A southern Colorado event promoter has asked a motorcycle club made up largely of law enforcement to stay away from future biker events after its members were involved in a brawl last month that left a man dead.
Jim Wear says he asked Iron Order for the ban as a safety precaution after the January melee the Colorado Motorcycle Expo in Denver. Police say a corrections officer who is an Iron Order member fired his gun during the fight with the Mongols motorcycle club. The groups blame each other for instigating the violence. Seven others were shot, stabbed or beaten.
No one has been charged.
Wear says a group affiliated with Iron Order has been involved in violence at past events.
Attorney John Whitfield says the group agreed it would be safer to avoid upcoming shows.
