Prosecution drops bikies case

FIVE Hells Angels bikies have walked free from a Sydney court just one day after another member was jailed indefinitely.

Bikie boss Felix Lyle, head of the gang's Sydney chapter, and four other members fronted a Parramatta court on Wednesday where they were expected to stand trial for extortion and intimidation.

It was alleged the four had fronted a car dealer and demanded a free sports scar.

According to the Daily Telegraph, one of the men, Mosta Jouayde, had renounced his involvement with the Hells Angels during a bail hearing last year.

The prosecution dropped the case and the five were released Wednesday afternoon.

It could be some time before fellow bikie Scott Orrock can celebrate with his now free peers.

The 47-year-old is accused of torching a police car which was parked out the front of his tattoo parlour an attempt to prevent a potential drive-by shooting last month.

In the hours leading up to the fire Orrock allegedly phoned the Newton police station and said if the car wasn't moved he would "burn it down".

He was given bail in the Magistrates Court but on Tuesday a Supreme Court judge upheld the DPP's appeal and put the bikie back behind bars.
