Biker: 'We were racially profiled'

Hells Angels Rey Rodriguez, 32, left, and Stephen Meza, 58, right, were busted on weapons charges.A group of bikers say Fresno anti-gang officers overreacted in a raid on their clubhouse, but cops say they had no choice after an armed Hells Angel ran and hid inside the building.
“It was crazy, bro,” said Jay Upton, vice president of the Savage Assassins. “We were racially profiled.”

The puppet club Savage Assassins staged an end of summer event at their clubhouse on Belmont Avenue east of First Street. A barbecue, cold drinks and a wet T-shirt contest were on the schedule. Christian biker groups were also at the event.
