BALTIMORE (AP) - A retired Baltimore police officer and two other men have pleaded guilty after a brawl with a rival motorcycle club.

The Baltimore Sun reports (https://bsun.md/1L2WdXT) four members of the Chosen Sons Motorcycle club were charged after a fight in Essex with the Iron Order in June 2014.

Keith Romans, who retired from the city police force in 2012, and a second member, Alessandro Lori, pleaded guilty Thursday to disorderly conduct. A third member, Nicholas Burkey, pleaded guilty to second-degree assault. All three men received suspended sentences and one year of unsupervised probation and 50 hours of community service.

Assistant state’s attorney John Reilly says the fight was in retaliation over a previous incident between the clubs, and that the Chosen Sons instigated the fight.

Romans’ attorney, Joseph Murtha, says the plea was a compromise. Lori and Burkey’s attorneys declined to comment.
