One of the bikers arrested at the scene of a deadly shooting in Waco has filed a lawsuit against the city, county, and police officer involved, according to NBC DFW. Over 170 bikers were arrested after a shooting at a Twin Peaks restaurant left nine dead and 18 more injured. 30-year-old Matthew Alan Clendennen was among those arrested, but claims the arrest and detention were the result of a “fill in the blank” warrant, and therefore, unconstitutional. Clendennen, a Baylor graduate and former firefighter, alleges that while he had nothing to do with the shooting, his continued detention is damaging his management of a landscaping business and his shared custody of his children. The hearing to reduce Clendennen’s bond is not until June 5th, and the probable cause hearing is set for August 6th.
