Weeks after video of a road rage attack in Manhattan by a bunch of bikers on the driver of an SUV went viral, a second undercover police officer has come forward.
Motorcyclists have been venting all over the Web about high-profile cases they said are giving them a bad name.
Alexian Lien, the sport-utility vehicle driver who was attacked and beaten in a clash with bikers last month, was seen before cameras for the first time since the attack in recent days.
Among others facing possible indictment is undercover NYPD detective Wojciech Braszczok, who is accused of being a key player in the attack.
A seventh biker has been arraigned on charges stemming from the Sept. 29 incident that began on the West Side Highway.
Wojciech Braszczok was arraigned on assault, gang assault and criminal mischief charges.
His lawyer had said Monday that the detective only witnessed other bikers attacking the vehicle.
The NYPD released photos of the two persons of interest who they said were part of the large group of bikers. Police said the two are wanted for questioning.
New charges were issued overnight in the infamous motorcycle road rage incident on the Henry Hudson Parkway and in Washington Heights.
Police have identified the suspect who authorities said is seen on a YouTube video violently smashing the window of a SUV after an intense confrontation between the driver and a group of bikers on Sunday.
The family of Range Rover driver Alexian Lien issued a statement Thursday via their attorney.
A motorcycle rider seriously injured when an SUV ran him over after a New York City highway altercation was recently arrested in Massachusetts for driving with a revoked license.
State Sen. Adriano Espaillat and others gathered Thursday in Washington Heights where they unveiled what they said was new video of Sunday’s biker rally.
Police are continuing to piece together the chain of events that led to the confrontation, which was all caught on a camera mounted on the helmet of a fellow biker and posted to YouTube.
