Convicted murderer sues RB Custom Choppers
A convicted murderer is suing a custom motorcycle shop owner after being charged storage fees.
Chad Davis filed suit in Harris County District Court on Nov. 2, stating that Roman Blum, the owner of RB Custom Choppers who was involved with reality show American Biker Series, engaged in deceptive trade practices and fraud when he returned Davis' unfinished chopper with a $25,000 fee for storage.
In the suit, Davis alleges he suffered financial damages, as well as severe mental anguish, as a result of Blum's unscrupulous business practices. According to the suit, Davis purchased a chopper for $65,000. He hired Blum to paint and assemble the bike. After the arrest, Blum kept the bike until Davis made repeated demands for its return. Upon return, the bike was unassembled, with parts missing.
It was the responsibility of Blum, he says, to honor their agreement.
Davis is representing himself. He is seeking actual and punitive damages, court costs and attorney's fees. He is currently incarcerated at the Texas Department of Criminal Justice's Mark W. Michael Unit in Anderson County
