Motorcycle Gang Territory Disagreement Leads To Fight At Bike Blessing

A man who claimed that Harrison is Iron Horsemen territory is now facing assault charges.
(Harrison, Oh.) - A disagreement over biker gang territory allegedly led to a fight at a bike blessing in Harrison earlier this month.

The Harrison Press (link is external) reports a bike blessing was being held at the Harrison American Legion on May 5. Harrison Police were called to investigate an assault at the event.

Jeffrey S. Raisor, 56, told another rider that he could not wear an Outlaw shirt on Iron Horsemen territory. When the other rider did not remove his Outlaw shirt, Raison allegedly punched him.
Raisor then allegedly punched the victim’s girlfriend in the face. The man ran to help his girlfriend and was knocked to the ground by Raisor.

Raisor allegedly called the woman derogatory names and told her to shut up.
Officers did observe scratch marks on Raisor’s chest and small lacerations on the right side of his face. He allegedly told police that he punched the woman in self-defense after she struck him.

Raisor told officers he asked the Outlaw member to flip his shirt inside out because Outlaw members are welcome on Iron Horsemen territory, but aren’t supposed to represent who they support, the Press reported.

Witnesses at the bike blessing event told police that Raisor was the aggressor.
Raisor is charged with two counts of assault in Hamilton County, court records show. He pleaded not guilty at a court appearance on May 21.
