On April 7, 2010 Ventura Police Department Detectives concluded their investigation into a domestic battery and witness intimidation case by serving a search warrant at the residence of Ethan Akins. Akins is a member of the Ventura Chapter of the Hell’s Angels.

Investigators learned that Akins allegedly battered his girlfriend, then used his status as a member of the Hell’s Angels to dissuade her from calling the police and cooperating with the investigation. Akins was not home at the time of the search warrant, but turned himself in later in the same afternoon.

He was booked into Ventura County Jail for 243(e)(1) pc – Domestic Battery; 136.1 pc – Witness Intimidation; and 186.22 pc – Street Terrorism.
