LEBANON, N.H. (AP) - A growing concern in one New Hampshire community over rival biker groups has put police on alert.

Authorities tell WCAX-TV that they learned one motorcycle group may have wanted to “deal with” another rival biker faction having a fundraiser at an Applebee’s in Lebanon Tuesday evening.

Police notified the restaurant and it closed Tuesday afternoon.

Police say biker gangs haven’t been a problem for them. But they are posting a detail near the Applebee’s as a precaution.

The concerns come in the wake of a biker gang brawl in Waco, Texas, that left nine dead and 18 hospitalized over the weekend.

Police say they see no connection to that incident.
