LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Nevada judge has declared a mistrial in the case against eight Hells Angels in a December 2008 wedding chapel brawl with rival Mongols motorcycle club members.

Clark County District Court Judge Michael Villani ruled Wednesday that prosecutors failed to fully turn over evidence to defense attorneys as required.

It would have been the seventh day in the trial of eight of 13 men who pleaded not guilty after their July 2010 indictment. Each was accused of attempted murder, battery, assault, conspiracy and taking part in activities of a criminal gang.

Six people were hurt in the melee at A Special Memory Wedding Chapel, including two who received stab wounds.

Defense attorneys say their clients were acting in self-defense.
