    "There's no hope for his back," Dayana Mieses told reporters. "They crushed his spine. They broke it in two different places, so he will be forever, forever paralyzed."
    I sympathize with anyone who has become paralyzed. I hope, though, that other bikers learn that you don't park in front of a panicked driver while your buddies pound on his windows and make him fear for the life of his family.

    The Mieses family hired celebrity attorney Gloria Allred to represent him in a potential case against Alexian Lien, the driver who hit him.
    Gloria Allred????

    Allen Edwards, 42, of Queens believed to be the man seen on video striking the Range Rover's rear driver's side window with his fists, surrendered to police on Tuesday. But the Manhattan DA declined to prosecute, "pending further investigation of the entire incident," the office said Wednesday.

    Sources said he has been cooperative and there is no indication he participated in the assault of Lien. He may have even tried to come to the victim's aid, sources said.
    "Here, I'll help you! Let me bash in the window where your child is sitting!"

    The other arrested biker, Christopher Cruz, of Passaic, N.J., was charged with second-degree unlawful imprisonment and reckless driving. Cruz, who was uninjured, was arraigned Wednesday. Prosecutors say he deliberately slowed down in front of the Range Rover on the West Side Highway, trapping him there, but Cruz's lawyer said that was not true.
    "Oh, wait, there was a video showing that that happened?" the lawyer said later.

    Seriously? Fuck this shit. Blow your cover and take up a new job, shit Undercover NYPD Cop Watched SUV Driver Get Beaten - Yahoo

    An off-duty undercover New York City police officer was among the crowd of motorcyclists on the scene as SUV driver Alexian Lien was beaten on Sunday, officials confirmed to ABC News today.
    The undercover narcotics cop did not intervene in the beating out of fear that his cover would be blown, sources said.

    The cop's identity has not been released by the NYPD. According to officials, the officer notified his superiors days after the incident. He was a motorcyclist who was there on his own time, they said.
    The information is part of the ongoing investigation by the NYPD and the Manhattan district attorney into the confrontation and beating that happened Sunday afternoon between a group of 20 to 30 motorcyclists and Lien, caught on video and uploaded to the Internet.

    The officer's involvement is also the subject of an Internal Affairs investigation, sources said.
    Lien was driving his SUV on the West Side Highway in Manhattan with his wife and 2-year-old as part of a wedding anniversary celebration around 2 p.m. Sunday when their SUV was surrounded by the motorcyclists, who were doing an annual ride through the city, police and Lien's wife said.

    The bikers tried to slow traffic and one biker cut Lien off, slowing down and leading Lien to bump into the biker, police said. The group of motorcyclists then slowed down further and surrounded the SUV, causing Lien to accelerate away from the group. Lien's wife, Rosalyn Ng, said that her husband feared for their lives when he decided to take off to get away from the group. As he sped off, Lien hit some of the motorcyclists, critically injuring one, authorities said.
    Other motorcyclists then chased Lien's SUV and then bashed in his windows, pulled him out of the car, and beat him, police said.

    The undercover police officer was at the scene where Lien was beaten, officials said.

    The prime suspect of the beating is still at large, though he could surrender to cops as early as this evening, officials said.

    A source briefed on the case told ABC News that in the days since the attack "new evidence has been coming in and it will give prosecutors much better evidence for charging the attackers."
    The new evidence includes additional video footage and stills compiled from a variety of cameras that were situated around the scenes of the chase and melee, the source said.

    I heard that, too. That is going to put a major crimp in their careers - knowing that any one of these cops could have de-escalated the situation, but didn't. The undercover cop supposedly was saying that he didn't want to blow his cover. A CNN analyst who is a former police chief said that NYPD must be majorly pissed at him to blow his cover and say he was an undercover cop. Basically, that he was undercover and may be part of an ongoing investigation, and by identifying him that they would blow the investigation, too.

    He didn't have to blow his cover. He could have simply stepped in to stop it - like a caring human.

    Yeah, I think it's just a lame, after-the-face excuse on his part. Especially given the behavior of this group of bikers that was captured prior to this incident. He was either participating in, or watching without intervening, these guys commit numerous traffic violations - like certain riders driving into oncoming traffic, without doing anything.

    Well it is quite possible that he was actually working undercover to find something on someone within that group. But I doubt it. I believe these 5 cops were part of the group by choice.

    New York media is reporting the one officer was indeed undercover, he's a narcotics cop.

    Two off-duty New York police officers were riding with the biker group whose members allegedly assaulted an SUV driver in New York City, and the NYPD is investigating why the cops apparently did not intervene, authorities said.
    Among those off duty officers was an undercover narcotics cop who came forward to his superiors days after the incident, according to officials. He did not get involved in the beating out of fear that his cover would be blown, sources said.


    The cop's identity has not been released by the NYPD. The officer's involvement was also the subject of an Internal Affairs investigation, sources said.
    Another other off-duty officer riding with the group was also believed to have been nearby when the incident occurred, sources said.

    Investigators are also looking into reports that there were three other off-duty cops who may have been near the sport bike ride that ended with the alleged attack on Range Rover driver Alexian Lien, but were not close enough to see the incident, officials told ABC News.


    Lien was driving his SUV on the West Side Highway in Manhattan with his wife and 2-year-old as part of a wedding anniversary celebration around 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29, when their SUV was surrounded by the motorcyclists, who were doing an annual ride through the city, police and Lien's wife said.
    The bikers tried to slow traffic and one biker cut Lien off, slowing down and leading Lien to bump into the biker, police said. The group of motorcyclists then slowed down further and surrounded the SUV, and in response Lien accelerated away from the group.


    Lien's wife, Rosalyn Ng, said her husband feared for their lives when he decided to take off to get away from the group. As he sped off, Lien hit some of the motorcyclists, critically injuring one, authorities said.
    Other motorcyclists chased Lien's SUV and then bashed in his windows, pulled him out of the car, and beat him, police said.
    Two men seen on video committing the most violent actions at the scene are in custody.



    Robert Sims, 35, who allegedly grabbed the SUV's door about five minutes into the video, turned himself in to police Friday in Brooklyn, NYPD officials said.
    He faces charges of gang assault, assault and criminal possession of a weapon, police said this morning.
    Sims was arrested in 1998 for possession of a loaded firearm and a samurai sword, and he served eight months in jail, police said.
    Reginald Chance, 38, of Brooklyn, also surrendered to police late Friday. He allegedly was the man seen on video using his helmet to smash the driver's side window of the Range Rover before the video cut off and the alleged assault took place.


    Chance's possible role in the alleged assault beyond the window smashing was not immediately clear.

    He was arraigned today in Manhattan Criminal Court on charges of gang assault, assault in the first degree, criminal possession of a weapon, menacing, and criminal mischief.


    His bail was set at $100,000 bond or $75,000 cash, and he was due to return to court Oct. 11.
    Chance and his attorney conceded the criminal mischief charge, admitting that Chance smashed in the window of the SUV, but said they will fight all the other charges.


    Chance's attorney, Gregory Watts, said Chance was not a participant in any gang assault and that his client was a victim. He asked for a separate grand jury to investigate whether Lien committed a crime by driving into other cyclists, including his client.


    Meanwhile, Sergio Consuegra, who is seen in NYPD fliers with his arms stretched out protecting Lien from the bikers, was honored in Washington Heights today for his bravery.


    Consuegra told ABC station WABC-TV in New York that he intervened in the beating when he saw a biker grabbing Ng through the car window, telling her, "You're going to get it too."
    Newly released photos show the SUV's passenger side window where Ng was sitting was smashed in, as well as the driver's side window.
    "At that moment, I said I have to do something," Consuegra said. "There's a family in danger here and they're going to get killed. Nobody intervened in this situation and nobody's stepping in."
    Consuegra said the biker left Ng aloneafter the crowd began screaming for help. Then, he said he saw a badly bloodied Lien on the ground, getting bashed in the head with a helmet.


    "I went up there, right away to them, and I stood in the middle," he said. "I went, 'No. No, that's it. Let it go guys. You did what you did.'
    "Then somehow, one of them moved, started moving and I said, 'Yeah, this is enough now,'" he said.
    ABC News' Alexis Shaw contributed to this report.

    Default Off-duty NYPD officer allegedly seen pounding SUV arrested on riot charge

    New York (CNN) -- New York police have arrested one of their own on riot and criminal mischief charges in connection with the September 29 attack on an SUV driver in New York City, a law enforcement official said Tuesday.

    Wojciech Braszczok, a 32-year-old detective in the New York Police Department who was off-duty at the time, is allegedly shown on a video pounding on the Range Rover as it drove amid a sea of motorcyclists on the city's West Side Highway, according to the official. That video is now in investigators' hands.

    It is is not clear if the detective participated in the beating of the vehicle's driver that followed.

    Both charges Braszczok faces are felonies, according to the law enforcement official.

    Braszczok was one of at least two off-duty undercover officers who were riding with fellow bikers that day, a law enforcement official told CNN.


    He was riding with his motorcycle club when the incident occurred and saw much of the confrontation, a law enforcement source told CNN last week. The undercover officer allegedly didn't inform supervisors about the incident until three days later, telling internal affairs investigators that he waited because he reportedly was afraid his cover would be blown.

    Braszczok is expected to be arraigned Wednesday along with Clint Caldwell, who is a civilian, said Manhattan district attorney's office spokesman Erin Duggan.

    Caldwell, a 32-year-old biker from Brooklyn, face charges of gang assault, assault and criminal mischief. Police have video allegedly showing him at the scene of the attack, according to New York police Lt. John Grimpel

    Once the prosecutor formally brings charges against these two men, five people in total -- all of them motorcyclists -- will have been charged in the case.

    That figure includes Craig Wright, who was arraigned Tuesday on gang assault and other charges and then ordered held on $150,000 bond.


    Wright is accused of stomping driver Alexian Lien at least twice after police say he and other motorcyclists forced the man's Range Rover to a stop, used their helmets to break out the window and dragged him out of the car, in which his wife and 2-year-old daughter were passengers.

    A witness who tried to help the driver told CNN on Tuesday that bikers also tried to drag Lien's wife from the vehicle.

    According to court documents, police say Wright, 29, identified himself in a picture showing him standing near the stopped SUV. Another photograph shows him stomping Lien as the man lies on the ground, according to the documents.

    Wright is charged with first-degree gang assault, first-degree assault and first-degree unlawful imprisonment. He was arrested at his home in Brooklyn.

    In addition to the bond, New York Trial Court Judge Tamiko Amaker set Wright's next court date for Friday.

    In March, Wright pleaded guilty to driving with a suspended license, a spokesman for the Brooklyn district attorney's office said. It is unclear whether he was driving with a suspended license at the time of the SUV incident.

    He was also convicted in Virginia in 2005 for reckless driving.

    He is the latest person to be charged in the case. Reginald Chance, who was captured on video smashing his helmet into the SUV's window, has been charged with first-degree assault and gang assault. He was ordered held on $75,000 bond Sunday.

    Assistant District Attorney Samantha Turino said Chance's license had been suspended and he should not have been driving. She said his arrest record includes a marijuana charge in 2013 and attempted criminal possession of a weapon in 2006.

    So undercover narcotics detective has now been arrested for his part. Video evidence shows him pounding on the truck during the assault.

    The undercover NYPD detective who said he did not witness a biker struck by an SUV or the road rage incident that followed has been arrested on a felony charge in connection with the attack, the New York Post reported and the NYPD confirmed.
    Detective Wojciech Braszczok, 32, was charged with riot and criminal mischief, the NYPD announced.
    "In the last few days, serious charges have been brought against several defendants in last Sunday's attack," Erin Duggan, a spokesperson for the New York County District Attorney's Office, told Fox 5 News. "As we said from the beginning of the investigation, the NYPD and the District Attorney's Office are methodically scrutinizing the evidence to build the strongest possible cases in our continuing effort to hold accountable those responsible."
    Braszczok joined the pack of riders following the black Range Rover up Manhattan's West Side Highway after it struck motorcyclist Edwin Meises Jr. because he thought there had been a hit-and-run, said attorney Phil Karasyk with the Detectives' Endowment Association on Monday. He said he later saw the bikers attacking the SUV but didn't see the motorist pulled from the vehicle and beaten, Karasyk said.
    But video reportedly shows the detective pounding the vehicle with his fist and smashing the glass, the New York Post reported, citing sources.
    Video captured parts of the encounter, including the moment when about two dozen riders slowed down, swarming the SUV after the driver and a biker bumped. Some dismounted and approached the vehicle, and police said some bikers began damaging the Range Rover.
    The driver, Alexian Lien, in the car with his wife and 2-year-old child, took off, striking Mieses before heading north. His wife said they had no other choice but to flee.
    Mieses suffered two broken legs and spinal injuries that may leave him paralyzed.
    The bikers pursued the driver until the SUV got off the highway and got stuck in street traffic. The video showed one biker smashing the driver's window with his helmet. Police said the group then pulled Lien from the SUV and beat him, although that part isn't shown on the video. He required stitches.
    On Monday, police nabbed another biker in connection with the brawl. Craig Wright, 29, of Brooklyn, was arrested on charges of gang assault, assault and unlawful imprisonment, police said. It wasn't clear if he had a lawyer. A telephone call to his home was not answered.
    Three other bikers have been charged so far, and police continue to investigate. Lien has not been charged.
    The detective was off-duty when he joined the Sept. 29 rally, Karasyk said. While off-duty officers are expected to act if they see a crime, undercover officers do so only in rare circumstances.
    Karasyk said the detective, who had no gun or badge with him, was conscious of cases where officers blew cover only to be suspended or dismissed for doing so.
    "He had no other option, so he drove away," he said.
    The detective did not report his presence there until three days later. Chief police spokesman John McCarthy said the officer was stripped of his gun and badge while internal affairs investigates the delay.

    Dumbasses. I probably would have done the same thing if I was in the drivers situation. Hell, I'd probably take out as many of those idiots as I could.
