CALLAWAY - Not everyone believed Paul Stevens when he said in June he was starting a chapter of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club in Florida. Stevens however, brushed off the cycnics as well as any mention of possible retribution for using the club's name and insignia without perniission. "I'm not going anywhere," he said, maintaining his legitimacy.
The bikers apparently served Stevens with cease and desist papers, then got back into their van and left, according to the incident report. It began with an ad A curious advertisement last month in The News Herald featured the Hells Angels skull and wings "deathhead" logo and called for 50 new members for a new Gulf Chapter.It said: "all races & sexes welcome."In a subsequent article, Stevens laid out plans for a chapter he hoped eventually would encompass any state touching the Gulf of Mexico, and possibly Mexico.
Stevens didn't flinch: "Until I actually end up in a courthouse, I'm not worried about it."
When Stevens began heralding his Gulf Chapter, ears in the law enforcement community perked up.
Local law enforcement wasn't entirely unaware of Stevens.In May, officers responded to an incident in Panama City Beach that involved an apparent standoff between Stevens and a collection of local Outlaws.According to the incident report, Stevens reported that four local Outlaws had taken issue with his selling T-shirts out of a truck marked "H.A.M.C. Store." The situation, as reported by Stevens, escalated until one of the Outlaws pulled out a gun, Stevens pulled a knife, and a number of his T-shirts were taken.After taking his two children home, Stevens apparently returned to the scene. "He stated that he could not hide," the report detailed."He had to stand his ground." Deputies were not able to verify the Stevens' account, and no arrests were made. If Stevens' T-shirt standoff didn't immediately grab the attention of law enforcement, his news of a Gulf Chapter did. "I've got undercovers circling my block since the article came out," Stevens said.
Stevens reported receiving death threats.He also was fielding calls from bikers interested in joining up.A woman from Britain, he said, seemed very interested. "She's been calling every two days," he said.
Stevens also was reluctant to provide a higher-up to verify his Gulf Chapter plans.He eventually did come up with a phone number, which led to a man claiming to be a sergeant of arms with the Hells Angels.Stevens had referred to him as an "enforcer."
The group of men sporting Hells Angels colors who paid a visit to Stevens arrived in the Panama City area traveling in a Toyota van, according to the incident report.
The men were issued with warnings for trespassing, and officers oversaw the handoff of legal documents which requested Stevens dissolve his company.
Stevens could not be reached for comment, but did leave a phone message following the visit.He referred to the overall situation as "one big mess" but continued to stand his ground. "I openly challenge anybody to take me to court over this.It's not going to happen the way they think it's going to happen," Stevens said.

Paul Stevens is a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club.The club, known for its outlaw-biker image, wants to do charity work, but he has been met with some roadblocks in opening a store and starting a chapter in Bay County.
"We just wanted to let people know we're here; it's no big deal," said Paul Stevens, who is organizing the Florida chapter.
Stevens stressed members no longer are the stereotypical bikers terrorizing the paved landscape.
"We are a political club; we are not a drug club.We're not interested in the Hollywood persona," Stevens said."The time of the biker being a biker is long gone.We no longer have the drunk, drugged-up, crazy biker.It's a totally different world."
Standing in his den Wednesday morning, Stevens talked of how the Gulf Chapter, the Hells Angels' first sanctioned chapter in the state, will focus on riding their motorcycles, selling T-shirts and raising money for charities.Eventually, he would like to see the chapter grow to cover any state touching the Gulf of Mexico, possibly even stretching over the border and into Mexico.
Bay County was strategically picked as the launching ground for the chapter.The area, with its heavy military influence and relaxed, beach feel, was viewed as a prime locale, Stevens said.
"Panama City, the Bay (County) area, is perfect for what we're doing here," Stevens said, adding he eventually would like to see international gatherings of the club here.
"It's an engine to create money," Stevens said of the Hells Angels' name recognition.
"Everyone else is playing games, while people high up are saying, ,Keep going, buddy,'" Stevens said.
While he concedes the biker club has had its darker moments, Stevens said a lot has changed over the years.He should know; he's been around awhile.
"The woman we all called Nana was the woman who sowed the patches for the Oakland Hells Angels," Stevens said, describing growing up amidst the club's Northern California heyday of the 1970s.
"The seven years is important because it helps us weed out people," Stevens explained.
"The reason there's no apostrophe here is that there's many hells," Stevens said, explaining the intended contrast between dark and light, between hell and an angel."It's a balance.We're representing a balance."
