Hells Angel bikie granted bail

HELLS Angels bikie accused of torching a police paddy wagon has been freed on bail. Scott Allen Orrock, 47, appearing via videolink in Sydney's Central Local Court today, is alleged to have set fire to a police paddy wagon that was parked outside his Newtown tattoo parlour early Friday morning. Police had parked the vehicle there in order to prevent any reprisal attacks between rival bikie gangs the Hells Angels and the Nomads. Orrock had complained to police at Newtown station about it before the paddy wagon was set alight about 3am (AEST) on Friday. Magistrate Julie Huber noted his previous convictions did not involve assaults or actions taken against police. Without presuming any guilt, she acknowledged Orrock had asked that the police vehicle be moved as it was posing a threat to the safety of his wife and two children. "Under the circumstances, I am satisfied that bail should be granted," Ms Huber told the court. Orrock was granted bail with strict conditions and ordered to have an acceptable person post a $10,000 surety bond. He will next appear in Downing Centre Local Court on June 7.
