PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) - A Hells Angels chapter treasurer in Yavapai County has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

County prosecutors say 50-year-old Bruce Schweigert Sr. was convicted in July of several criminal charges stemming from an August 2013 bar fight in Cottonwood.

Jurors convicted Schweigert of threatening and intimidating as a criminal street gang member, assault, disorderly conduct and felony misconduct involving weapons.

Prosecutors say Schweigert has six prior felony convictions and previously lost his right to possess weapons.

During the aggravation stage of the trial, the jury found Schweigert was on pre-conviction release from the Maricopa County Superior Court while awaiting trial on felony weapons charges.
