Ex-member details beating by biker gang

(Continued)

SALEM, Mass. —

That man “was put out bad,” the alleged victim said. “He messed up with the club.”

Under the club’s rules, the alleged victim and other Red Devils were required to give the man a beating.

Did they, Camelio asked.

“No, we didn’t,” the alleged victim said.

Soon, his life began to fall apart. Barr, a Hells Angel who worked with the alleged victim, allegedly ordered him to quit his job. Then, he said he was ordered to attend a meeting, where he was told he, too, was being “put out bad.” “I took my vest off, my belt buckle, and turned it over to him.”

A couple of weeks later, he got another call. Brown, who was the president of the Hells Angels, and Avelis wanted to meet him at a Dunkin’ Donuts on Route 1 in Saugus, the alleged victim said. They had heard that he was talking to the “Outlaws,” another biker gang, he said.

On that afternoon, Oct. 15, Brown told him that he had to go to the clubhouse in Byfield, the alleged victim said.

All six men were there, he said.

“Sean started chewing me out,” the alleged victim said. “I was running my mouth about work,” the job he’d been forced to leave. “I tried to explain ... then someone said were you calling his brother a liar? I just shut up.”

“They wanted my bike,” he went on.

“Eli (Eliason) grabbed me by the throat and said if I reported it stolen,” the alleged victim said. That’s the last thing he recalled before coming to on the floor, a gash on his head.

Barr told him he’d probably need stitches, the alleged victim said. Then he said he was asked “either my hand or my knees.”

The alleged victim saw the ball-peen hammer in Barr’s hand, he said. “I knew I was either going to get whacked in the hand or the knees. I put my right hand out. I flinched a few times.”
