Motorcycle Murdered By Raging, Xbox-Deprived Stepson

Motorcycle Murdered By Raging, Xbox-Deprived Stepson

A 19-year-old man from St. George, Utah, faces felony domestic abuse criminal mischief charges after allegedly beating the living hell out a custom Harley-Davidson after his stepfather turned the Xbox off.

According to a report filed by St. George Police Officer David McDaniel, Alec Young’s stepfather arrived at his home earlier this week to find the young man playing on his Xbox. The stepfather asked Young to turn off the console and stepped outside to get the mail. Upon returning and discovering Young had not complied with his request, the stepfather turned off the Xbox himself.

That is never a good idea.

According to McDaniel’s report, the teen responded by flying into a fit of rage, screaming and throwing television remotes at his stepfather (both of which broke). When his stepfather retreated to a neighbour’s house to call the police, Alec Young ran outside with a knife and began attacking the man’s 2009 Custom Harley Davidson FLF.

“He punched and hit the bike repeatedly,” McDaniel wrote. “(He) then knocked it down and continued to to strike the motorcycle until he broke the knife blade off the handle.”

That poor bike. It gets worse.

Young then allegedly entered his 2000 Nissan Maxima, reversed out of the driveway, and then floored it, driving the motorcycle through the garage and into the opposite wall.

“The motorcycle sustained damage everywhere,” McDaniel said in the report. “The front forks, fender, frame, and gas tank were all bent.”

I am almost in tears, and I admittedly have no idea what a Harley-Davidson FLF is.

Young fled to a friend’s house following the incident, where the police caught up to him. After having been read his rights, Young said he’d been “acting out” when he threw the remotes, and the ensuing rage claimed the life of the motorcycle. He told officers he had missed the previous two doses of the anti-anxiety and anti-depression meds he was supposed to be taking. The damage he caused is estimated at more than $US25,000.

Young was charged with two class-B misdemeanours for domestic violence simple assault and leaving the scene of an accident, along with a second-degree felony for domestic violence criminal mischief.

  • It’s a shame stuff like this draws more headline attention than something like Child’s Play.

  • Boy, I wish I could’ve caught him doing it. I’d have given anything to catch that asshole doing it. It’d been worth him doing it just so I could’ve caught him doing it. What’s more chickenshit than fucking with a man’s automobile? I mean, don’t fuck with another man’s vehicle

    • Agreed. There was only one thing in life for me that I valued more than even life itself… my bike. It was a horrifically bad investment in terms of outlay – usage ratio, but I would go to the end of the world to payback someone who did something like that.

      Two things you don’t mess with: a man’s vehicle and a man’s PC.

          • Turning off an XBox and “messing with it” are two different things. I’ve been playing games and had blackouts, never had a temper tantrum.

            Having once had a car keyed, and not even a good car I was so outraged I finally understood the above quote from Vincent Vega.

  • It’s ok. It’s only a Harley Davidson.

    It’s sort of like owning a gold plated blender.

  • This kid is fucking 19, no excuse. I’m sick of hearing about douchebag child acting adults making excuses for wild behaviour because they forgot their meds.

  • I think a medicated society is more frightening that a society thats allowed to carry guns

    So much wrong with all of this

    • The gamer DID NOT take his medication.

      Medication and psychiatry DO WORK despite what those Scientology propaganda exhibitions tell you.

    • I think the problem was he was not medicated. Now I do believe that they over medicate people who just need to learn to cope. But there are some people who need medication or they become a danger to themselves and others.

      • Thats what I meant – there are far too many over-medicated people who just need more discipline in their lives.

        As for the bloke above, I dont need Scientology to tell me what to think. I am smart enough to make come up with my own opinions
