Ex-motorcycle gang member convicted of gun possession

A former outlaw motorcycle gang member from Philadelphia has been convicted in Sacramento of being an ex-felon in possession of a .22 pistol.

A Superior Court jury returned the verdict Tuesday against Sherone Bradley, who used to ride with an outfit called "Wheels of Soul."

Bradley, 32, flashed the gun July 22, 2011, at a barbecue in the Sacramento area to an undercover agent from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms ad Explosives. He had the gun with him again when he was stopped by Walnut Creek police on Oct. 18, 2011.

Bradley claimed he needed the gun for protection because he was subjected to death threats after he dropped out of the gang.

Judge Peter Mering scheduled Bradley's sentencing for Nov. 15.
