According to the Daily Oklahoman, a man has died from underwear suffocation otherwise known as the "atomic wedgie."

The newspaper article describes the situation.  A man by the name of Brad Davis suffocated the man with his own underwear and struck him in the head.  The 33-year-old man was put in jail on Tuesday night after he was arrested on homicide charges. 

Davis told investigators that he gave his stepfather, Denver Lee St. Clair, 58, an "atomic wedgie" on Dec. 21.  The two men had been fighting after a night of drinking, the older gentleman allegedly insulted the mother of Davis.

The state medical examiners office spokeswoman, Amy Elliott, says that the cause of death has been determined to be blunt force trauma to the head and asphyxiation.  The medical examiner also believes that the death was as result of "...asphyxiation caused by the elastic underwear band being stretched over his head and left around his neck."  This would allow the death to be ruled as a homicide.

TV reports indicate that the Davis altered the crime scene after he called 911 to make it look like the crime was committed in self defense.

Brad Davis has been booked in to the Pottawatomie County jail on a homicide complaint.  He had no comment as he was being escorted into jail.
