ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The president of the Black Berets Motorcycle Club is behind bars for allegedly threatening to kill a woman in front of her kids.
APD says it happened last month while Ronald Chavez was staying at another black beret member’s house and allegedly attacked that member’s sister.
The woman told police Chavez became angry over money he owed them.
He allegedly grabbed her by the hair and repeatedly punched her, then dragged her outside and held a gun to her head.
Her two kids, ages five and eight, were crying.
The complaint said the older child pleaded with Chavez not to kill his mom.
The woman says she waited to call police because she was afraid.
Chavez was in court Thursday to face several charges.
Thursday’s court hearing also covered another arrest for a similar incident in January involving his girlfriend where police say he made threats of committing suicide by cop.
The judge set Chavez’s bond at $25,000 cash only.
