Hells Angels Casino Murder After Truce Broken

Hells Angels Casino Murder After Truce Broken On September 23rd, San Jose Hell’s Angels President Jeffrey “Jethro” Pettigrew, 51, was gunned down at John Ascuaga’s Nugget Casino in Nevada, Sparks.
The violence erupted on the sidelines of a yearly weekend-long festival known as Street Vibrations and now a few months later, a tightly guarded courtroom has been hearing evidence from witnesses. In addition, a 278-page transcript has now been entered into the court record.
Ahead of the trial date provisionally set for January 17th, details have been emerging as to the circumstances which lead to the murder of Jeffrey Pettigrew.
According to a Vagos member testifying under conditions of confidentiality, the incident occured as a direct result of loose cannon Gary Stuart Rudnick nicknamed “Jabbers,” who was also the President of the Vagos Los Angeles chapter.
Apparently, at that weekend biker festival competing members of the two motorbike gangs had been itching for a fight. However, Hells Angels leader Pettigrew and a veteran Vagos motorcycle member then managed to negotiate a truce while at the Nevada casino. The Vagos veteran then recalled Pettigrew saying to him:
“Everything is going to be all right. I’m getting too old for this.” And I said, ‘I’m getting too old for this too.’
Unfortunately, Gary Stuart Rudnick was apparently drunk and continued to taunt Pettigrew, even after national Vagos officers had moved to calm the situation.
“Jabbers has a big mouth. He’s always had a big mouth,” said the witness.
An hour later, Pettigrew had his fill and punched Rudnick in the face, leading to the fight in which the Hell’s Angels leader was shot five times and suffered multiple stab wounds to the face. Rudnick is now facing second-degree murder charges while Ernesto Gonzalez, accused of shooting Pettigrew, is being held on an open murder charge.
As the confidential Vagos witness explained while describing the surveillance tapes to the grand jurors:
“There’s Jabbers putting on his gloves. The reason he is putting on his gloves is for one reason only, it is a premeditated thing they are going to start some action. This thing is going to go off.”
