BOSSIER CITY, LA (KSLA) - (VIDEO)

One man versus 3 dozen bikers.

A Bossier City bar owner stands his ground against dozens of bikers, telling them they're not welcomed at his establishment. And his encounter with the bikers, who were allegedly threatening to kill other bikers from another motorcycle club, was captured on surveillance video,  

"They act like 6-year-olds," says Ed Jackson, a retired Shreveport police officer of 20 years, talking about the biker gang mentality in general.

"If they ain't got a gang backing them up, they have no backbone."

Jackson bought this bar, now named Rack2Rack, located off I-20 near Diamond Jacks Boulevard about a year and a half ago.

"It was a Bandidos hangout. They don't like it now because they're not welcomed," explains Jackson.

He adds he runs a clean and safe bar which caters to many avid pool players. But this past Saturday night, Jackson says members of the Bandidos, Gray Ghosts and OK Riders Motorcycle Club members rolled up outside his bar.  

However, instead of locking the doors and hunkering down inside, Jackson says he walked outside and confronted them before they could reach his front doors.

"I stepped up and told them up front, you're not welcomed."

Jackson says one biker threw something in his direction, shattering one of the bar's front doors, but he still stood his ground. He adds the encounter lasted about 5 minutes before the bikers finally began riding off when they could hear sirens in the distance getting closer and closer.

When asked if he was intimidated at any time, the former police officer answered with, "No. I dealt with the Bloods and Crips back in the late 80's. They ain't nothing compared to them." 

Bossier City Police report arresting 30-year-old Eric Lee Pameticky of Tulsa, Oklahoma. He was booked on a charge of illegal carrying a weapon, careless operation, and resisting arrest
