The fifth of six bikers charged in sealed indictments last week for their alleged involvement in the Twin Peaks biker shootout was arrested Friday evening, county officials said.

William Joseph Flowers, 41, was booked into the McLennan County Jail on a first-degree felony engaging in organized crime charge. A McLennan County grand jury indicted 48 more bikers last week in the shootout that left nine people dead and two dozen others injured, bringing the total to 154 indictments on identical charges.

Six of the indictments returned last week were sealed, because the bikers had not yet been arrested in the case.

Jail officials confirmed Flowers was booked into custody at about 5 p.m. Friday. Sources said because of the timing of the arrest and the paperwork process, the indictment will be unsealed Monday.

By Friday, James Byron Hardin, 38, Richard Dewayne Smith, 39, and Richard Clarence Lockhart, 46, Keith McCallum, 47, and Flowers had been arrested on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity.

Hardin, Smith, Lockhart and McCallum have been released after posting bond. Flowers remained in jail Friday on a $250,000 surety bond, according to county records.
