Milwaukee, WI - On Wednesday, United States Attorney James L. Santelle, announced that a grand jury sitting in the Eastern District of Wisconsin returned a second superseding indictment, charging Randy M. Yager, 59, aka, "Mad or Mad Dog," originally from Crown Point, Indiana, a former Lieutenant in the leadership of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club with Racketeering and Racketeering Conspiracy, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1962(c) and (d).
According to the federal indictment, Yager in the 1990's participated in acts of murder and arson. The eight underlying racketeering acts charge offenses that include three homicides and the use of explosives, all directed at members of rival motorcycle gangs as part of the Outlaws' efforts to exert and maintain territorial control.
Yager was originally charged with sixteen co-defendants in an indictment that was unsealed on June 10, 1997. At that time, Yager became a fugitive. He remained a fugitive, and one of the  United States Marshal's "most wanted,"  until October 2014 when he was arrested in Baja California, Mexico, where he was living under an assumed name. The cases of Yager's co-defendants have long been resolved.  If convicted, Yager faces up to life in prison.
The case was investigated by a federal task force headed by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorneys Carol L. Kraft, Scott J. Campbell and Laura S. Kwaterski, according to Santelle press release.
