Police arrest 2 dozen people at the God’s Only Demons Motorcycle Club on Butler Street near Fourth Avenue in Gowanus NY around 4 a.m., witnesses said.
The New York Post quotes a witness as saying, “The whole precinct was here,” said a witness who declined to give his name. “About 80 cops or more. Armored police vans, SWAT gear, dogs. Crazy. I haven’t seen that many cops here ever. They went up on the roofs.”
Ten people at the club face gun charges, said police sources. The other 14 people were picked up for having outstanding arrest warrants.
Back in 2014, the city lawyers filed a lawsuit to boot the club from its one-story brick building in Gowanus, calling the biker group a “public nuisance” that “endangers the safety or health of members of the surrounding community,” The Post reported at the time.
The lawyers cited an October 2012 murder that went down outside the club. Alberto Pena, 33, was shot and killed after getting in a fight with another man inside the club.
