Police on Monday searched the headquarters of a well-known motorcycle group in the East Village, where they say a woman was assaulted Sunday night.
Police say the woman was left with head injuries outside the Hells Angels headquarters on East Third Street. She is listed in serious condition at a local hospital.
A representative for the group tells NY1 that police approached the clubhouse Monday morning without a warrant and then returned once they had obtained one to spend the entire day searching.
A lawyer for the Hells Angels says the chaos is just another example of police harassing the organization.
"I guess a lot of cops, for whatever reason, didn't have a chance to go to Iraq so they decided to recreate Fallujah here on Third Street or maybe they're upset that Will Smith is getting all the publicity for his new movie,” said Hell's Angels lawyer Ron Kuby. “I don't know. This is absolutely nuts, this is no way to run anything."
Kuby says one Hells Angels member was arrested and charged with assault, but police say no arrests have been made.
