Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do?

Whatcha gonna do when they come for you?

To paraphrase the reggae band Inner Circle, what do a bunch of Hells Angels Motorcycle Club members do if they are charged with assault, there’s surveillance of it, and the law is coming for them?

Plead guilty, of course.

However, what do you do if you’re the judge faced with sentencing them?

You send them to anger management classes.

Three Edmonton, Alta. Hells Angels members plead guilty to assault charges that arose because of a scuffle they had with bikers from the rival Warlocks Motorcycle Club.

It looks like there was a lead up to this confrontation between the two clubs as the court learned that prior to the clash, there was a lengthy rivalry going on between the biker clubs.

The confrontation occurred in February, 2014 at the Bad Boyz Tattoo Studio and Laundromat in Drayton Valley, which was actually owned by one of the Warlock members.

The government prosecutor claimed that this attack by the bikers was “tag-team wrestling” and that they had a “wolf pack kind of mentality.”

One of the fights between two bikers was so violent that a Warlock member was hit about 25 times and the court commented that the Hells Angels member who had hit him and stomped on him “clearly lost it.”

Though it seems some of the Warlocks were badly bruised, they refused to talk to police.

After pleading guilty to the assaults, the court sentenced the Hells Angels members to jail time as well as fines and probation. The judge also ordered each of them to attend anger management courses while on probation, clearly displeased with the level of violence during the confrontation.

Let’s hope some anger management will calm these “bad boyz” down.
