Cozad’s man was placed on probation in connection with the Elm Creek shooting
KEARNEY, Neb. (Nebraska)-A judge put a Cozad man on probation Wednesday for his role in a biker gang fight at a gentleman’s club near Elm Creek in July.
Court records show that Corey Brestel, 25, was placed on probation for two years each on felony convictions for attempted possession of a defaced firearm and misdemeanor carrying a concealed weapon. Brestel was linked to a July 31 shooting and assault at the Paradise City club south of Elm Creek.
Court records show 38-year-old Christopher Reitz and Mitchell Hahn of the Tribesman motorcycle gang were attacked by about 30 members of the Homietos motorcycle gang. Hahn suffered severe facial injuries from being beaten with a nut tied to a bandana.
During the assault, Reitz reported that a gunshot was fired, wounding 29-year-old Richard Rios of Texas in the abdomen. Court records did not indicate whether Rios was a member of either motorcycle gang.
Brestel, a member of the Homietos gang, took Rios to a Lexington hospital for treatment. His vehicle was later impounded and Brestel was questioned in Kearney by law enforcement. During a search of his vehicle, investigators found a sawed-off shotgun with the serial number filed off, as well as two semi-automatic pistols. All three weapons were loaded.
At last check, there were no records to indicate that anyone had been arrested or charged with the shooting of Rios or the assault on Hahn.
