MOTORCYCLE GANG BUSTED FOR HARASSING RIVAL BIKER IN EVANS

 

Five members of the Steel Horseman motorcycle gang have been arrested in Columbia County after they were caught on video confronting a rival gang member and forcing him to remove his jacket, according to authorities.

Those arrested include: Robert Deckert, 33, of Grovetown (from left, top row); Quinn Daniel Sharrow, 27, of Augusta; Daniel Cooper Inglett, 33, of Grovetown; (second row) Brock Wilson, 31, of Hephzibah, and Bradley Johnson, 43, of Evans. Each man was charged with felony false imprisonment, misdemeanor stalking and felony participation in criminal street gang activity. Bond was set at $18,800.

According to the sheriff’s report, a member of the Highway Gypsies motorcycle gang was at the Evans Cycle Center on March 7 when members of the rival gang confronted him.

“The subjects surrounded him outside his vehicle for several minutes, telling him that he was not supposed to be wearing his motorcycle jacket,” a sheriff’s report says.

The victim called deputies after the incident and showed them a video that his wife had taken on her phone.

The sheriff’s office wanted to stop the intimidation and aggressively investigated the matter, which led to this week’s arrests of the five men.

“It should come as a strong warning to all motorcycle gangs that violence, intimidation and causing fear to others will not be tolerated in Columbia County,” sheriff’s Capt. Steve Morris said.

A sheriff’s report says the suspects have a variety of jobs, including an operator for Augusta Utilities, an Army soldier, a Graniteville heavy equipment operator. One is unemployed and the other does not list an occupation.

  1. OK IF ANYONE KNOWS ANYTHING ABOUT M/C AND COLORS YOU HAVE RESPECT FOR WEARING COLORS ON EACH OTHERS TURF YOU DON’T DO IT VEST INSIDE OUT RESPECT OR IT CAN TURN OUT WORST THAN A LIL FACE TO FACE TALKING L&R

    • That’s BS. Gangs don’t have any turf, period. I have the right to wear what I want anywhere I want. What gives me that right is being a US citizen. Everywhere in the state of Georgia is my turf because I pay taxes here.

      Also, two or more people ganging up on you is lynching. When you are being lynched, any amount of force is authorized to defend yourself. That’s all I’m saying. Respect my rights given to me as an American or I will cease to respect your right to remain above ground. I won’t tolerate scumbags of any race thinking that they own public places.

        • This is America. There is no part of this country called Hell’s Angelia. This is America and I am an American citizen that only needs to follow legally passed laws, not the edicts of some leather clad methhead in need of a bath. I do what I want here, and these scumbags don’t rule any territory. And it is absurd for you to call me a fool when you have no concept of your own native language.

      • That’s funny right there!^^
        I can appreciate your thoughts but the MC world is very different and most MC’s are NOT gangs. If you think you can go anywhere in this country and wear what you want I have some ideas for you:
        -Go to S, Central and wear all red or blue (you can choose) for a day and just walk around.
        -Go to the same place (or many others) wearing a KKK costume.
        -Come to DC wearing your gun.

        There is a hierarchy in the MC culture and those that respect get along great. Those that do not know get educated pretty quickly and just because you have a firearm does not mean that you have the ONLY firearm. I am not endorsing what they did at all but I do know the history behind it.
