Mongols’ spokesman nabbed for jaywalking in Boulder City

With more than 100 police officers patrolling the streets of Boulder City in anticipation of the Mongols Motorcycle Club’s gathering this weekend, chances were great for some sort of incident.

It occurred Friday afternoon. Police stopped none other than the Mongols' frontman, Stephen Stubbs, for — wait for it — jaywalking.

Stubbs, an attorney and longtime resident of Boulder City, said he would challenge it.

He was nabbed after crossing a street outside of the Boulder Inn and Suites, where the Mongols are staying.

“A truck was making a left-hand turn, so it had blocked any traffic coming,” Stubbs said, explaining that he scurried quickly across the street during the truck’s turn.

Boulder City Police could not be reached for comment.

Earlier this week at a town hall meeting to air concerns about the motorcycle club’s gathering, Boulder Police Chief Thomas Finn said there would be an influx of law enforcement officers over the weekend and heightened law enforcement.

  1. What does Nabbed mean. Does this mean he was arrested,ticketed,kidnapped?

  2. Wish they'd "nab" some of the muckety mucks jaywalking in front of the regional justice center. On a couple of occasions I've almost accidentally killed our beloved DA Steve Wolfson as he darted into traffic against the light outside of a marked crosswalk. Standing on the corner were several law enforcement officers watching with their hands in their pockets. Guess the laws only apply to some.

  3. So the fuzzballs nabbed a biker for jaywalking. They need to come to my end of town and watch the real-life version of 'Frogger' out here on Jones BLVD.

  4. hey TomD you keep posting on here on what great guys these are, yet you don't live here, o why don't you come on out and see if you can join the party LOL let me know what time you try so i can watch what happens.

  5. I really do not see the problem here.

    He is a lawyer and a person who belongs to an organized crime group.

    He broke the law and why should he be exempt. Either way he should have known better but wanted all the attention to say how they were just a bunch of motorcyclist, having a good time. The majority of people who are ignorant, or various organized crime groups, tend to believe them.

    In this case, the broken window principal applies, "take care of the little things, no matter how small, and the big things will take care of themselves, or never happen"

    Personally I wouldn't thing of "jaywalking" and not fully expect to get a ticket, however if I did I guarantee you I would keep my mouth shut, and not pretend I am the "big and tuff guy" who will "see you in court".

  7. I correct myself in that the first post indicated the subject was a member of the group and is actually just a "spokesperson" for the group as a legal representative.
