One of the men arrested in the aftermath of a motorcycle gang shootout in Central Texas that left nine dead is a retired San Antonio police detective.

San Antonio police and the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement confirmed that 62-year-old Martin Lewis worked for the department for more than 30 years before retiring in 2004. Lewis was among about 170 people arrested in Waco and charged with engaging in organized crime. Each person is being held on a $1 million bond.

Online records for the McLennan County jail do not indicate an attorney for Lewis who could comment on the charge.

A confederation of motorcycle groups had gathered at a Twin Peaks restaurant Sunday when a dispute in the parking lot escalated into deadly violence.
