170 bikers charged over deadly Texas brawl


WASHINGTON: Some 170 rival motorcycle gang members have been charged with engaging in organized crime linked to capital murder after a mass brawl at a Texas restaurant left nine people dead, police said on Monday. Officials in the central Texas city of Waco said they were still processing the unusually large number of suspects after Sunday’s melee, which started in the restroom of the Twin Peaks Sports Bar and Grill and eventually spilt into an outdoor patio area and the parking lot. Officials said as many as five gangs fought each other with knives, chains and guns in front of terrified restaurant patrons. “We had wounded inside. We had people stabbed. We had people shot and we had people beat,” said Sergeant Patrick Swanton, a Waco police spokesman, at a press conference.
