A Philadelphia jury has awarded nearly $10 million to the family of a woman killed during a scuffle with members of a motorcycle club outside of a Reading-area restaurant.

According to court records, a jury last week awarded $9.7 million to the estate of Tonya Focht, who had been fatally struck by an SUV during a melee that occurred in June 2015. The fight involved several members of the Iron Order Motorcycle Club.

Although the club had been one of several defendants sued, the club had been let out of the case at the end of trial after it filed a motion for compulsory nonsuit. That decision has been appealed.

Man shot outside Satan's Sidekicks motorcycle club in Cleveland

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A 63-year-old man was shot early Thursday outside the Satan's Sidekicks motorcycle clubhouse in the city's Collinwood neighborhood.

The shooting happened about 1 a.m. outside the clubhouse on East 140th Street, south of Aspinwall Road. The clubhouse, in a former BF Goodrich building, is not marked and has signs that say "Member's Only." 

The 63-year-old man was walking home when he stopped to talk to his nephew, who was at the clubhouse, according to police reports.

They were talking when a black car drove by and parked just south of the club. Someone in the car fired approxmately five gunshots toward them and sped away, police reports say.

The 63-year-old man was shot in the abdomen. He was taken to University Hospitals, where he was unable to give a statement to investigators due to the severity of his injuries, police said.

Other bullets hit a motorcycle and a car parked in front of the club, police reports say.

In tribute to Knievel, stuntman to attempt 3 motorcycle jumps

There was a time when a cape-wearing man best known for crashing his motorcycle was one of the biggest names in U.S. pop culture.

The daredevil: Evel Knievel.

With his signature patriotic jumpsuit and increasingly ambitious motorcycle jumps over buses, cars and sharks, the stuntman became one of the defining figures of the 1970s, simultaneously thrilling and putting the fear of death into sold-out audiences — in this case, the death they feared was his.

The stunts, many of them presented on ABC’s “Wide World of Sports,” made him famous — spawning films, appearances on late-night talk shows and merchandise for his growing fan base. This success foreshadowed the multibillion-dollar extreme-sports industry.
