Police have charged the rebels and members of the Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang after a member’s illegal poolside birthday party crashed.
Bodycam footage captures the moment when police crashed into a bike’s illegal birthday pool party, charged against multiple gang members under Western Australia’s strict anti-bike laws.
Officers from the Gang Crime Squad were called to a gathering of members of the illegal motorcycle gang at a hotel in Scarborough near Perth on January 8.
A member of the public said tattoos identifying members of the rebels and members of the Hell’s Angels motorcycle gang were visible.
Under Western Australia’s new anti-bike law, members of illegal motorcycle gangs are not allowed to illegally display their gang marks.
Police may issue an unlawful consorting notice on an offender, prohibiting any association with other offenders named in the notice for three years.
Violation of the notice could result in up to five years in prison.
A WA Police spokesman said the Gang Crime Squad had identified the rebels and members of Hell’s Angels with their partners in the pool area of the hotel.
They were celebrating the birthday of one of the rebel members.
“The group was arrested after being identified as a member of an organization and displaying prohibited signs,” the spokesman said.
“As a result, five OMCG members have been charged with displaying prohibition signs.”
The party was loyal and left the public area.
Since the law went into effect in December last year, 11 people have been charged with displaying prohibited signs in public places.
A number of BKI clubhouses have also tried to comply with the new law by covering or painting the club’s logo.
