George Christie, who has made a late life career of telling tales about the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, has had his honesty questioned again.
Last week the Ventura County Reporter, an alternative weekly newspaper with a circulation of about 35,000 in Christie’s hometown, published a letter titled “A Challenge to George Christie.”
The letter read:
“Ventura, SFV, Dago and So Cal Motorcycle Club charters offer you $2,000 to take a three-part polygraph test regarding your upcoming book, Exile on Front Street, and the Outlaw Chronicles television show. You were dishonorably kicked out of the motorcycle club, yet you continue to profit by using the club’s name and logo in the media. While a few in the general public may believe you, we were there and know the truth. We will prove that multiple claims in your show and book are lies! Contact [email protected]
The letter was signed by William Gunner Wolf, Ventura.
Christie was expelled from the Hells Angels in 2011. Even as a member, Christie apparently sought to profit from the status the club gave him and on multiple occasions he informed on club brothers and associates. During his last racketeering case, he became the subject of a sympathetic documentary about him called The Last American Outlaw by the British filmmaker Nick Mead. After years work and a significant investment, Mead shelved the film when he became convinced that Christie had been lying to him.
Late last year, Christie starred in a very fictionalized, television history of the Hells Angels and in it, went out of his way to smear Hells Angels founder Ralph “Sonny” Barger. In his book, which will be published next year, Christie goes out of his way to settle scores with Mead and The Aging Rebel.
He wrote: “I have been asked by many what happened to The Last American Outlaw. Nick Mead has never addressed it with me face to face, but let me pass on to you what I have been told by friends in his inner circle. Nick, along with a blogger who has been accused of misrepresenting the facts in his stories, caved in under pressure.”
In the meantime Christie has instigated multiple, bullying lawsuits and appropriations. He threatened to sue Mead. He threatened to sue a man who bought a motorcycle from his late son. He bootlegged copies of Mead’s film and sold them online. Jacqueline Mann, the widow of the late, biker artist Dave Mann, had to threaten Christie with a lawsuit to get him to stop stealing pirated copies of her husband’s art work.
Christie has not yet agreed to take the lie detector test.
