(KMOV) – A former Uplands Park police officer faces charges after he allegedly attacked and robbed a member of a rival motorcycle club on Nov. 30.

Lamont “Puff” Aikens, 38, was charged with first-degree robbery and assault.

Police say Aikens, a member of the Hell’s Lovers motorcycle club, robbed and beat the victim during a charity event at the Masonic Lodge in the 4500 block of Olive St. around 11:30 p.m.

The charges come three years after Aikens killed an innocent driver during a police chase. The driver’s death eventually led to a $3 million wrongful death judgment.

Aikens is in custody on a $200,000 cash-only bond. His next hearing is scheduled for Jan. 14, 2014.
