How a Cold War Between Rival Biker Gangs on Cape Cod Turned Red Hot

May 13, 2023

Both the Hells Angels and Pagans are well-established outlaw motorcycle gangs, with a history of crimes across the country ranging from narcotics trafficking to racketeering. The small city is located on the Southern Massachusetts coast near the Rhode Island border, in an area where the Hells Angels long held sway. The “green light” gave Hells Angels members the go-ahead to “attack on sight” any Pagans members, according to the court document.”The confrontation came soon after. Cameras operated by The Fall River Police Department tracked the 100-strong group of bikers as they rode to Fall River and carried out the attack.. When it was over, the warrant said, authorities suspect the Hells Angels retreated to their reclaimed Cape Cod clubhouse.
