Another man is also reported to have required treatment after the brawl on the open street outside a bar on Södermalm in central Stockholm.

According to witness reports some 15 members of the Red and White Crew, a supporter club of the Hells Angels, stormed the El Cocodrilo restaurant on Ringvägen.

Armed with knives, tear gas and firearms the group attacked a rival gang, reported by the police to be either Outlaws or Bandidos.

"I heard screaming and shouting, then I saw a mob run in and out from the restaurant. Then they came out carrying a half-naked guy, who fell to the ground and who they continued to assault," an eye witness told the TT news agency.

The witness watched as the man was beaten bloody outside the restaurant before the police managed to break up the fight.

There are reports of shots being fired inside the restaurant, but these are denied by the police.

"They waved a weapon, but no one has been shot," said Stefan Nordemark at Stockholm police.

Story continues below…

The police detained a person during the night, with a second man subject to a warrant for his arrest.

"We have conducted a number of raids, including a club premises. We are working on the case and it feels as if we have a good situation."

F*cking idiot bikers. They parade around in leather jackets with big signs on their backs that shout to the world, "Hey! Look at me! I never made it through high-school because I was either lazy or dumb and so my only path to survival is to be a criminal in an otherwise civil society! Ladeedadeeda!" Identifying yourself as someone who has devoted his life to committing crimes, stealing tax money and supplying society with drugs and prostitutes definitely ranks as stupid to the nth degree.

Every time I see one of these morons, I want to hit him over the head with a pipe and rid society of another assh*le...until I realize that I would then be the criminal. But our police and courts are just too weak and bureaucratic to take care of these idiots. So what do we do? Do we push their beloved bikes over into the street gutters?

Too bad men and women are so equal. It seems we sure could have used some male police officers to keep the peace and maybe arrest some of them.

To B*tchslap - If I were you I wouldn't push anybody's bike down! You sound like one of those clowns who ends up causing everybody problems because you get shot or beat up because of your big mouth. You would do best just to stay away from these people because they are not like you at all.
