BIKER NEWS -- TWO Hells Angels accused of fighting in the street have been cleared of violent disorder.

Raymond Scaddan, 55, and Stephen Jones, 58, were cleared of the charge by a jury of seven women and four men yesterday.

The pair, who had no previous convictions, had always denied the charge.


They were also cleared of an alternative charge of using threatening, abusive, insulting words or behaviour.

The trial heard how the pair turned up at the home of Andrew McCann to collect money for a £2,000 gold necklace that had been given to him.

It was said during the proceeding that Mr Scaddan, of Beaufort Road, Brynmawr, had a knuckle duster on him.

Mr Jones, of Fron Hafren, Newtown, Powys, had, meanwhile, allegedly armed himself with a baseball bat.

However, But the pair both maintained that they had acted in self defence after an alleged attack outside McCann’s home.

McCann, of Durham Road, Newport, was also found not guilty of violent disorder, a charge he had denied too.

However, But the 11 jurors did find him guilty of an alternative charge -– using threatening, abusive, insulting words or behaviour.


The court heard the three bikers had been friends at the Hells Angels motorcycle club but McCann had left the group following a falling out in 2014.

McCann claimed the two Hells Angels had come to extort £5,000 from him.

Two hammers belonging to McCann were later recovered near his home, the court was told.

The jury heard that McCann was given a 14-month custodial sentence after breaking a person’s knee with a hammer in a row over a tattoo in 2007.

Judge Andrew Grubb bailed McCann to be sentenced on November 26 on the condition he lives and sleeps at his home address.
