Jeremy McCubbin, an alleged leader of the Skinhead Dogs, a Ventura racist skinhead gang, appeared in Ventura County court for a preliminary hearing on April 7, 2008.
McCubbin, 34, is charged with assault with a deadly weapon for the benefit of a criminal street gang, unlawful driving or taking of a vehicle, and street terrorism. Testimony at a preliminary hearing revealed that an altercation developed regarding a female acquaintance, which allegedly culminated in McCubbin, Allen McKay, Eric Nestroyl and another man confronting the victim. McCubbin allegedly threatened the victim with a shotgun.
McCubbin and Nestroyl were arrested in a stolen vehicle in which authorities discovered a shotgun. Nestroyl, 38, and McKay, 26, have been charged with assault and weapons violations.
McKay testified against McCubbin at a preliminary hearing and alleged that McCubbin's younger brother had threatened McKay's father in an effort to dissuade McKay from testifying. Additionally, McCubbin's alleged girlfriend, Kristin Spellins, was arrested during the second week of April for witness intimidation for the benefit of the Skinhead Dogs. A female witness testified at the preliminary hearing that Kristin threatened to kill her if she testified.
