LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas lawyer representing biker club members in a federal police harassment lawsuit is claiming police retaliation following his arrest for trying to advise a client who had been stopped on a traffic infraction.

Attorney Stephen Stubbs said Friday he cited the motorcyclist's right to have an attorney present during questioning by Las Vegas police outside a meeting involving several motorcycle clubs.

Stubbs says he was handcuffed and jailed for several hours Thursday evening on a misdemeanor obstructing a public officer charge. He was released with a March court date.

Police are confirming the arrest, but aren't providing details.

Stubbs represents members of biker groups including the Mongols, Vagos, Stray Cats and Bandidos in a federal civil rights complaint alleging harassment by Las Vegas and other area police.
