Builder Charged With Threatening Subcontractors

RIVERSIDE (AP) — A Southern California builder has been charged with threatening to unleash his Hells Angels biker gang pals on unhappy subcontractors.

Riverside County prosecutors say 47-year-old James Albert Bradley of Temecula has pleaded not guilty to grand theft, criminal street gang activity, possession of steroids and making criminal threats.

The Riverside Press-Enterprise reports Tuesday that the alleged threats were first reported to Murrieta police last spring. A subcontractor told investigators that Bradley threatened to have 150 Hells Angels come after him because of a dispute over failure to pay for cabinet installations.

Two other subcontractors made similar allegations.

Bradley, the owner of J.A. Bradley Construction, is a Hells Angels member.
