A visiting judge has formally dismissed the case for Hewitt biker Matthew Clendennen. 

A special prosecutor had filed a motion to dismiss the case for Hewitt biker Matthew Clendennen that was scheduled for Oct. 5. 

Clendennen was indicted on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity from the 2015 Twin Peaks shootout. 

In the motion to dismiss, Pro Tem Criminal District Attorney Brian Roberts states: "Upon reviewing all the facts, circumstances, and evidence, it is the State's position that no probable cause exists to believe the defendant committed the offense." 

Clendennen who was part of Scimitars Motorcycle Club is still pursuing a civil rights lawsuit against Waco Police, City of Waco, and McLennan County.

“After being arrested with a “fill-in-the-name” arrest warrant, being held in jail for three weeks on a $1,000,000 bond and being held hostage for three years despite making several demands for a speedy trial, I am hopeful the civil courts will ultimately provide justice for Matt," Clendennen's Attorney Clint Broden said.

In February, 13 case dismissals were granted by McLennan County District Court judges. In May, an additional 15 were dismissed. 

The 13 cases that were dismissed include: 

  • Boyce Rockett
  • Narciso Luna, Jr. 
  • Mario Gonzalez
  • Marco Dejong
  • Michael Doyle Moore
  • James Rosas
  • Colter Bajovich
  • Jose Valle
  • Clifford Lee Pearce
  • Andrew Raymond Stroer
  • Diego Nerio Obledo
  • William Redding
  • Jorge Daniel Salinas
