Hell's Angel arrested for waving gun, chasing man away from group's East Village clubhouse with baseball bat

Hell hath no fury like a Hell's Angel armed with a gun and a baseball bat.
A member of the notorious biker club was arrested for allegedly waving around a gun and chasing a man away from the group’s East Village clubhouse with a baseball bat, officials said Wednesday.
Jose Brito, 28, was accused of pulling a gun on a 30-year-old man on E. 3rd St. near First Ave. around 10 p.m. Tuesday.


He then grabbed a baseball bat and chased the victim up the street, officials said.
Responding officers recovered the bat but not the gun, which the victim said Brito pulled from his waistband.


Police charged the Staten Island resident with criminal possession of a firearm and menacing, officials said. His arraignment was pending Wednesday.


The Hell’s Angels New York City chapter was founded in the East Village in 1969.
