OATMAN, AZ – Mohave County Sheriff Tom Sheahan caught up with some unusual Outlaws in Oatman on Wednesday (12/12). Single handily Sheriff Sheahan faced down the gang and was greeted by the “Oatman Outlaws” with a generous donation.

The “Oatman Outlaws” donate their haul of bicycles to the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office that they had rustled for the holiday season. MCSO personnel work closely with the Kingman Salvation Army to collect and distribute bikes for underprivileged children in Mohave County during the holiday season.

The Outlaws earn donations throughout the year from the public by staging an exceptional gunfight show at high noon and 2:15 p.m. each day in the historic mining town of Oatman on Route 66. Their gunfight show is exciting and can be quite loud, but what’s a gunfight show without shots fired?

The group, headed by Rod “Outlaw Willie” Hall and his wife, Sultana, presented Sheriff Sheahan with this year’s donation of 20 bicycles.

Sheahan said, “The Oatman Outlaws are amazing! This is their eleventh year they have given back to the community and they indeed make a difference for children at Christmas.”

“The Oatman Outlaws get a lot of satisfaction in making a difference for less fortunate children,” Hall added.

Throughout the year the group also donates to the Shrine Fund which helps toward transporting children and their
families to the Shriners Hospital for Children.
