leader of the Long Island chapter of the Pagans motorcycle gang has pleaded guilty to charges including conspiracy to distribute crack. Law enforcement officials tell Newsday (http://bit.ly/qpT6Oa) that Kenneth Van Driver was one of 17 members of the gang arrested in September 2010. Federal authorities alleged that members of the Pagans had plotted to use grenades against the rival Hells Angels. The 51-year-old Van Driver has been held at a Westchester County jail hospital ward since his arrest. His plea was taken at the Valhalla jail because of his poor health. A vice president of the Long Island chapter of the Pagans, Van Driver faces 15 to 18 years in prison. Besides the conspiracy charge, officials say he pleaded guilty to using a handgun in commission of drug trafficking.
