|The event was at the Topside Bar & Grill, a bar in Bristol, Rhode Island. John Remington, a member of the Hells Angels was having a drink when 56-year-old Carl Justice Nordstrom, a biker without gang affiliation, entered the bar with three of his companions.|
Unbeknownst to the Hells Angel, Nordstrom was a former professional heavyweight boxer who finished his career with a record of 10-2-2, including 8 wins by knockout. He didn’t get far before being arrested and was charged with disorderly conduct and possession of a knife. Despite being taken to hospital suffering a broken nose, fractured leg, and cuts to the face, Remington refused to press charges. He too was charged with disorderly conduct.
