Bikers rousted at Arizona rally sue authorities

PHOENIX -- Members of a motorcycle club claim their constitutional rights were violated when Arizona officers rousted them at gunpoint at a campsite where a man shot his wife and two others before killing himself.

The Sons of Hell filed a federal lawsuit last week against the Arizona Department of Public Safety and the Coconino County Sheriff's Office. Its members claim officers were trying to collect information for a criminal street gang database, even though they knew club members weren't involved in the 2011 shooting at a bike rally near Flagstaff.

A DPS spokesman declined comment Tuesday. The sheriff's office didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.

A similar lawsuit the club filed last year was dismissed without prejudice after its attorney abandoned the case.

The club has new legal representation and is seeking monetary compensation.
