NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — A motorcyclist who prosecutors said triggered a chain of events that led to an intense confrontation between the driver of a sport-utility vehicle and a group of other bikers appeared in court on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, bikers gathered Wednesday night to rally support for one of their own who was run over by the SUV.
Bail was set at $1,500 cash for Christopher Cruz, 28, at his arraignment, which he later posted. His license was also suspended and the judge ordered him to turn over his passport.
Cruz told the court he lost his passport saying, “My girlfriend had it, I’m not too sure where it went.”
Cruz was charged with reckless endangerment, reckless driving, endangering the welfare of a child and menacing. He was also charged with unlawful imprisonment.
