A high profile Hells Angel was in a Kelowna court room, Wednesday.
Joseph Bruce Skreptak appeared before a Supreme Court Justice, for a bail hearing, on possession of a controlled substance, break and enter, aggravated assault with intent, uttering threats and a host of fire arm charges.
Skreptak, said to be one of the founding members of the Kelowna Chapter of the Hells Angels, was arrested in November of 2010 after he and four others were pulled over for speeding near Salmon Arm.
Inside the car police found a number of weapons and a small quantity of drugs. Skreptak is also charged with break and enter at a home in Rutland, where he allegedly assaulted two men who were inside.
The Hells Angel was out on bail, but a warrant was issued for his arrest last week, he turned himself in on Friday. He will spend the weekend in jail and appear before the courts again on Monday to fix a date for a hearing.
