Yager Denied Bail

October 21, 2014

All Posts, News

The strange and tragic case of Randy Mark “Mad” Yager crept a little closer to its terrible conclusion yesterday. A federal magistrate judge named Bernard G. Skomal ruled that Yager was a flight risk and denied him bail on charges in a 17-year-old racketeering indictment.

Specifically, Yager is charged with:

  • Being “the regional president of the Chicago Region, and a member and president of the Gary Chapter of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club.”
  • Being “employed by and associated with…the Chicago Region of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club.”
  • Committing with twelve other men, “an act involving robbery…on or about March 19, 1994, in Cook County, in the Northern District of Illinois.”
  • Conspiring with six other men “to confront members of the Invaders Motorcycle Club” “on or about June 26, 1994, in Lake County, in the Northern District of Indiana.”
  • And of conspiring “on or about September 25, 1994, in the Western District of New York and elsewhere” with seven other men “to kill members of the Hell’s (sic) Angels Motorcycle Club, and in furtherance thereof, one or more of said conspirators did travel to Erie County, New York, while armed with dangerous weapons, to confront members of the Hell’s (sic) Angels Motorcycle Club.”

Yager will remain at the Western Regional Detention Facility in San Diego until his next court appearance on October 30. He is now represented by a federal public defender named Caroline Livett.


Yager was captured last Wednesday night in Rosarito, Mexico just south of Tijuana by Mexican State Police acting on a request by the United States Marshalls Service. Yager and his common law wife, Margie Jelovcic, were obviously under surveillance. According to NBC, “Marshals tracked the suspect to a possible location in Mexico…. They asked Mexican authorities to arrest a man who fit Yager’s description at a bar near Rosarito.”

Yager told Baja police that he was a U.S. citizen named David Michael Dorian and provided them with multiple identity documents but admitted “after further questioning,” as NBC delicately put it, that he was born Randy Yager. Yager spent about four hours at a “Mexican facility” in Tijuana before he was officially handed over to Marshalls at the San Ysidro border crossing.

According to Mexican police, Jelovcic attempted to flee, was pursued and died in the ensuing crash.

Sealed Documents

Yager is accused of racketeering in a case formally titled United States of America v. Kevin P. “Spike” O’Neill, et al. Yager was one of seventeen defendants charged. The other sixteen defendants were all found guilty. Yager avoided apprehension because he and Jelovcic happened to be vacationing in Las Vegas when the O’Neill indictment was unsealed. Jelovich returned from the vacation, liquidated Yager’s assets and disappeared in September 1997. The Marshalls have disingenuously categorized her as a missing person in peril of death or degradation at her husband’s hands ever since.

The O’Neill indictment has remained open for the last seventeen years and there have been few filings in the case since the last defendant was sentenced on March 9, 2001.

However four documents “as to Randy M. Yagar” were filed under seal in August 2006. Three more documents were filed under seal in October 2010 and an in camera hearing was held and a sealed court order were issued in November 2010.

The out of state complaint issued on October 16 in the federal case now titled USA v. Yager is also sealed.

    What is wrong with you people commending this creature. He was born bad. I grew up with them, a friend married him and had 2 children. I remember when he came to say bye to them because he was going on the run. He is scum. He had his own brother killed. He and his brother would hurt people intentionally. Bikers are not bad people. Actually they’re good people, but Randy was evil from the beginning. He killed people, hurt people really bad. He is scum and prison is too good for him.

    “The Marshalls have disingenuously categorized her as a missing person in peril of death or degradation at her husband’s hands ever since”

    Sounds to me like the car wasn’t the only thing that got flipped.

    But you want to know the saddest part? Eventually the person or persons who are telling the story this is based on will end up writing a book, or be on TV, or something. And somewhere along the lines, they will impune their own testimony. Maybe one day I’ll understand how all of this is supposed to work. I mean, if the cops were really doing the job I think they want to do, they’d be locking up the criminals, instead of cutting deals with them to take everyone else down for the crime. Some organizations actually are organized crime with an ongoing enterprise, but the law is being stretched really thin and protects guys who pull triggers over guys who look at them after the fact and say really?

    The cartels are a fine example of this. They have killed thousands of people, and you could walk into a room and count 10 guys that have at least that many homicides under their belt, right along with the millions of dollars in dope money, and the constant threats and intimidation against law abiding citizens. RICO was tailor made for situations like that. Some of those groups have bodycounts that make Iraqi Freedom look like child’s play.

    What exactly are the bikers doing that deserve this kind of effort? I’ve been riding 16 years and have yet to see anything even remotely resembling any of the things that they’re being described as. I mean, Nada. Zilch.

    Of course, I could tell you about the nights I spent standing post in the early 90s and listening to the full blown firefights going on all around me in Miami. Drugs being sold in the open. Prostitutes lining the streets. People getting beat down and robbed. Rapes. Carjackings. Yeah, most every night was like that. The only time I’ve ever seen bikers involved in that is when someone else tries to make victims of them, and they don’t back down. If anything, they keep that stuff off the block.

    So, why are they sitting in jail while that stuff is allowed to happen? Because they don’t have all that bread they’re not making to pay off the cops? Is it a japanese plot to get back at Harley for what happened in WW2? They’re got to be a reason why they’re being singled out, and for the life of me, I cannot figure out what it is. Must be some rally scary people that someone would go through all the trouble over nothing. What a bummer.

    I have to say, if it wasn’t for the media blitz and sensationalism involved, I wouldn’t give it a sideways glance.

    Employed by the Outlaws? Where he was president does that make him management and make him no longer eligible for union representation? Does this affect his 401k and healthcare? I know it’s not a joke but this government is so fucked up if I didn’t laugh once in a while I would explode. Prayers to Mad and his ol lady’s family for their loss. FTF. SW.

  5. WARTHOG Says:


    Evidently he held a paying position in the club: ◦Being “employed by and associated with…the Chicago Region of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club.”

    Wonder what kind of yearly salary that entails? And did he get 17 years pay on administrative leave? What a bunch of bullshit.

    Jim666 – In the upside down world of RICO.
    If you first believe that all motorcycle clubs are ongoing criminal enterprises then being a shotcaller would be a crime and any association would be for illegal purposes.
    The problem is Rico cuts such a broad path its almost impossible to not be an organization and not be criminal under RICO statutes . If you have 1000 members and 2 different members commit anyone 2 of 35 predicate crimes in 10 years you are then an ongoing criminal enterprise. This is the way I understand it and was explained to me. As I listed in an previous post the catholic church . police officers union , iron order or just about any group could be prosecuted under RICO. Of course the goverment only uses it on who they feel like.

  7. Jim666 Says:

    So according to the 1st 2 charges, does that mean it`s now illegal to be a member ,president,or regional officer in a motorcycle club ?
    Are new laws being written ?

    For some reason , I don’t see the first two charges making it into a court room


  8. Oldskewl Says:

    The man successfully hid away for 17 years so there was no way they were going to grant him bail, regardless of the charges, bogus or not.
    I got nothing but respect for someone who can live on the run in a shit hole like Mexico and stay gone for that period of time.

    Whitey Bulger was on the run for a similar amount of time but decided Santa Monica was a better fit. You can bet they would have gotten Yager years earlier if he remained in the states.



  9. bcnasty Says:

    @ Popeye,
    I am laughing but how true. Being Catholic, if wanted, RICO statues could be applied to the Catholic Church as a child pornography ring. It is so open ended the feds basically have an open book on what could be criminal enterprise.

  10. Doc Holiday Says:

    @ Vago 1%er… Very nice! Going to have to borrow that lol !!!

    Give’m hell 1%er Mad!

  11. VAGO 1%er Says:

    “ladies love outlaws like babies love stray dogs
    Ladies touch babies like a banker touches gold
    And outlaws touch the ladies
    Somewhere deep down in their soul”

    Much respect to you MAD, you give ’em hell.

  12. Meh Says:

    The Catholic Church has paid out more than one billion (that’s not a typo) dollars in settlements worldwide to settle pedophilia and molestation cases, including hiding pedos in distant parishes. Keep in mind that this same Church isn’t lacking for skilled lawyers and if any charges were bogus it could bury the plaintiff.

    If a motorcycle club tore up that much baby butt then hid the perps for sometimes decades they’d be shot on sight.

    As to surviving in Mexico I’d expect a country that epically corrupt even by US standards would offer many options. Mexico has had a strong outlaw tradition for centuries. Outlawry was and is the only counter to corrupt governments in Mexico.

  13. popeye Says:

    That would be how RICO works.
    1st they asert that the MC is a criminal enterprise then they make the claim that being part of that criminal enteprise is a crime in itself.

    I could make the same claim about the catholic church ,law enforcement or any group. If 1 person commits a crime does that constitute an ongoing criminal enterprise? Was that organization formed for the sole purpose of commiting crimes? I could argue either way. The catholic church has committed some atrocities over the years resulting in the deaths of many.

  14. Sieg Says:

    And how do YOU spell “extrajudicial rendition”, boys and girls?

    Yeah, they just happened to be in TJ, and just happened to be noticed by some fedbacon down for the tacos, and then after a few quiet hours “having a soda” with the Federales, Mad 1%’er remembered who he was, and his Lady “accidentally” died “while fleeing and eluding”

    Yeah, that’s the ticket.


  15. RLG Says:

    Dear Rebel,

    Could you expand on the specific laws that prohibit being a member, officer, and employee of a Motorcycle Club?

    Thank you,


  16. ChongRRMC Says:

    Stay strong Mad 1%er!!! ……Rebel I love the video that accompany every story !!!!!!

  17. CN Says:

    Still searching for the obvious crime spree Yager must have had ongoing for 17 years while “on the run”. Surely there’s a slew of mayhem he left in the wake of this criminal crime spree. I mean really, a man so dangerous he cannot get bail awaiting trial must have done some horrific shit in what, 17 years? Truth be told, they know they wouldn’t be able to catch him again for another almost two decades even if his “hide out” was just across the boarder, he looks that Hispanic right? That allows that he would run which they know now that he won’t. Mexico is such a dangerous place that Marines aren’t “allowed” to venture into TJ on the weekend anymore yet Mr. Yager seems to have survived there. Too many things just don’t add up. I Expect that slimeball on America’s Most Wanted to cream his jeans on the next propagandist episode.

    Stay Strong Mad.


  18. Paladin Says:

    Mr. Yager is alleged to have avoided capture for the past seventeen years. Yet, he’s taken into custody, in what amounts to a “stones throw” from the U.S. border.

    For some, there comes a time when they will subconsciously lower their guard and inadvertently do something that will increase their vulnerability. Billy the Kid came back to collect his woman, Jesse James turned his back to known men of questionable repute. I believe that Mr. Yager just got tired.

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),


  19. Tooj Says:

    Dear Rebel,

    If that’s what they have, that’s some mighty weird shit. I just “confronted” my boss less than a week ago about some bullshit. I suppose I could have gotten fired, but charges?

    If I “confronted” you with the sharp end of a metal device, human or powder propelled, then that is an entirely different cat.

    Same old easily construed to mean what you want it to mean language. Fucking debaters from High School never could get the girls…
