Edmonton Hells Angels to take anger management courses

Three Edmonton members of the Hells Angels were ordered to take anger management courses Wednesday after pleading guilty to assault charges relating to a “dust-up” with rival bikers. The incident was captured on surveillance video.

Eduardo Bartolozzi, 36, was handed a 60-day jail sentence to be served on weekends and placed on probation for a year after pleading guilty to assault causing bodily harm for a Feb. 21, 2014, attack on Warlocks Motorcycle Club member Jason Bryanton at a tattoo studio and laundromat in Drayton Valley. Bartolozzi punched Bryanton about 25 times and “cowardly” stomped on him while he was on the ground.
Darcy Lee, 40, was handed a 30-day jail sentence to be served on weekends and placed on probation for a year after pleading guilty to assault with a weapon for hitting Warlocks member Rocky Buzzell twice in the back with a broken table leg. Troy Pawluk, 45, was fined $2,000 and put on probation for a year after pleading guilty to assault causing bodily harm for punching Bryanton two or three times in the head.

All three spent five days in custody after being arrested. They were ordered to take anger management counselling while on probation. Charges against the trio of robbery, intimidation and committing an offence in association with a criminal organization were withdrawn. Charges against Hells Angels members Dustin Lowry, 36, and Roy Radies, 52, were also withdrawn.
Court heard there had been an ongoing feud between members of the Warlocks and Hells Angels. At the time of the incident, 14 men, of which at least 10 were Hells Angels, entered Bad Boyz through the front door.

The Warlocks involved refused to provide statements. Crown prosecutor Lawrence Van Dyke had sought jail terms of nine to 12 months and argued the group assault was like a “wolf pack kind of mentality.”
