Investigators: 'Atomic wedgie' kills man

MCCLOUD, Okla. —

It's a move school bullies have used for decades on their unfortunate victims. Now, investigators in Oklahoma say a man murdered his stepfather after giving him an 'atomic wedgie' during a fight.

Police in McCloud, Oklahoma say the suspect, Brad Davis, and his stepfather, Denver Lee St. Clair, began arguing after St. Clair made disparaging remarks about Davis' mother.

The arguing eventually led to a fight in which Davis allegedly gave St. Clair the deadly "wedgie."

Fox23 in Tulsa reports Davis explained to police that he pulled St. Clair's underwear up over his head.

The medical examiner believes that St. Clair died from asphyxiation due to the "wedgie" and from blunt-force trauma to the head.

According to the, an "atomic wedgie" is a term to describe when a person is wearing "underwear and someone pulls up on the waistband and tries to pull it over the receiver's head."

Davis told police the physical struggled after St. Clair hit him with a TV tray and Davis responded back by punching St. Clair.

Davis' mother and brother told police that St. Clair had a history of violence and was aggressive when he'd been drinking.

They also said St. Claire believed Davis had burned down his shop last year. Davis said that was part of what led to the fight. 

Davis is now charged with murder in the death.
