LAS VEGAS (AP) — A lawyer representing biker club members in a federal lawsuit alleging systematic police harassment is claiming police retaliation following his arrest trying to advise a client who had been stopped on a traffic infraction.

Attorney Stephen Stubbs said Friday he cited a motorcyclist’s right to have an attorney present during questioning Thursday evening by Las Vegas police outside a Southern Nevada Confederation of Clubs meeting.

Stubbs says he was handcuffed and jailed for several hours on a misdemeanor obstructing a public officer charge.

He’s due before a judge in March.

Las Vegas police didn’t immediately provide information about Stubbs’ arrest.

Stubbs represents members of biker groups including the Mongols, Vagos, Stray Cats and Bandidos in a federal civil rights complaint alleging harassment by Las Vegas and other area police.
