CA - Most charges dismissed in alleged motorcycle gang stabbing

Submitted by THUMPERRRR
Criminal charges have been dismissed against one man and all but one charge dismissed against another in connection with a stabbing involving alleged members of the Hells Angels and Mongols motorcycle gangs.
Felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon other than a gun, participating in a criminal street gang and being an accessory to a crime were dismissed against 55-year-old Michael Blackwood, court records show.
Assault with a deadly weapon and gang participation charges were also dismissed against Jonathan Smith, but he’s now charged with committing a crime on behalf of a gang. Both men are accused of having connections to the Hells Angels.
Police alleged Smith, 40, and Blackwood were in a red pickup following an unnamed member of the rival Mongols on eastbound Rosedale Highway the afternoon of Jan. 26.
When the Mongol came to a stop on his motorcycle at a red light, police reports quote the unidentified man as saying, Smith got out of the truck and pulled a knife on him. The Mongol said he also armed himself with a knife and stabbed Smith in self-defense.
Smith is next scheduled to appear in court May 3.
