Jay Dobyns fought the Hells Angels. Jim Reed fought the feds.

The federal agent needed a lawyer and quick, one who would believe his story — though he knew there was little reason for anyone to believe his story.

There had been a fire at the agent’s house just outside Tucson. It was arson. He figured it was set by somebody connected to the Hells Angels. After all, he had been undercover, infiltrated the outlaw biker gang, landed 50 arrests. A gang member would have a motive to burn down his house.

Instead, he said, his agency wasn’t looking at the bikers. It was looking at him.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, he said — the people who had employed him and sent him into the biker gang — now blamed him for the arson at his own home.
