Death at 'American Chopper' Son's Bike Shop

6/15/2010 12:24 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

A man died this morning after falling through the roof at a New York motorcycle shop owned by "American Chopper" star Paul Teutul Jr. ... law enforcement sources tell TMZ.

American Chopper

We're told the man -- a construction worker not employed by Paul Jr. Designs -- was working on the roof when the accident occurred.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office confirmed that cops are still on scene. We're told someone at the shop called 911 around 8:30 AM to report that someone "fell through the roof."

We're told none of the regular shop employees were inside the building at the time.

OCSD is for Orange County Sheriff Dept. . Orange County is about 40 miles North West of New York City. It is a county where there are still bobcat, blackbears, wildturkey (feathered kind as well as 101 proof) and even fischer cats.

I can't believe some of the comments i am reading. It was an accident and being a union comapny or not, an accident can happen just the same. OR DOES THE UNION HIDE THES TYPES OF ACCIDENT!!!!

agreed with tmz gossip. check senior's alibi. this is big business. senior' has a lot of money (his whole life) at risk right now. i just watched the most recent episode. i have to think that senior is "well connected" or else he wouldn't be where he's at right now because he really doesn't seem like that good of a business man. i would venture to guess that he might have something to do with the electricity not being installed on time, too. senior's alibi was that he was in canada. seems like weird timing. the shop morale is down because their building some lame bike and they could use his help. So he decides to take off to Canada. My last conspiracy theory. I think Sr. was all juiced on steroids and that is the main cause of his short temper and violent outbursts. But, now, with all this court going on he has to keep clean. Unless he has AIDS, I can't figure out how he thinned down so quick. Anywayz

Union or non-union makes no difference. Same safety precautions used most of the time. This guy died, have some respect.
