Ohio police: biker feud may be escalating

Police in southwest Ohio say a feud between two rival motorcycle clubs is believed to be escalating, with a bar brawl ending with four stabbed and nine arrested.

Union Township police Lt. Scott Gaviglia (guh-VIG'-lee-uh) said Tuesday that two suspected members of the Iron Horsemen club were attacked at a suburban Cincinnati bar Saturday night. Gaviglia says nine Cincinnati Highwaymen members each were charged with felonious assault.

He says the injured men were released from hospitals.

Gaviglia says an advisory to southwest Ohio police has warned that the clubs are searching for conflict opportunities.

An Iron Horsemen member was killed in a shootout last month with Cincinnati police who had feared a showdown between the two clubs at different bar.
