11 Hell's Angels members indicted in brawl with rival gang at Las Vegas wedding chapel

Thirteen men, including 11 members of the Hell's Angels motorcycle gang, have been indicted in connection with a 2008 brawl with a rival gang at a downtown Las Vegas wedding chapel.

According to the Clark County grand jury indictment returned Friday, the 13 attacked members of the Mongols biker gang and bludgeoned them with their fists, feet, bottles and trash cans.

Two defendants, Jeffrey Murray and John Merchant, are accused of stabbing two Mongols members during the December 2008 fight at A Special Memory Wedding Chapel.

All 13 defendants have been charged with the same felonies, including four counts of battery, two counts of attempted murder and one count of assault.

A lawyer for Murray says his client and other defendants acted in self-defense.
