O.C. Choppers - Dad Sues Gearhead Son

12/24/2009 11:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The father/son team that star on the hit TV show, "American Chopper", are locked in a bitter lawsuit ... ironically, these gritty, grease-covered motorcycle badboys are suing over stock options -- and daddy wants more than a mil from his son.



Paul Teutul
, Sr. is suing Paul M. Teutul, claiming they had a deal in which daddy could purchase sonny boy's stock in the Orange County Choppers Holdings, Inc. -- the motorcycle company.

Daddy sent a letter to his kid saying he was exercising the option to buy the kid's stock. But according to the lawsuit, filed in the Supreme Court of New York, the kid won't give it up.

Daddy is also suing Orange County Choppers, Inc. -- awkward.

Teutul, Sr. is suing Jr. for damages in excess of $1 million, and wants an order from the judge forcing the kid to ante up his stock to daddy.

Junior is a punk and he singlehandedly nearly brought the company to BK and if I was Senior I'd sue him to change his name, as he thinks he's all that, yet still markets himself as "Jr" What an idiot.

Don't get me started on the other son. I don't wanna be the next person in trouble for calling someone re&&&&ed. Who knows what his excuse is. How he got this old alone is a mystery in itself. Nice guy but about as useless as a match in a tsunami.

You guys are crazy. Suing each other. My God how much money do you need Dad. How much money would it take, how much cash, to see your son laid out in his cofin. Gone forever, I bet you would give up it all.No money in the world would be enough. Why fight. You can't take it with you. Son in rehab, son starting over...where are you
For Gods sake..wakeup paul senior

I have watched this show from the begining. In many episodes Sr. has said that Jr. and he were partners in the compnay since all of the design came from Jr. Now that being said I wonder if the agreement Jr signed prevents him from degining bikes? With Vinnie and Cody out doing their own thing I was surprised that Jr didn't go over to them and that TLC would run a show about that. I would look for OCC to go bankrupt in the near future. Thats a huge building and a large staff to try and keep up on the crappy bikes they make. Also it should be known that from I have read Sr has no relationship with any of his kids. He has gone out of his way to piss them off to the point they don't ever want to talk to him again. Sr is also not very well liked in the town he lives in. Most think he is arrogant.. well If it were me and my old man we would have just went out back and beat each other up until the whole thing was settled..

This company is going down. Choppers are soo 15 yrs ago. Now it's off TV. If I was the kid, I'd gladly take the million. Sr is suing his own company. How much longer will this business survive?This is not going to attract customers.

Go Senior, Junior is a boring, spoiled rotton and all mouth.
Who would know nothing if it wasn't for your Will power to build a business. He loves to talk and be a big shot.
