'Keep Joe Free Support Party' packs em in

Providence RI and state police were on alert at the Messer Street headquarters of the HA yesterday. The event was to raise money for the defense fund of Joseph Lancia, who was arrested after he fired a gun at a passing truck in June.

Lancia is the president of the Rhode Island chapter. He has pleaded not guilty to charges of assault with the intent to commit murder, assault with a dangerous weapon, discharging a firearm while committing a crime of violence, and carrying a pistol without a permit. The HA have been embroiled in a feud with The Outlaws MC.
Police say Lancia shot at the truck because it was being driven by a former prospect for the gang with whom he was having an ongoing beef. The incident led to a standoff and raid of the clubhouse by state police, which used a special vehicle to ram through the fortified front door.
