes 11 idiots to take on two guys. Had it been me, I know that at least two of the bikers would have ended up in the ER at DRMC.

    • stretch December 12, 2014 at 1:12 pm

      your a funny little boyl @ MO… Talk is easy when you are at the computer huh! ? I promise your thought on sending people to the hospital would never happen

      • mo ferguson December 12, 2014 at 1:34 pm

        STRETCH, you are absolutely correct. I don’t associate with, nor do I visit locales where this element of society “hangs out”. So, in that regard, you are correct. Now, if these types came to confront me, it would be an entirely different story….and outcome.

  • Missy December 12, 2014 at 11:16 am

    Um. Their. Sad to see this at all. Wives, girlfriends, kids, soon to be born children and perception of anyone who rides a motorcycle will suffer the consequences for a long time to come. Let’s not forget enhanced charges for previous legal problems. More fatherless children. Yeah, okay. Waiting on the facts. You keep your chin up fellas.

    • modigliani December 12, 2014 at 12:40 pm

      What’s really sad, Missy, is that everybody in this dynamite outfit looks like someone to whom “personal hygiene” is a foreign phrase. Many of us know motorcyclists who don’t cause problems, don’t choose (and it’s a choice) to hang with loser wannabe tough guys in bars and don’t forget to take a bath now and then. “Clean up your act” has real meaning here.

      Ah well, another day in Dixie.

    • Chris December 12, 2014 at 3:56 pm

      “previous legal problems”?? So, you are telling us that some of those arrested have a checkered past. Big surprise.

  • Dave Rabbitt December 12, 2014 at 1:27 pm

    Typically, I’ve run across way too many individuals in Southern Utah, who believe that they can run their mouth with little-to-no fear of retribution.

    Perhaps the thought of sunny St. George, UT. and its predominantly non-confrontational LDS society gives most people a false sense of security? Or perhaps it’s simply because they’ve never been in an an actual “real” street fight?

    Nothing more than idle conjectures on my part, but unless an individual (or group of) can back up the check their mouth just wrote, then they really should consider remaining silent. While part of me would like to say that I will not condone violence, another part of me understands why people feel justified to engage in violent behavior.

    Running your mouth in a disrespectable, sarcastic manner sends out the message you (believe) that you have “superior physical and mental prowess” to others. And in the hierarchical social setting of a bar, it sends the message that you are not only capable of proving this status, but are also willing to prove this status.

    You can be beaten to a pulp, stabbed repeatedly or even shot – when you choose to engage in this type of behavior. And the attention you bring upon yourself may be judged and then acted upon by anyone or maybe even everyone. And I find it very odd that no one ever considers that the person who “started” an altercation (verbally) in a situation like this, is never blamed (as well) for inciting a riot.

    On yet another note:

    This article (like so many others) has received numerous comments by those who feel an overwhelming need to point out that the individuals involved in the attack, are (for the most part) “upstanding and respectable citizens”. It doesn’t matter whether someone “accidentally” or purposely broke the law, critically injured or even killed someone… There will ALWAYS be those of you out there that are more worried if someone is verbally chastised by a stranger on facebook, then they are with the actual crime itself.

    If you have a group of people who have appointed certain individuals with the title of “Sergeant-At-Arms” and “Enforcer” and this group of people join together in opposition or attack, then they are a gang. An association of people with some common interest who meet periodically is a CLUB . A number of men banding together and engaging in a physical altercation with other individuals, for the purpose of inflicting serious physical injury, is a GANG.

    Clubs are formed with constructive goals in mind. Beating and stabbing someone, is not constructive – it’s destructive. If they were truly “only” a club prior to this incident, then the line was crossed that evening. Please don’t attempt to downplay the seriousness of this, with an incorrect choice of wording. You’re not a lawyer and we are not that naive.

    • Mike December 12, 2014 at 8:15 pm

      Dave. Ever hear the phrase “Sticks and stones can break my bones but words will never hurt me”? You say “Too many individuals … think they can run their mouth without fear of retribution.” As if that justified the violence! That is total BS. A “man” would walk away, knowing he has nothing to prove to fools. You write long paragraphs, but they are simply ridiculous words. Now, you want to kick my butt?

  • Bre December 12, 2014 at 1:50 pm

    This article is poor writing. She should do her research. She also discredits certain statements or incidents with her vocabulary choice.

    This is ridiculous.

      Heather, are you mad that the paper didn’t call you the clubs “old lady”? Because I am…. I was really looking forward to reading that. Very disappointing.

      • Koolaid December 12, 2014 at 6:12 pm

        Or “Here shep..”

  • that guy December 12, 2014 at 3:31 pm

    Did anyone see the actual stabbing ? Even the victim said he does not know who stabbed him. Good luck in court no witnesses and only hear say. I see charges getting droped.
    All of you hiding behind your keyboards spouting off such tough guys say that to their face you little worms. No one of you would have the guts too.

    • ladybugavenger December 14, 2014 at 12:33 am

      That’s why its a riot charge and not an individual charge of assault

  • loser December 12, 2014 at 4:23 pm

    Honestly Koolaid….your comments are boring me. Every single article. Every story. You turn it into something associated with the LDS church. Its getting old. I am definitely not a Mormon, but you sir, need to deal with whatever your issues are. It has no RELEVANCE to the article whatsoever. To talk about it so obsessively one would think you are, well, obsessed with it. Zip it.

    • Soaponarope December 13, 2014 at 12:01 am

      Yeah I agree with that

  • Koolaid December 12, 2014 at 5:34 pm

    Did you hear the roar of their motorcycles as they sped off? (Sound of revving the engines in the parking lot): “wannabe, wannabe, wannabe, wannabe…” (The sound as they were riding off): Wannnnnnaaaaaabeeeee (shift), wannnnnaaaaabeeeee (shift) waaaannnnnnaaaaabeeeeeee (shift) waaaaannnnnaaaabeeeee (shift) waaaaannnnaaaaabeeeeee.

    bunch of crybaby losers pretending to be tough guys. And I guess a bunch of them are posting on here now. I hope you idiots get locked up for a long time. You deserve it…

  • heather December 12, 2014 at 6:28 pm

    Old lady? Please. I am not now nor have I ever been affiliated with them. You all get to think what you want. Not like what I say would make u think different. Just please remember maybe its not all true maybe things were left out maybe not whole truths were stated. God bless.

    Motorcycle gangs in st George??? Of course,, I thought the one and oly was a gay bar..??? Why would. Otorchle gangs be there unless????in cognito?? All of the pics looked gross. I wouldn,rt war to meet any one of them in an alley, or dark road.. Great job by the police!!!!!

  • Missy December 12, 2014 at 8:42 pm

    Ha. This is my real name. Quite frankly, You talk the talk and walk the walk, claim an MC, this is what you get in St. George. It’s a small town. They haven’t dealt with big city problems. LE from other areas do not bother with bar fights, unless, this happens. Most real club members don’t bother with big mouths, either. They have presence of mind NOT to bring grief down on their club, but, if you want to push the issue, they will not back down to anything. So, whatever. I find this amusing, having been somewhere other than, here. There’s this whole wide world out there, LIFE doesn’t begin, nor, end in Dixie. This is a very non-confrontational area, it is easy to play bad-@ss here. Try it in Florida, California, Arizona, or head into a territory and spout off. It will not end well. So, on that note, See ya.

    Wow all you people are a complete joke … Any kind of story all you do is sit at your computer and judge judge judge away .. How about getting a life and minding your own damm business !!! I was raised by a single father biker dad and all his biker friends and I can personally say my life was amazing because of it .. And most of these sweet hearted loving bearded men are my friends and have been for many many years .. They are always there to help someone in need whether they know them or not .. Do countless charities … Are just all around great bearded guys 🙂 so keep talking your absolute nonsense about something you know nothing about !!! You will look like the fools in the end !!!

    • Soaponarope December 13, 2014 at 12:07 am

      Your a bigger joke and practice what you preach.. Quit judging people and try minding your own business these people have the right to their opinions so take a chill pill and deal with it

    • Mean Momma December 13, 2014 at 5:37 pm

      Ummm. What’s all this talk about their beards? No one said anything negative about their beards! However no-movember IS over, soooooo yeah…

  • Soaponarope December 13, 2014 at 12:13 am

    My real name is Wilmington Nathaniel Olervarous Delgado and that is why I use the name Soaponarope it’s easier to type

  • dee December 13, 2014 at 7:41 am

    I think its kind of stupid and idiotic how you people jump on what ever ship can get you seen. What about the fact the guy that was stabbed and died was taken from a beautiful little girl that loved him with all her heart and at a young age cant understand why her daddy was stabbed and taken from her. I don’t understand why the cops haven’t added Murder to all their counts, what do they call it Guilt by Association. Hey all the non-white people or ones that don’t fit what this sucky … place wants them to, or your not paying your 10% percent then you aint …. Just ask, I do realize that these Bike Gangs do help charities but come on that’s like saying yes im Mormon but only on sundays, Better know as Sunday Mormons, or Jack Mormons. Sorry I’m rambling on. But I breaks my heart to see this little girl and now she will never see her dad again, All Because the biker felt offended, and come on 12 on 2 I call that chicken … fighting.

      We have contacted the St. George Police about this matter and have not yet been able to confirm the status of the victims involved in the incident.

      • Mori Kessler Mori Kessler December 16, 2014 at 12:02 pm

        Police have confirmed no one was killed in connection with the reported incident. Could this have been confused with another incident?

  • Trudy Beachton December 13, 2014 at 8:15 am

    have you ever seen what a couple of Boy Scouts can do to a biker while he travels down the highway?—— TI—-M—–B—ER. Ya ever head the sound that 300 win mag makes while your traveling down the highway? happppppy traiiils toooo you

    • Koolaid December 13, 2014 at 2:02 pm

      Yes, it’s time to call out the boy scout motorcyclist elimination patrol on these hoodlums.

  • GladImNotWhite December 13, 2014 at 9:31 am

    I thought all the local scum bags hung out at Bout Time now. The girl, is she the same chick that was in the Most Wanted a couple of weeks ago? Or maybe it was one of the guys. I know I both of them have been arrest in the past weeks. GO RAIDERS!

  • Sweet Jude December 13, 2014 at 11:22 am

    I feel for this group of hoodlums, if you will. If this is the only way to belong or fit in somehow, it’s probably one of the saddest ways..The rats wanna stay here because this is the only place in the world where they will be treated nice. Now we know who they are, and they won’t earn anyone’s sympathies. Only the rebels who are just like them.

  • Scarecrow December 13, 2014 at 9:17 pm

    Homeland Security to investigate a bunch of drunk wannabe bad …. Tax dollars hard at work. If the police know these guys are trouble run a tighter ship.

  • Big Bear December 16, 2014 at 11:49 am

    First of all I am not in a club nor do I ride much. However what I do know is most clubs even in the greater Salt Lake Area do a ton for charities and people. Second thing is the law is very Skewed when it comes to investigating these days. If a club is investigated then those who did the investigations should as well be looked into as I have heard plenty about the Law Enforcement Activities in St George and I do not even live there. Third, Convicting a club or really any AMERICAN before they have their Right to Fair Trial and the right to Bring those who accuse them before them for questioning is our Constitutional Right and it should never be Trifled on. Thats the problem I see with most these comments is YOU PEOPLE Are also Americans and I hope to God you hold on to your freedom and your rights as an American and are proud, and if thats the case, do not be the paper the trial the judge and Jury and convict them based on whats written or even what they have been charged with. We have seen many instances of Americans who have been accused in this country of wrong doings and our government is powerful and many Law Enforcement officers and agencies do not care about your Constitutional Rights and one day someone may make a false claim about you and they will Kick down your door, draw their weapons on you and your children without hesitation nor remorse, and if someone does not get shot in your family on accident because you reached for you baby or a bottle then count you lucky stars. Dont get me wrong, Illegal is Illegal, but we have seen the abuse of powers the past 6 years so people Buck up, be Americans and stick to your Constitutional Rights, especially the freedom of Speech and the 2nd Amendment cause those 2 protect every other right you have, and do not judge based on News articles and Charges Printed, let the System work even though its broken half way. So stop being a Lamb and led too slaughter and be a Proud American and Protect your Rights and the Rights for Fellow Americans. Our country is already divided as it is, and this is exactly what they want. History always repeats itself if not learned from!
