Top Leaders of Bandidos Biker Gang Indicted

SAN ANTONIO Jan 6, 2016, 3:45 PM ET

National leaders of the Bandidos biker gang were arrested Wednesday on charges accusing them of racketeering and waging a deadly "war" on the rival Cossacks gang, federal authorities said.

An indictment announced by the U.S. Attorney's Office in San Antonio accuses three Bandidos leaders of sanctioning a three-year fight that included violent clashes with rival gangs and distribution of methamphetamine.

The accusations focus on a rivalry that came under renewed attention in May, when a meeting of biker groups at a Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas, ended in gunfire that left nine people dead.

Authorities believe that confrontation began when members of the Cossacks crashed a meeting of a confederation of biker clubs that included the Bandidos. A dispute in the Twin Peaks restaurant ended in gunfire between the bikers and police standing nearby.
