'Set Free' gang member to be in court

ABC News/August 14, 2008

Anaheim, California - One member of a Christian motorcycle gang is expected in court Thursday to face charges that include street terrorism.

Rodrigo Jose Requejo was one of nine people arrested in a raid last month following a bar fight in Newport Beach.

Requejo is a member of the Set Free Soldiers motorcycle gang.

Investigators said two members of the Hells Angels were stabbed.

"It's been our belief that these people are dangerous and have the potential for violence here, and that's why we took the precautions we did," said Sergeant Rick Martinez, Anaheim Police Dept.

Among those under arrest: Pastor Phil Aguilar, the founder and director of Set Free Churches Worldwide, according to the Set Free Soldiers Web site.

"We are the original Christian motorcycle crew," says Pastor Aguilar on the video. "We're not your regular Christians; we really scare the hell out of the devil."

Authorities seized several firearms during the arrests.

Bail for those charged with attempted murder has been set at $1 million each. The search for five more attempted-murder suspects continues.
