If you are a country biker and often go on long rides, you have probably heard of the fearsome Hells Angels. They are one of the most feared biker gangs in all of the America, if not the world, and they certainly seem to be very proud of it. However, stand them in front of a professional, and they seem to crumble just like the rest of us. At least, that is what happened and was caught on tape.
The incident took place at a totally unknown place in Bristol, Rhode Island, at a place called Topside bar & Grill, a dive bar. According to a police report filed later, one of the members from the biker gang Hells Angels, John Remington was having a drink at the bar, when 56-year-old Carl Justice Nordstrom, who is not associated with any biker gangs, entered the place with 3 of his friends, apparently for a drink as well.
The in-store camera shows Remington approach the man, and hey shake hands, following which he seems to push Nordstrom suddenly.
Now, this is where things got dicey. While a normal person would most probably have kept it quiet, not Nordstrom. This is because unbeknownst to the Hells Angel member, Nordstrom was a former professional heavyweight boxer who was not only good in the ring but was actually good enough to finish his career with a record of 10-2-2, which included 8 wins by knockout.
Needless to say, Nordstrom simply floors the biker gang member with an overhand right along with a follow up left.
While one of the bouncers (the man wearing the blue shirt) does try to break it up, he is also assaulted as Nordstrom continues to smash Remington left to right and center while his friends seem to keep the other people away and occasionally pitch in with a helpful kick or two.
Nordstrom is then seen dragging Remington out to the exit and slamming the door repeatedly on his head before simply heading on to grab his jacket and helmet and making a swift getaway. Well, he did not get far before he was arrested and was charged with disorderly conduct and the possession of a knife.
Remington, on the other hand, suffered a shattered ankle, broken nose, cuts to the face and a fractured leg. However, the thing most wounded seemed to be his ego and he refused to press charges against Nordstrom. He was also charged with disorderly conduct, along with the friends who came in with Nordstrom.
Police went on to reveal later that for Nordstrom it was all in a day’s work and he had already put several other members from Hells Angels in the hospital in the past. The guy is obviously uninterested in the fearsome gang’s reputations.
The video that was captured is another instance of exactly what happens when an amateur tries to fight with a professional.
