Police say Hells Angels convention caused no major problems
Police officers from across the country were brought into Saskatoon this weekend to help monitor a national Hells Angels meeting in the city.
"But there was nothing on a large scale that was a problem at all, so we feel like the weekend went well," said Alyson Edwards with Saskatoon police.
Roughly 400 bikers gathered for the national run - a mandatory meeting for Canadian members.
"We are following in best practices that are established in other jurisdictions that deal with the same type of events, that's why we have other officers in Saskatoon for this type of event," said Edwards.
"No matter what some people may say, it is a safety concern or it can be a safety concern to have a group of this many people converging on your city."
The officers dedicated to monitoring the biker gang made five intoxicated person arrests, two impaired driving charges, two drug charges and had one breach of condition.
Overall, 265 tickets were issued under the traffic safety act.
