We have received reports that the convention brawl yesterday actually involved three clubs, Outlaws, Pagans, and Warlocks.  It seems that the fight began inside the lobby and spilled out to the street, as opposed to the two fights that was previously thought.  The altercation was not on the same floor as the convention, although the club members were there to check it out as they do every year.  Approximately 40 police officers were on scene and 8 club members injured and 8 were arrested.  There was a firearm that was confiscated, but it was not used in the altercation and none of those injured were hurt badly.  We are not sure as to why the fight broke out.  I have received reports that it was over a t-shirt and another report that it started when members of the Pagans took a cane to a Skinhead.  Perhaps the two reports are related.  Thanks to our readers who sent in reports of what went down… as more comes available, I will post.

another update… Just heard from Aurora of Steadfast Brand (check out the post in the Tattoosday section) and she has another report from on site.  According to Aurora, the altercation was shut down pretty quickly by cops in full riot gear.  A number of folks were carrying and someone was shooting rounds outside, but as far as we know, no-one was hit.  The convention did see a disruption with the fire alarm going off.  She mentioned a client at her booth was being worked on and had his wife and brand new baby with him.  Steadfast was able to get the two of them into a private room just to play things safe while Papa stayed under the gun.

Just got the update on the wedding situation last weekend.  It seems that there was a Hells Angels wedding going on at “A Special Memory Wedding Chapel.”  As we all know, weddings are booked back to back in Vegas.  Well, a Mongol and his fiancé were walking into the chapel just as the Angels were wrapping up their ceremony.

The Mongol groom was stabbed three times in the stomach and his best man was also stabbed.  “We were friggen attacked, and we defended ourselves the best we could. It’s real hard to do when you’re outnumbered that bad, but that’s all right. Mongol on,” he said Sunday afternoon, after being released from surgery.

The Mongol, who’s identity is being kept private at the time, wants everyone to know that he was not looking for a fight, but just wanted to get married.  Metro police are still looking for suspects and no info on arrests have been released. 

I will keep you posted, and will have the video if it becomes available.  Have a safe and conflict free holiday.
