An Oklahoma man is being held on suspicion of murdering his stepfather by giving him an "atomic wedgie," officials said.
Police said Brad Lee Davis got into a drunken family fight with his stepfather in which he grabbed the man’s underwear, pulled it over his head, and suffocated him with the waistband.
Davis’ stepfather, 58-year-old Denver Lee St. Clair, was found dead at his home in McLoud, Okla., on Dec. 21. Davis was arrested on Tuesday, Shelly Dixon, first deputy clerk at Pottawatomie County Court, told NBC News.
The affidavit said the defendant "grabbed St. Clair's underwear and gave him an 'atomic wedgie.'" It adds that "Davis allegedly pulled the elastic waistband of St. Clair's underwear over his head and around his neck."
Police allege that the men got into a fight while drinking together when St. Clair made offensive remarks about his wife, who is Davis' mother.
St. Clair was killed by blunt force trauma to the head and asphyxiation, according to the state medical examiner.
Davis appeared in court Wednesday and is being held without bond in Pottawatomie County. He will appear again Jan. 22.
