The San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Gang Task Force arrested a an alleged violent gang member Monday after he was spotted riding his motorcycle in Grover Beach.

Gang task force officers had reason to believe 42-year-old Jason Robert McMaster was distributing narcotics, according to a sheriff’s office press release. Officers stopped McMaster around 4:50 p.m. at Highway 1 and Grand Avenue and discovered McMaster had one ounce of methamphetamine and body armor in his possession. They arrested him without incident.

Officers conducted the stop based on McMaster’s violent criminal history, which includes fighting law enforcement and making criminal threats. The traffic stop was a high-risk maneuver, according to the sheriff’s office.

In 2011, two months after McMaster was paroled from prison, he assaulted and threatened to kill police officers who responded to a call that a man was acting strangely and yelling profanities at Santa Rosa Park in San Luis Obispo. The 6-foot-2-inch, 245-pound man violently resisted arrest and officers.

Several officers received abrasions and bruising during the skirmish which landed McMaster in the hospital with serious injuries.

McMaster is a known associate or member of a local criminal street gang, according to the sheriff’s office. The traffic stop blocked a small portion of Highway 1 for about 10 minutes.

Officers booked McMaster in San Luis Obispo County Jail on charges of possession of a controlled substance for sale and felon in possession of body armor. McMaster is no longer in custody, according to the jail website.

    Jason is a great person when he is not on drugs. Meth is the devil’ poison. Sad to hear about Jason’s relapse.

    White supremacist allegedly assaults San Luis Obispo police officer
    Jason McMaster, 37, an alleged member of the Sick Boys, a white supremacist street gang, was arrested on April 14, 2011, in San Luis Obispo on suspicion of criminal threats, assault on a police officer, resisting officers, disturbing the peace, and resisting arrest. In the early morning of April 14, police received a 911 call about a man yelling profanities. When officers responded to the call, McMaster allegedly charged them and then threatened to kill the police officers. More officers arrived on the scene to subdue McMaster, who at first followed instructions to get on the ground, but later allegedly resisted when officers attempted to place handcuffs on him. Officers were eventually able to subdue McMaster and place him into custody. McMaster was recently paroled from prison in February 2011.

    Jason grew up in San Luis. He has been in and out of trouble for as far back as I can remember. Somethings never change. I do find the “gang member” allegation kind of laughable but these days anything is possible.

      Sick Boys was a group/gang of drug dealers about 10 to 15 years ago, but most of them are in prison or have moved on with their lives. Some are still around, but it is my understanding that the group has little influence on the local scene anymore.

        Never heard of the sick boys but I have heard that if you do much time in prison you have to claim allegiance with someone. The politics of prison are actually complex from my understanding (which isn’t much).
        Jason was also on an episode of a show about a local bounty hunter years ago too. The bounty hunter was trying to catch him.
        I actually find it kind of sad to see someone like Jason, and a few others I grew up with, continue to repeat the same behaviors as they age.

      Looks like he followed the adage “don’t get high on your own supply”. Many Mexican and South American drug cartels have strict rules to not using drugs.

    This is the kind of stuff that makes law enforcement a questionable career choice. It is very dangerous when seemingly a cake walk and then a very small slice of a second can result in daddy is not coming home. kudos to the cops.

    i am not scared nor impressed by the alarmist rhetoric of Tony Cipolla. a gang calling a lone motorcyclist a gang member is ironic. if stopping a solo motorcyclist is a high risk adventure, these panzies better find another job. the body armour they claim he was wearing was probably normal protective gear that cyclists wear. at this point who knows if the meth was planted.

    Tony Cipolla forgot to include the link where SLO County Sheriff deputies made up exigent circumstances – essentially violating the 4th amendment – and has been included here for your reference.

      Wow, legalized fabrication of justification to target a man safely shooting a gun on his own property. Unbelievable.
