Funeral Procession Turns Violent After Nearly 20 Bikers Attack Father and Son

SPRING HILL – A funeral procession turned violent this evening, after witnesses say a man and his son were violently attacked at a local shopping plaza.

According to one of the victims, Richard Johnson, he and his son, Samuel Johnson, just left the Walmart on US-19, when they observed several sport bikers driving recklessly eastbound on County Line Road. Richard says one of the bikers kicked the side of a small brown car and then began to harass him. At one point, one of the bikers pulled in front of Richard’s truck, causing him to bump the rear tire of the bike. That’s when the bikers began chasing Richard all the way to the Publix Supermarket at Seven Hills, located at Mariner Blvd and County Line Road.

One witness, “Carly” says she saw between 10 and 20 bikes speeding around the parking lot, trying to block the pickup truck from leaving. Another witness, Montana Mills, says he saw several bikers hanging off the truck, “beating the driver senseless.” At one point, Mills says some of the bikers were armed with knives, what appeared to be a pickaxe, and that they were damaging the victim’s truck. Mills talked to at least one of the bikers who told him that Richard tried to run them off the road. But Mills says “that’s no excuse for 16 bikers to attack one man.”Samuel says he was also punched a few times but that he was uninjured.

Richard suffered a black eye, a cut to the head, and even had scratch marks on his neck from where one of the suspects allegedly tried to strangle him.

All of the bikers fled the scene prior to the arrival of law enforcement but it is believed that they are in the area of Merritt Funeral Home in Brooksville, however, that has not been confirmed.

Richard and Samuel both refused medical treatment.

The incident remains under investigation.

  • 10-20 crotch rocket punks driving like animals and then attacking an older man like its a “black lives matter ” incident. Thats what this maylay looked like, sickning, a launched cowardly attack on a man who obviously was unable to defend himself. To bad he was not carrying a firearm! Then he could have started blasting all them punks and sending their souls straight to their so called fallen friend. Way to disgrace the real men and women who ride for the love of riding and our race. This country has been disgusted with all the “black live matters ” un prevoked animalistic violence and now you idiots act in the smae manor. Your scum of our society. Try this on someone with a gun and see how many of you lay there and bleed out from bullet holes. Society is full of people now who carry to protect themselves and families from animals such as yourselves. Goodluck

    • To you whiteknight you are ignorant and shouldn’t say anything when you have no id a what really happened. He actually ran a bike off the road and hit the back of another with a female on the back practically knocking her off. If you were on one of thos bikes or your friends being ran off by a truck your would have done the same. So guns don’t solve problems and people like you is what’s wrong in this world. This is not a “black lives matter” situation you racist get the story right before you open your stupid mouth. And the scum is you we don’t need people in the world like. And please you are no white knight and dont deserve that type of name. I feel bad for your family you would be the one to kill someone who is innocent and acting on emotion. Ha white knight my ass.

  • i think a lot of you, need to go back to school, to learn how to spell, words right,

    Tuesday, 4 April 2017, 1:06 pm
  • I know alot of bikers in the good old sun shine state most of them drive harleys n prowings and drive respectable they follow the law n thats why they have clean records n concealed care permits .now there is always the barely leagle bike owners who like to show off and a good percent of them will probably loose there life trying to show off but dont let the young show offs get you cocky drivers pist off cause thats when you might act a fool and take out the dad that never breaks the law n rides a bike because he injoys a ride in the sun shine state cause then ur dealing with educated people of all sides of the law n community looking to deal with the person in a car that choose to get cocky that guy usually ends up in a cell praying another biker dont find out why they are there . just saying . be respectful .sounds like the guy n the truck acted disrespectful. But the bikers should have acted less barbaric. And just let the law deal with the guy .use ur heads people n grow some common sence

    Tuesday, 4 April 2017, 7:15 am
    • I completely agree with you but this situation he was not being disrespectful the only thing he actually did was tell the bikers to move out the way

  • its a good thing for all that these Bikers obviously aren’t 1% ers

    Monday, 3 April 2017, 9:42 pm
  • 1st some guy commented about stand your ground law which does not apply in a parking lot. 2nd just because someone cut you off , if that is in fact what happened doesn’t give any of them the right to take violent action. Riding a bike DOES NOT GIVE YOU SPECIAL RIGHTS. They were involved with road rage and deserve to lose their licenses since they have no self control.

    Monday, 3 April 2017, 8:47 pm
  • Street bikes are so unsafe. When have you ever seen someone ride one slowly and safely. the bikers probably cut the guy off and we’re driving crazy going in and out of traffic. I wouldn’t be surprised if they weren’t wearing a helmet either. Bikers need to realize, YOU don’t own the road!!

  • people are sick and twisted. just bc they have a biased prejudice they place judgement on the lives of others. its what holds us back from advancing fundamentally as a species

    Sunday, 2 April 2017, 8:08 pm
  • This was NOT A FUNERAL PROCESSION!!!!!!! It was a memorial ride to HONOR ( Ha!! ) a fallen friend. Just a suggestion for the future: want a memorial ride contact sherriff’s office, ASK FOR AN ESCORT ( EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO PAY FOR IT – YOUR FRIEND SHOULD BE WORTH IT RIGHT ?? ) , maybe an off duty officer or 2 needs extra money & will help out. Any thing happens, you have an officer right there. Problem solved. I GUARANTEE YOU WON’T DO IT- NO FUN IN BEING CHAPERONED.

    Sunday, 2 April 2017, 1:50 pm
  • I have been a biker just about my entire life. This shit disgust me. No excuse for this crap. If the driver did something to provoke this, get his plate. That simple. If you think your bad ass because your with your buddys, your time will come sure as daylight! Been around long enough to know.

    Sunday, 2 April 2017, 11:55 am
  • Technically, the guy didn’t do anything wrong if he saw a window and pulled in between the bikers. Obviously it wasn’t a legal funeral procession because there would be cops escorting them, their lights would be on, and if they were smart enough the riders would have stuck together. How can you be mad that he pulled in where he saw room to pull in? Then the chick who cuts him off because she just has to get him back.. seriously? Maybe since he is a bit older he wasn’t expecting someone to cut him off and then slow down CAUSING him to tap her tire. You all had time to chase the guy and his innocent son to Publix, get off your bikes, and beat the guy and his son. Then you use your friends funeral as a convenient excuse to leave the scene. If nothing is going to come out of it because you were ‘right’ and none of you are going to get arrested then why are you on here defending yourselves? ?

    Sunday, 2 April 2017, 12:14 am
  • Look at the old man & his son. They BOTH are smirking in 2 of the pictures!!! Would any one be smirking if they had been terrorized???? HE & HIS SON ARE NOT INNOCENT AS THEY CLAIM. REDNECKS LOOKING TO START ANYTHING THEY CAN . BUT, BIKE RIDERS AREN’T INNOCENT EITHER. They didn’t call the law probably because they’d been drinking already. Hernando county has AN OVERLOAD OF BULLIES. PLEASE GET TOGETHER & TAKE EACH OTHER OUT.IT WILL MAKE HERNANDO COUNTY MUCH NICER ONCE YOU AREALL GONE!!! I GUARANTEE YOUR DECEASED FRIEND IS DISGRACED NOW BY YOUR ACTIONS.I GUARANTEE IS ALSO REFLECTS ON HIS LOVED ONES. WHAT A SHAME.

  • These bikers better be Damn glad the guy in the truck didn’t have a gun. It would have been a clean shoot. I wish they would surround me like that. I got something for ya. It’s called Ol’ Painless.

  • WoW, just wow. You are all adults?

  • It is an inevitability that when groups of people come together, they bring their intelligence down to the lowest common denominator. In fact, they will often try to out do one another, in measure of idiocy to prove to others their devotion to the group.

    Did any one of these bikers hold others back? Or would doing so, bring about a banishment from the rest?

    The older I grow in years, the more I find myself disgusted by groups of people, be it through religion, politics, even bikers. The extent people will let go of themselves, in order to belong to the herd is absolutely terrific.

    Don’t let the above fool you, bikers in general are okay with me, I always am on the look out, and they are usually courteous, I think they are a bit mad to drive them in this crazy state of ours with all of the bad drivers, but I understand it must be really nice to have that sense of freedom rushing through your veins.

    Not all bikers are a bunch of raving morons trying to impress one another.

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 5:05 pm
  • Gee, Tom. I’ll bet you’re really glad that you reported on this one! Although it confirms that your site gets attention.

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 3:46 pm
  • The lunatics probably left before HCSO got there because most of them probably don’t have endorsements to ride. I am not buying the bikers story at all and hope they get what they deserve. What a terrible thing to do when they were supposed to be on their way to a funeral. The bikers wouldn’t know the truth if it hit them upside the head. One lies and the other swears to it.

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 2:45 pm
  • First off, if this story is true, THE BIKERS ARE COWARDS, LI’L B*TCHES
    WITH A GANG MENTALITY!!!
    What a shame that you NEED YOUR GANG to WHIP ONE MAN…
    YOU ARE A BUNCH of COWARDLY B*TCHES!!!!

    If the bikers side of the story is true, WHY DID YOU FLEE THE SCENE
    BEFORE POLICE ARRIVED?!

    And this was NOT a “funeral procession”, it was a “memorial ride for a
    fallen rider”, according to: (You don’t know), who commented above..

    Continue comments, the TRUTH is somewhere in between..
    These thugs are COWARDS,plain & simple!!!

    Someone commented that these bikers are KIDS, that’s a LIE! They are ADULTS!

    My gut tells me there is more to this story than what this article tells.
    There is probably some wrong doing on both sides BEFORE & AFTER
    the Publix incident. Just MY opinion.
    HOWEVER, there were many UNBIASED WITNESSES
    at Publix whom have NO REASON TO LIE

  • Watch out for bikes.

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 2:31 pm
  • The other day I was cut off by a bunch of on bike on 19 doing wheelies infront of me holding up traffic. Everyone wants us to looks twice but it’s OK for them to act stupid and then put the blame on other drivers. That’s complete . They don’t own the rd and should have respect for others if they want it back. It goes to say u ride like an u will be on ur ass. Karma will show it’s face it always does

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 2:28 pm
  • Most bikers and drivers these day suck!
    There that settles it!

    Btw, 16 to 1 ? What a bunch of pansies!
    And the guys old?
    Come on …..

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 2:08 pm
  • Welp where’s all the witnesses besides these fools on bikes that say this man and his son were in the wrong? Seems to me that if someone was doing what they say this man was doing others would have come forward with an unbiased witness account. That isn’t happening and I don’t believe this gang of kids. Come on witnesses, come forward and prove that the truck driver is the one who started anything. Oh, that’s right. There are none. Hitting the wheel of a bike is different then knocking someone off their bike (where are witnesses to this too?) and no matter what this man may have done, it does not give these kids the right to follow him and beat him and his son up. I’d like to see them come at me like they did that man and his son. They would have never made it to the funeral.

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:54 pm
  • Ok everyone wants me to get involved so how about I start this weekend teaching all these “cycle sluts” a lesson ??
    Lets keep count of the number of times Karma pays them a visit !!! 🙂

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:50 pm
  • These so called “bikers” wouldn’t recognize a real one if they were standing next to them.
    In reality these so called “bikers ” nothing but a bunch of wanna be’s that that will never be “real bikers”.
    Nothing more than a bunch of punks………….…?

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:35 pm
  • The bikers in that group are cancers to society if this is what happened. A bunch losers who need a small army to attack one guy and his son. It doesnt matter what they were coming from if this is what they think is some righteous move then they are nothing but trash. Anyone who defends them are also trash, these are the type of bikers that get people killed. They have zero respect for the law let alone human life. If anything this was just the excuse they needed to show their true colors.

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:14 pm
  • I hope the little bikers try that on me

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 11:43 am
    • Me too. They’ll find themselves in a shower. A shower of bullets that is. Most of them have records and shouldn’t have had any weapons. According to one of the girls who was there and who held the man against his will, her HCSO friends said she’s ok and has nothing to worry about.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:28 pm
    • True that. I would of had something special for them.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 2:29 pm
  • Thars when i pull my gun and and see how the a## like it now

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 11:39 am
  • People just suck! All this he said / you said. And hate people are just spoiled bi*tches. Rode for years and drive every day. I’ve seen good people on motorcycles I’ve seen bad people on motorcycles I’ve seen good people and cars and trucks every day and see people every day that should never have a license. I’ll go back to my original statement people just suck

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 10:44 am
  • First off, being on the way to a funeral IS NOT a funeral procession. The procession takes place from the funeral to the deceased final resting place. Second, that many riders attacking anyone with weapons is uncalled for. Get his tag number and call the law if you were the injured party…………to do other wise is gang like activity.

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 10:27 am
  • Funny as hell how all the bikers in this thread bring up their guns & shooting everyone IN their argument about how peaceful they are.

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 10:24 am
    • We don’t use our guns and we don’t beat people up as gangs. How many times do you hear of us bikers causing trouble like this or with the way we drive compared to these midget brained thugs on rice burners?
      I pack a piece everywhere I go to include riding my Harley. We are peaceful compared to people like this story is written about. Look at how they are trying to justify doing the dirty deed that they did. It’s people like this that need to be an example of to get the word out through the brotherhood, I mean gang of thugs. Losers all of them.

  • To all of you people on here talking s***itsfunneh you weren’t there you don’t know what really transpired and to all of you people saying you would run bikers over you are all tough guys behind a keyboard I promise you you would not dare pull up on 40 50 bikers and say you’re about to run them over because guess what that would be one more grave and your body would be in it sub trying to be tough behind a keyboard the old man and his son were driving erratic not the bikers so get your facts straight he couldn’t be patient because there was a fleet of bikes so get your facts straight he couldn’t be patient because there was a fleet of bikes doing a memorial ride for a fallen brother so instead tried to pass around everybody in the dirt and when he tried to come back in because there was a dip in the road he hit the back end of another bike causing them to fall over then when being confronted clipped another motorcyclist with his mirror then try to run over about 14 bikes have sympathy for the guy if you want but I’m sorry and Tom lemons you need to get your facts straight if 16 bikers were beating up this guy and his son there would be no conversation with him I think they need to get their facts straight and they need to pull the video cameras from the parking lot Plaza and it will clearly show that is definitely not what happened so you guys need to save the f****** tough-guy act behind the keyboard know your facts before you speak on it because I promise you if 16 bikers or whooping on this guy and his son it would have been a whole different story he got his ass whooped because his negligence behind the wheel of a 3 ton pickup truck I’m sure the plaza has camera footage and when it shows that it’s not what really happened you guys are all going to be biting your tongues and looking like a bunch of idiots and those of you who have an issue and so you want to run over bikers we will be gladly to hang out with you anytime anywhere anyplace catch us up at Bike Night that’s a great way for somebody to get shot saying you’re going to run over bikers you must not know how tight this community is and how we stick together if you’re trying to dig yourself an early grave attempt to run one of us over

    • ants can kill a person if there is enough of them. Individually though they are nothing to even consider. In essence what im saying is you also are a keyboard warrior.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:19 pm
    • You know what, Tom has you email & IP address . So this is not really anonymous! So you can be tracked down if HCSO wants to find you! K!

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 2:32 pm
  • WOW! Just WOW! A-0 comments from both sides!

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 8:53 am
  • How many men does it take to harass and harm one man? They, the bikers, acted exactly like their stereotypes with their actions. Sure, be polite to bikers, no problem, how about bikers being polite to drivers and start with being men not cowards? The bikers were wrong in what they did, no excuse to gang up on people. Report the incident to the cops, what a group of trashy people to do such a cowardly act.

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 8:35 am
  • Melinda you are 100 percent correct, could not say it better. They should be arrested for threatening to run over a biker or anyone else. Bikers have rights too, and we will enforce them , one way or another,

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 8:33 am
  • Keyboard hero,s tough guys hidding behind computers. We have the same rights to run the road on our bikes . In fact we have more rights than all the low life fat people collecting there ssi and phony pensions with there big cars and trucks, Go suck some more of our tax money running around to your doctors and hating us who are able to ride our bikes around and enjoy ourselves in the sun. If you hate us that bad , next time you see one of us parked somewhere stop and tell us to our face. Dont forget stand your ground also works for bikers, you dont think we have guns. LOL

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 8:19 am
    • Whats funny is bikers come in packs like wolves never alone , whats the matter scared 20 bikers a old man and kid whats wrong with this story. Hay how did you know about my life can you see me? Looks to me like bikers prefer pick axes LOL

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 8:52 am
    • There’s a lot in that group that have records and aren’t supposed to have guns or any weapon for that matter. You people sure do have a sense of entitlement. The gang of crotch rocket riders (not bikers, bikers are better people than this gang of thuggy butt punks) have no respect for anyone, even the dead. I’m sure your dead friend is proud of how stupid his buddies were then to use his funeral as an excuse for breaking the law.
      Joey, come on dude show us the video from your helmet cam that you use when breaking the law by driving recklessly. I’ve been around bikers, real bikers for 40 plus years and I’ve never seen anyone act the fool as these punks did.
      I hope all of you get arrested. The law should have been called IF this man and his son did anything wrong. Felony strangulation and you all are proud of yourselves? You are what is wrong with our world.
      Stupid punks is all these idiots on bikes are.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 9:03 am
  • Would this be a good case of stand your ground if truck driver was packing cause I sure think so and if the bikers were in the right why would you leave before cops got there?

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 8:01 am
  • 20 to two? Big brave he-men.

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 7:59 am
  • I have been arpund bikers and bikes for a good part of 25 + years, let me tell you this, if you try to harm one which he did he deserved what he got! But i don’t believe that they did everything he is saying. Second it was not right to interfere with the congression of a funeral, hence why they say to continue through lights and stop signs safely. Each one of you nasty people whom wpuld run over a bike should burn in hell! Thats someones, daughter, sister, mother, wife, brother, father, husband, and so forth. If your ok with doing this then maybe you shouldnt be allowed to drive your a danger not just to others but to your self. Makes me sick to know that there are people out there ol with doing this and this is the problem with today no one gives a damn. But i can guarantee that if you were to ever kill a biker and faced jail you would care! Everyone has their opinions and thats ok because thats what they are but when you threaten a life, act on that threat you deserve any and all consequences! He hit the bikers tire to me thats attempted manslaughter, he hit her bike tire and he got what he deserved all because he had no patients with waiting for the funeral precision, disrespectful, im sure he wpuld of acted the same way if ir were him and his friends and family. But with this said, i dont believe that they started it! I have ridden and driven with bikers and lets just say they must be prevoked! Not all bikers are assholes! But again bike riders are stereo typed and thats what people see and think. Get over it! Each one of you whom has said that they would rum a bike over will get yours, karmas a bitch and you make me sick!

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 7:00 am
    • First off real bikers don’t act like the fools these people did. Real bikers would have called the law and not taken the law into their own hands. Melinda, you haven’t been around real bikers or you would know this.
      These kids are nothing but a gang of punks who have a sense of entitlement. These kids are a danger to us all on the road, be it in a cage or on our bikes.
      There will be arrests made and I’ll laugh at these idiots who are trying to justify breaking the law.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 9:26 am
    • What’s a COMPRESSION OF A FUNERAL?? Did you make it out of 5th grade, doubtful. This is pitiful grammar and I hope you don’t RUM over anyone This is soo stupid, gang of thugs, beating up an older man and a young boy. I can tell ya who the puss wads are!! I have nothing against riders, except the punks on crochet rockets riding like idiots. Keep it up, they will be digging one for you and your punky brotherhood. You might want to buy a few shovels, I think they work better for digging than a picax!! ?.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 3:04 pm
  • Thank goodness the funeral is over. Seems like it caused people to lose their minds. In this case, these motorcyclists are nothing more than a gang. I’m sure a few more will have to die before they realize it’s just not worth it. The fact that it took 10-20 riders, shows that 9-19 of these people are followers. It’s a shame people can’t think for themselves.

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 4:30 am
  • Drive like an idiot (bikers) expect people to shame you. I saw these clowns at Walmart, toooo bad they didn’t crash into each other. Get in my way, they will be back in Brooksville. This crap has to stop!

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 4:23 am
  • First of all these thugs are Not Bikers! We don’t act like that, if you run us of the road because you’re being an idoit. Then we might let you know what you did.. 16 guys on one man, never! These guys sound like a bunch of Pu$$!€$, and are lucky it wasn’t someone like myself who would have protected myself and my son, in my own conveyance with any means necessary!
    These clowns on these crotch rockets are brazzin and from what I’ve seen have absolutely no respect for the law, other vehicles on the road, and themselves for that matter…
    Glad the man and his son are going to be Okay, and I hope law enforcement gets these pricks before they hurt anyone else!

  • I Like Turtles

    Saturday, 1 April 2017, 12:22 am
    • I like turtles too! If the NINJA TURTLES were there , they would have kicked some biker s!!!!

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 9:59 am
  • These bikers are nothing but careless idiots who have made up a story. If you’re going to brag about doing over 160 MPH on your bike on the roads and put video up of you hauling butt in Hernando Beach, it proves to me that this group of bikers are dumber then a box of rocks. We’ll be reading more about them and more deaths due to their own carelessness.
    I ride a bike and there is no way in hell I’d ride like these fools do. If someone tapped the tire of a bike riding with me, no matter where I was going, I’d do the right thing and call the law. If these bikers came after me I can promise you, there’d be more funerals to attend because I pack a piece for a reason and the reason would be to stop a bunch of fing scumbags from ganging up on a person.
    Yup, let’s see these idiot bikers get charged.
    Tom Lemons is the BOMB!!

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 11:56 pm
  • too bad no one had a cam of this. some how im sure theres another side beyond his story. i doubt it was an unprovoked incident. technically if he hit one of the bikes and left the scene, its a hit and run. regardless if he feels he wasnt able to stop in time.

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 11:36 pm
    • Hey food you know they had a helmet cam or one somewere they tape everything good thinkin……

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 7:50 am
  • If it was me I would have plowed through those punk a$$ botches & backed over em again!! Made sure I squished their head!! Little sissies wouldn’t have tried that alone! Just like the BLACKS! Bikers & blacks have a lot in common. Both losers who have to hide behind their friends. Pu$$ies!!! Yep, u heard me. Anyone who has to have 20 friends help beat someone up is a REAL punk!!! Funeral?? Excuse!! It should have been a multiple funeral with 20 more losers. If u see a biker, just plow em down, Fock those losers!! Their gonna die anyway.

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 11:34 pm
    • Actually not all bikers are like this. Your spoken actions above against all bikers will get you in jail or dead one day. Keyboard warrior!

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 12:06 am
    • Say that to my face! I ride the speed limit, I watch traffic, and I’m as respectful on my bike as I am in my truck. If you ever “plow me down” that will be the last thing you ever do. Come on, should people in cages be dragged out of their car for every time a cager didn’t “see” the person riding their motorcycle and then be plowed over? I can name as many maybe more reckless cagers out there that shouldn’t be allowed behind the wheel of any vehicle. I can’t believe the ignorance I’m reading here. All these people hiding behind their phones or computer screens are real tough, yeah please walk into a “biker bar” and make your ignorant statement. I dare you! Oh btw most “bikers” are good family oriented people who would give the shirt off their back to help someone in need, unlike many Cadillac, etc drivers. If this group of people riding bikes was disrespectful in the parking lot of Publix that wasn’t right, they shouldn’t bully or frighten others, just the one person that was reckless or ignorant while in their cage. Well I digress, this was just me on my soapbox.

    • Says the man with a fake name and hiding behind a computer. Real tough guy here! You’re nothing more than a racist piece of. You’ll get yours. Also, learn how to spell properly before talking about others. You look like a complete jackass and backwoods garbage, which you most likely are.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 12:31 am
    • Tough guy…. Try me.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 12:54 am
      • Ooh my I am so scared, shakin in my boots. NOT.

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 3:08 pm
    • I see trees of green red roses too lots of biker squashed like ? so i say to myself what a wonderful world.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 8:20 am
  • It’s actions like this that will keep putting bikers in the ground. Call the police and stop acting as more the better and beat the out of the people. Then haul so your wuss don’t get in trouble.

  • Actually I’m a rider of 20 years, on a sport bike. I was at publix when they tried locking it down with there bikes. Their were at least 10 bikes racing around the parking lot tapping the Rev limiter/clutch in, people running out of the way, running to there vehicles and into publix cause the idiots were racing around.

    The parking lot was jam packed with customers and this group tried locking it down, doing at least 50mph in the front entrance of publix right a way section, people couldn’t even cross the crosswalk to get into there vehicles or into publix…

    Regardless what happened on the street , what they did in that parking lot was straight. They caused a lot of safety issues for kids and elderly by racing around like that.

    punks is what they are!!

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 10:23 pm
    • & then when it happens to 1 of your brothers you would do the exact same thing. Your lying to yourself if u think you wouldn’t of chased some down that just tried killing 1 of your riding brothers. & what they did was wrong. But in the heat of the moment emotions are already high from a friend passing away. There’s no way u wouldn’t do the same damn thing. Like I said. If there’s any doubt. Think about it being your real brother then tell me u wouldn’t do same thing.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:04 am
  • Wow. You are all losing the point here. A guy dies and you are all acting like idiots. Grow up and have some respect. The guy isn’t even in the ground yet. Not sure who the biker was but may he RIP.

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 9:33 pm
  • This is bs our brotherhood is strong . A bikers code is we are one .try to harm one of us you get us all . When it comes down to it everyone that gets what they deserve for trying to run one of us over and then they try to claim they are a victim of a biker hate crime. You guys have to be kidding me

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 9:33 pm
    • Your up man

      Friday, 31 March 2017, 10:36 pm
      • Yeah

        Friday, 31 March 2017, 11:32 pm
    • Good, stay together close, your easier to run over!! ?

        • Son, don’t talk to your mother that way!

          Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:18 pm
    • Brotherhood my foot. Try a wannabe gang. How stupid can y’all be? I mean really. When a stupid broad cuts in front of someone then slows down (brake checks another driver), she can expect to get her tire tapped. She’s lucky she didn’t end up under the truck. Now let’s get the truth out there and quit with the lies that he tried to run a stupid rider over. The chick started this and she needs to be on four wheels, not two. A sane rider doesn’t do that to another driver and they don’t put their own life in danger. Y’all some stupid fools and I mean STUPID.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:26 pm
  • That’s why there is a stand you’re ground law.16 and some with weapons. Breaking the law isn’t best. That could have gotten someone dead.

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 9:15 pm
  • Did the bikers really have picaxes, if so why???

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 9:11 pm
    • To dig the grave

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 8:05 am
  • I just hope the truth comes out because it’s not fair if the man is lying about the bikers. I have never seen bikers pull any of this stuff that this man is saying. I wasn’t there so I will not sit here and say that this man is lying or telling the truth but my dad was a biker “may he rest in peace” and because he was a biker … People automatically judged him… but my dad was a loving and caring man. He would do anything to help anyone. My heart goes out the biker’s fellow friend that passed, May he rest in eternal peace. Let the truth free this story.

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 9:10 pm
  • Would of ran over all them

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 9:00 pm
    • I hope u get run over

      Friday, 31 March 2017, 11:13 pm
      • I never knew so many people wanted to run over motorcycle riders. I hope to never ever hit anyone or God forbid kill anyone. I am the first to admit that I have a hard time seeing them on the road though. Witnessed too many bad motorcycle wrecks–not sure why people even ride them after what I’ve seen. My father-in-law was killed on his bike by a female drunk driver who blew a .374 at noon on a Sunday. You can’t even buy alcohol in Indiana on Sundays. He had on a helmet but was internally decapitated. Another I saw a car turned left into the side of a bike with a man and woman on it and I witnessed her leg get torn off. Those are ONLY 2. but there are so many more I could list.

    • & you sir are a piece of Karmas a You’ll get yours. You just asked for it. Next time life gets Don’t cry. This is the read why. Your a piece of & karma wanted to reach out & say hi. Fucking scumbags like you are what’s wrong with this world

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 12:59 am
    • would have shot you!!

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 7:25 am
  • My husband and I use to have a bike but no way down here. One problem is no one cares anymore about anything. There are bad bikers and bad auto and truck drivers. Too bad everyone couldn’t just get along. Life is short folks and fighting over road space is sort of stupid. Just glad no one got hurt worst than what did happen.

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:56 pm
    • I agree with Connie. Just traded my bike in…as you can see by some comments there are people on both sides of the bike/ car debate with extreme attitudes & words. TOO MUCH SO.
      Everyone makes mistakes. Some people just do as they please. WHERE IS THE RESPECT?
      All of you owe it to yourselves. That’s how you make your life easier. It’s not just for others it’s for You.
      FROM A BIKER TILL 2 WEEKS AGO….
      SORRY YOU LOST YOUR FRIEND.
      This is one of life’s tough lessons.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 9:55 am
  • The guy was impatient and hit a car tire first running her off the road then almost hit two bikers trying to pass the memorial line. There was no speeding or recklessness of the motorcycles. The only reckless driver is the guy in the truck who ran after hitting someone and wouldn’t stop. Sorry to all of y’all who think “all” bikers are careless. Car drivers have hundreds of pounds on a motorcycle and for those who think motorcycle drivers gotta watch out for you f you. A kid lost his life because of a reckless car driver who didn’t look out for the motorcycle. No one deserves to lose their life. Yes some of the motorcycles may of acted out of anger but that is because the guy could of killed several people on the way to a funeral. If you didn’t witness it and weren’t in the memorial line then keep your accusations to yourself!

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:46 pm
    • People were supposed to know this was a memorial line by how? Was there any escorts by the law? Where is the witness of the car tire that he hit and running her off the road? These punks were seen in Brooksville running red lights and acting the idiots they are. The reckless driver lost his life and we don’t know why yet. That investigation is not complete but go ahead and blame the driver who may not be at fault. The man was in a bad accident last year and still drove like a fool. The riders are known to be violent and some to abuse drugs. You can’t take the law into your own hands even when you are angry. My God use your head.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 7:15 pm
      • To wow just wow shut your mouth you don’t know what your talking about. Bottom line no car driver should run anyone off the road let alone a biker what the is wrong with you!! We can do without people like you!

        Friday, 5 May 2017, 1:55 pm
  • Were getting tired of seeing our friends and family run over by careless tough guys hiding in cages. Most people who act so tough over a computer would never even walk in a bar where a bike is parked at, Yet behind there key board or in there cage there tough guys.

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:38 pm
    • As a biker and not a rider like these idiots in the story, I’m getting tired of seeing them give us bikers a bad name. I’m sick and tired of seeing these punks think they are above the law and bragging that they won’t get arrested. Meanwhile they have posted pics of themselves being stopped by the cops and they are posting pics ratting out what our undercover deputies drive. Not too smart of a gang of kids to do what they have done. I hope that they understand just how disappointed parents are by their actions. Talk about a horrible send off for a so called friend. I’m glad my friends aren’t such fools.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:22 pm
      • Grrrrrrr……..these are NOT KIDS..They are over 18, ADULTS!

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 4:05 pm
        • I consider anyone younger then me a kid so that includes a lot of people. These are all adults who act like spoiled violent brats.

          Saturday, 1 April 2017, 7:09 pm
    • Yep. Internet whippins are harmless. They don’t have the balls to come out of the house.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 4:12 pm
  • This story is BS it’s NOT what happened. This idiot guy was running bikers off the road. They were headed to a funeral of their friend and he was trying to cut in between them,when the bikers wouldn’t have it he hit one of the girls bikes back tire with his car and ran another biker off the road. FUNNY HOW HES TRYING TO PLAY VICTIM NOW!! The guy just wanted to be a and he paid for it. . .pisses me off he’s trying to get people in trouble when he was the one who started the whole thing and now he’s crying and boo-hoooing to police. These bikers lost a dear friend to them all they were bearded to do was go pay their respects and u got jack like this on the road. #keepcryingwolf

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:38 pm
    • Even if the guy in the truck was in the wrong tonstart with the punching and strangling was also uncalled for. The only reason the police are doing anything was the man was assaulted and the he called the police. Now had any of the bikers called for reckless driving behavior or calling for being hit he would have gotten the ticket. It would be a hit a run since he made it all the way to Publix. Everyone needs to watch out for everyone on the road. You have drivers in cars who drive like a holes and you have some bikers who drive like a holes it isn’t just one group of the other everyone needs to watch out for their surroundings to keep everyone safe and alive on the roads.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 7:27 am
      • To- Muriel ; Your comment makes way to much sense to be posted here…..right?

        Sunday, 2 April 2017, 8:37 am
    • So the bikes own the road? No one is allowed to pass them but that’s what they do all the time.

      Monday, 3 April 2017, 2:43 am
  • Screw your damn brotherhood. Bikers are as&@$les. If I were him I woulda ran all y’all over then backed over you. If course they all fled the scene the sheriff takes an hour to get to a report of a minor accident. I hope karma get those who hurt these people may you lose it n crash n burn

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:21 pm
    • What the hell is wrong with you?? Not all bikers are and ride like idiots…. you sure seem like you’d be a hazard on the roads though.

      Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:44 pm
    • Perfect way to get shot, Cross my path in a belligerent manner and Tom will be writing another story about a dead cager.

      • If u can pull a gun out from under my truck go for it! I just hate running down one of u scum mother fockers , the smell of burning flesh & hair lasts for a month! & last time one of U popped a hole in my gas tank! Thanx a lot !

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 9:52 am
    • Yo idiot not all bikers are like that if u try to run me off the road smith and wessin will always win over a truck

      Friday, 31 March 2017, 9:17 pm
    • This guy is an illiterate a$$hole and probably shouldn’t ever reproduce ^^^ F*ck you .. and if I was on my bike and you tried to run me over you would have a bullet in your head scumbag

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 12:34 am
    • I hope karma gets you. What piece of shit you people are. 2 sides to the story. Bikes ride like that because 1/2 the time we have to. To stay away from sucking like yourself. Way to go. You can hide your real name. U sir. Cannot run from karma. Dont cry next time something happens to you. You asked for it

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 12:55 am
    • To Bikers Blow; Of course it takes the Sheriff an hour to get there.He needs more money for faster cars.And when he does show up it’s ….well,I got to let y’all go no warrant,yo know,you know……..funny,no one in custody on this?

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 8:04 am
      • Are you really that stupid Roger? Don’t you think the law had enough respect for the dead man and his family not to further ruin the funeral? Had these a$$ hats not taken the law into their own hands they wouldn’t be looking over their shoulders now. Nobody is in custody because video’s need reviewed and the investigation continues.
        These [email protected]@ hats are posting pics from the funeral where they were looking out the windows and got pics of the law looking at bikes. License plates and bike descriptions will lead to an arrest of those who took the law into their own hands. No arrests have been made yet but that doesn’t mean none will happen. Investigations cannot be rushed. HCSO needs to do the right thing and make examples to these idiots on not how to act.
        Too many stories changing and too many lies.

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:19 pm
        • Well said…..Again

          Saturday, 1 April 2017, 4:00 pm
        • To-wow wow;
          It has been reported that it was a “memorial”ride,not a funeral procession.Anyway,memorable indeed…..

          Sunday, 2 April 2017, 8:34 am
  • I saw them cut through bikers who not driving wrecklessly on countyline and run them. Off the road right in front of me its his fault for being a disrespectful driver

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:21 pm
    • Use a smart person with yo grama.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 2:39 am
    • This is not true and it’s part of the made up story. Were you the girl in the purple little car? These bikers admit on their FB pages to drive like [email protected]@ hats. I’m sure there are unbiased witnesses and video from the shopping center that will be examined. The disrespectful driver was the girl who decided to pull in front of this man, put on her brakes so that his truck tapped her tire. She didn’t fall off of the bike. She had no time to get up then pick up her bike then run after the man. Chances are none of the girls could pick up their bikes by themselves. Those idiots are making up a story as they go along and it still gives them no reason to beat the heck out of a man and his innocent son who did nothing wrong. If the truck driver was in the wrong, they should have called the law instead of acting like a gang of thugs then using a funeral as an excuse for not sticking around to get the punishment they deserve and that would be to get arrested.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:12 pm
      • Well said…

  • I don’t look twice for Motorcycles anymore. I’m bigger than they are and they can look out for my big big vehicle.
    There are no good bikers.

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:21 pm
    • Mindsets like that are why people have a problem i ride a harley, i do charity rides and am clean cut working a 9-5 in a shirt in tye. Try and run me off the road and ill pull u out of ur big big vehicle and beat ur a $$.

      Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:48 pm
      • That’s exactly how I feel my husband and I ride Harleys we are decent family people not these punks on crotch rockets acting like fools

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 10:31 am
      • pull me out and you’ll find yourself with 3 slugs to the chest, good luck with that tough guy

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 11:16 am
        • Amen

          Tuesday, 4 April 2017, 6:17 pm
      • No, I have rode for years, the problem is these crotch rocket punks. I have the greatest respect for responsible riders

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 9:55 pm
    • I ride every day safely for the past 4 years no such thing as good or bad bikers just individuals that make poor choices alone or in mass. Don’t generalize.

      Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:51 pm
    • Maybe you should be the one run off the road. Sounds like you are a prime example of what’s wrong in the world no morals or respect. Get off your high horse and grow up and respect life because life is too short but of course you don’t know that. You should also change your name “your friend ” because you don’t sound like a friend at all.

      Friday, 31 March 2017, 11:08 pm
      • Nobody got run off the road. That’s the story that was made up when these idiots left the scene of beating two men. If someone was run off the road, the law should have been called. You don’t take justice into your own hands, but then again, maybe this group of idiots does. They are what is wrong with this world. Stupidity and they breed. Ughhhh

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 9:07 am

        Cash me outside how bout dat

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 10:54 am
    • Your ingnorance really shines through

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 10:44 am
    • WOW!! Your a real pos!! A scumbag just like yourself didn’t look twice, pulled right out in front of my best friend and killed him. And he was a great biker/ person. Not to mention my husband rides everyday cause it’s our only mode of transportation and he’s an awesome biker/person. Karmas a bitch and with the kind of attitude u have towards bikers you’ll probably end up hitting or God forbid killing one of em. Then when your sitting in jail or prison I guarantee you’ll be looking twice… Before u pick up the soap. There’s good and bad bikers just like there’s good and bad people and it’s clearly obvious your not one of the good ones.

      Sunday, 2 April 2017, 6:31 pm
  • How would you know? A lot of bikers are and hog the road so stfu if you don’t know what you’re talking about. If he wanted to run them off the road he would’ve done it. Truck vs. bike. Trucks gonna win

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:21 pm
    • The gang of punks story is not believable. The chick who had her tire tapped shouldn’t have been trying to act as a badass and pulled in front of him. I want everyone involved to get arrested. They have no clue about being a decent person and this gang of punks needs to be stopped before they kill others, either by their driving or their hostile attitudes.
      These types are what gives bikers a bad name. I’m sure their fallen friend is so very proud of their stupidity.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 9:33 am
  • MAYBE YOU SHOULDNT TRY AND RUN BIKERS OFF THE ROAD… JS LMAO BROTHERHOOD IS STRONG THEY WERE ON THERE WAY TO A FUNERAL FOR ANOTHER FALLEN RIDER NOTTTTT DRIVING FAST

    Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:10 pm
    • So supposedly the baker’s Hoover on these as somebody put it Jap bikes were able to carry pick axes and knives come on they tried to run over a bike they’re on their way to a funeral procession and you’re very fortunate that when he hit the biker that he didn’t kill and innocent by car I’m sorry it sounds like they provoked the attack not the bikers my son and his friends are in that group they have anti-bullying website setup I highly doubt that this happen that way

      Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:34 pm
      • Wow!! You should really sober up before you write.

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 8:09 am
    • BULLSH*T!! No excuse! I don’t give a crap if you were on your way to church, YOU DO NOT ACT LIKE THIS! YOU are what’s wrong with this damn place! Unbelievable!!

      Friday, 31 March 2017, 8:55 pm
      • What’s wrong is that people in cars don’t respect bikers and I myself have done nothing wrong and had talk to me just for riding on a bike. If he was ok with hitting a bike with a person on it what else is he ok with?? What’s wrong with you and that’s why this world is the way it is…because people like you and him!!

        Friday, 31 March 2017, 11:00 pm
        • I have been riding for longer than most of you were born.
          Don’t be an terrorist & you won’t be treated as such.
          The man may have made a mistake.
          YOU ruined your day to memorialize your fallen friend with violence & also made all bikers look
          Grow up.

          Saturday, 1 April 2017, 9:39 am
          • Well said Gina. The riders did this to themselves. I have been riding a bike for 40 years and I’ve never seen any biker act like this. These idiots think they are above the law.

            Saturday, 1 April 2017, 1:14 pm
      • Stfu

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 5:08 am

          Saturday, 1 April 2017, 9:47 pm
    • I have been riding for 50 continuous years now, and I’ve noticed an increase in automobile drivers taking offense to our community benefit, charity, and funeral rides. They now try to jump inbetween us wherever a rider falls back far enough to allow them to fit in. Other riders often will try to force them out of the mix, and that’s very dangerous for everyone involved, and should never be done by anyone not trained in such, or without permission of law enforcement. Two wrongs never make a right.

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 11:11 am
    • First off, if this story is true, THE BIKERS ARE COWARDS, LI’L B*TCHES
      WITH A GANG MENTALITY!!!
      What a shame that you NEED YOUR GANG to WHIP ONE MAN…
      YOU ARE A BUNCH of COWARDLY B*TCHES!!!!

      If the bikers side of the story is true, WHY DID THEY FLEE THE SCENE
      BEFORE POLICE ARRIVED?!

      And this was NOT a “funeral procession”, it was a “memorial ride for a
      fallen rider”, according to: (You don’t know), who commented below.

      Continue comments, the TRUTH is somewhere in between..
      These thugs are COWARDS,plain & simple!!!

      Someone commented that these bikers are KIDS, that’s a LIE! They are ADULTS!

      My gut tells me there is more to this story than what this article tells.
      There is probably some wrong doing on both sides BEFORE & AFTER
      the Publix incident. Just MY opinion.
      HOWEVER, there were many UNBIASED WITNESSES
      at Publix whom have NO REASON TO LIE!!

      Saturday, 1 April 2017, 3:03 pm
      • These gang members and some of those who hang out with them are nothing but trouble. Most have been in trouble with the law before and many of them have drug problems. Such stupidity and small mentalities they have. These self proclaimed gang members are nothing but trouble.

        Saturday, 1 April 2017, 3:40 pm
      • Well said

        Sunday, 2 April 2017, 10:38 pm
      • very true, I noticed that cars keep messing with bikers more and more instead of simply slowing down or allowing for bikes to pass they act wreckless and run their cars into bikers. Is obvious that if the bikers hit a brown car that made him run into a bike yeah right lot more going on here that what’s being written.

        Wednesday, 5 April 2017, 7:48 pm
      • Obviously you weren’t there because it’s not true!!! I was in that crowd and the guy in the truck hit my bike almost knocking me off!! get your facts right before opening up your big fat mouth lowlife! And we didn’t flee we had to get to the funeral its people like him and you that don’t respect bikes being impatient can’t wait for the bikes to go by. He hit my bike and ran my friend off the road. There was no wrong before, he wasn’t patient and tried passing through not caring what damage he would do to us bikers! Don’t talk if you weren’t there!

        Friday, 5 May 2017, 1:49 pm
    • I seen this happen walking out of Publix they took this a little to far this what gives bikers bad names today it like a seen right out of mad Max
