    Ormond Man Shoots up Outlaw Clubhouse

    DAYTONA BEACH -- An Ormond Beach man stole an AK-47 semiautomatic rifle and shot 30 rounds into the Outlaws clubhouse, claiming some of the club's members raped his ex-wife, police said.

    Matthew Shane Lane, 33, was arrested around 3 a.m. Sunday after a police officer heard gunfire about 75 feet away from him as he patrolled the 600 block of South Segrave Street and heard tires "peeling out" before Lane's white minivan rounded the corner toward him.

    Lane gave Officer Thomas Lopez chase through Daytona Beach and Holly Hill -- where he ran several stop signs -- and was finally stopped in Ormond Beach when he failed to stop for the light at Ridgewood and Granada avenues, hit a curb and got a flat tire, a police report states.
    Lane told the officer his ex-wife was raped by members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club.
    When asked by Lopez if he had been hurt or involved in the shooting, Lane said no. The officer then pointed out there were bullet shell casings inside his van.
    "Well, it is what it is," Lane replied.
    During a videotaped interview at the police station, Lane told police he stole the assault rifle from a friend, drove to the three-story, wood-frame clubhouse on South Street and fired 30 rounds into it. He said he threw the rifle out the window as he drove off.
    Police recovered the weapon, in pieces, after Lane directed officers to the area where he tossed the rifle out the window.
    The clubhouse was occupied at the time of the shooting, police said, but no injuries were reported.
    Since the early 1990s, several Outlaws, including members from Volusia County, have been sentenced to prison on charges ranging from racketeering and conspiracy to drug trafficking, firebombings and murder.
    However, when the Daytona Beach chapter was raided last summer at its former Beach Street clubhouse, neighbors said members kept crack dealers and prostitutes out of the area.
    "I was never raped," Lane's ex-wife said by phone Wednesday night. "That's completely false. It's got nothing to do with me."
    Lane had been a member of the Outlaws, and then became a member of the Mongols Motorcycle Club. He was kicked out of both clubs, said a former acquaintance who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation.
    "He's signed his own death warrant," the acquaintance said.
    Johnie Trail, clubhouse boss, refused to comment Wednesday.
    Lane has an extensive criminal history and spent a year and a half in prison for aggravated assault with a weapon, no intent to kill several years ago, according to court records.
    Lane remains at the Volusia County Branch Jail on charges of shooting into an occupied dwelling, fleeing and eluding and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon. His bail is $28,000. When a News-Journal reporter asked Tuesday for an incident report about the shooting, police didn't give any information about the arrest.

    Dude is sooooo dead but whatever. He should have made some better decisions in his life like not being a criminal and joining motorcycle gangs.

    That guy has to be out of his mind. He's effectively a dead man.
