Jail official: 177 bikers arrested, 2 out on bond; Working to get lawyers appointed

WACO, TX (KXXV) - The number of bikers arrested in the deadly Twin Peaks shooting is apparently slightly higher than we originally thought.

A McLennan County Jail official tells us 177 bikers were booked into the jail, and only two have bonded out as of 5 p.m. Wednesday. The number of bikers arrested was originally believed to be 170.

McLennan County court administrators have had to start appointing attorneys from outside the county to represent those arrested after the Twin Peaks shooting.

So far, 20 of those accused biker gang members financially qualified for court appointed representation. Some others were denied, while 36 bikers chose to hire their own attorney.

The Waco list of attorneys has been exhausted, so lawyers from Belton, Corsicana, Copperas Cove, and Temple were assigned cases Wednesday.  It's expected court officials will reach out to lawyers as far away as Dallas and Austin Thursday to assign more cases.  All attorneys have to be approved for 1st degree felony cases.

Right now, bond hearings are scheduled for June 5, June 12 and June 19.
