Thanks to reader-researcher RC for the article.

Unfortunately, I can’t post photographs at the moment, so you’ll have to hit the links to see the pics.

Those arrested so far are:

Christopher Cruz
Reggie Chance
Robert Sims
Clint Caldwell
Undercover narcotics detective Wojciech Braszczok
Craig Wright
James Kuehne
Caliq Douglas
Jason Brown

Earlier reports had said that the gang was dominated by off-duty NYPD cops and correctional officers, and yesterday ABC News reporter Darla Miles said “Nine bikers, including some police officers, have been arrested,” but she only identified undercover narcotics Detective Wojciech Braszczok.

And as ABC News readers pointed out, the bikers were not coming from “a rally,” but rather had spent the morning terrorizing drivers and pedestrians alike, who had made over 200 911 calls to the NYPD, which appears to have ignored them.

Law enforcement and the media are scrambling to get their lies straight.

I’m putting Darla Miles’ story first because it has more specifics about the alleged attackers, and because the Daily Mail piece is a blog based on hers, but without several suspects’ names, and is a rehash of the original incident.



Motorcycle road rage: New video emerges - Eyewitness News Exclusive

NEW YORK (WABC) -- Eyewitness News has obtained new video of the assault on an SUV driver by a group of motorcycle riders last month.

The video, obtained by Eyewitness News reporter Darla Miles, comes from a witness to the incident. Police have seen the video, which we warn you is violent and graphic.

The incident happened on Sept. 29 after as a group of motorcycles rode up the Henry Hudson Parkway following a rally. [What “rally”? Riding around on public streets and sidewalks, terrorizing people, does not a rally make!]

Alexian Lien was the driver of an SUV that bumped a bike that had slowed in front of it driven by [Hispanic] Christopher Cruz, 28. Motorcyclists surrounded and converged on the Range Rover. Lien hit the gas, fleeing in fear for the loved ones riding with him, and ran over a biker who was left paralyzed.

Motorcyclists chased Lien's SUV, pulled him from the vehicle and attacked him, police and prosecutors say. The encounters were partly caught on a helmet-camera video posted online.

Nine bikers, including some police officers, have been arrested. Alexian Lien hasn't been charged with any crime. He is recovering from injuries suffered during the assault.

"What is wrong with you man?" That is the phrase laced with explicatives [sic] heard by the bikers who pulled Alexian Lien out of his black Range Rover.

A ninth biker was arraigned Tuesday night, [black] 40-year-old Jason Brown. Sources identified him in the video dressed in all black. He is accused of hitting Lien so hard with his helmet, the visor breaks off of it.

The assault lasted only 20 seconds. It shows Lien being violently stomped and ends with him lying face down on the ground.
In the first clip obtained exclusively by Eyewitness News, you see a biker hitting the driver's side door with a helmet.
Reggie Chance was arrested for that action.

Next, you see another [black] biker in a vest, who police believe is Robert Sims.

A third [black] biker in a blue shirt approaches the SUV and investigators believe that is Clint Caldwell.

At the end of the clip, you can see the rear window of the range rover smashed, property damage allegedly caused by [white] undercover narcotics detective Wojciech Braszczok.

In the next clip of the actual attack, you can hear the shattering of the driver's side window.

Police believe the [black] biker with the number 13 on his back seen kicking Lien is Craig Wright.

The biker to the right of the screen in the video holding his helmet with both hands striking Lien is believed to be James Kuehne. [I’m guessing Kuehne is white.]

Lastly, the [black] man with the black and silver jacket is believed to be Kaliq Douglas, who was arrested on Friday.

As Lien lay on the ground helpless, you can see his wife, Rosalyn Ng, jump to the front seat of the SUV.

A new graphic video has been made public showing the brutal September biker attack on a motorist in New York City.

The grainy 51-second footage was obtained by ABC Eyewitness News. According to the station, police have seen the clip and used it to identify the nine motorcyclists accused of assaulting driver Alexian Lien.

The shaky footage shot September 29 on the Henry Hudson Parkway begins with a large group of bikers surrounding Lien's black Range Rover.

New evidence: The grainy 51-second footage of the September 29 biker attack was obtained by ABC Eyewitness News

Marks of violence: The Range Rover's rear right tire is flat, and there is a [sic] in the rear windshield

Ganging up: The shaky video shows a group of bikers converging on the driver of the SUV and dragging him out of the vehicle

The vehicle seen in the video exhibits clear signs of violence: its rear right tire is flat, and there is a gaping hole in the rear windshield.

Just seconds later, several motorcyclists could be seen approaching the driver's side of the vehicle and pulling Lien out of the car.

The graphic footage then depicts men in helmets surrounding Lien lying on the ground and proceeding to kick and stomp him.

In the next frame, the young married father could be seen lying motionless with his face down.

The 33-year-odl man needed stitches after the beat-down that took place after he ran over biker Edwin Mieses in his SUV while trying to escape from the scrum of motorcyclists. The biker was left with spinal injuries and may be paralyzed.

Investigators reportedly used this 51-second video to identify the alleged assailants, among them several police officers, and arrest them.

A ninth biker, 40-year-old Jason Brown, was taken into custody Monday night in Brooklyn in connection with the Lien assault.
He is charged with gang assault, assault and criminal mischief.

Meanwhile, an undercover police detective arrested in a motorcyclist-SUV melee no longer plans to testify before a grand jury, his lawyer said Monday.

Aftermath: The young married father is seen here lying motionless with his face down after the beating

Badly injured: Lien needed stitches after he was attacked by bikers in New York. He hit some bikers in a bid to escape them but they caught up and beat him

Attorney John Arlia initially indicated that Detective Wojciech Braszczok wanted to speak to the Manhattan grand jury that's considering indicting him. But Arlia said Monday he's advised Braszczok not to do so "because the evidence speaks for him."

"My client has complete confidence and faith this grand jury will determine that he in no way intended to injure, nor act in any way to injure" an SUV driver who was beaten by several other bikers, the attorney said. Video and other evidence will show Braszczok didn't come close to contact with the driver, Arlia said.

The Manhattan district attorney's office has said Braszczok nonetheless actively participated in the attack by shattering the SUV's back window and kicking its passenger side, and he has been charged with gang assault. The DA's office declined to comment Monday on his decision not to testify.

Many defendants ultimately choose not to testify before grand juries, for various reasons. It's not uncommon for defendants to give notice that they want to appear and then change their minds.

“NYPD undercover cop” “gone rogue” spotted in biker attack video

Suspect: Biker Kaliq Douglas, 28, of Brooklyn, was arrested last week in connection with the road rage attack

Claims: Clint Caldwell, 32, alleges that Alexian Lien, 33, ignited the violence by throwing a water bottle at the cyclists during the incident on the West Side Highway last month

Braszczok was off-duty when he participated in a Sept. 29 motorcycle rally that took a violent turn. He's one of several riders who have since been arrested.’

After the SUV driver bumped a bike that had slowed in front of it, motorcyclists surrounded and converged on the Range Rover SUV; its driver fled in fear for the loved ones riding with him and ran over a biker, and motorcyclists chased him, pulled him from the vehicle and attacked him, police and prosecutors say.

The encounters were partly caught on a helmet-camera video posted online.

The SUV driver, Alexian Lien, hasn't been charged with any crime.

Braszczok did nothing to stop the assault or summon help, didn't report having been there to his superiors for a few days, and wasn't straightforward when he did, prosecutors said.

The detective was stripped of his gun and badge after internal affairs investigators discovered he saw at least part of the confrontation. He initially told authorities and his union that he didn't intervene in the attack partly because he works undercover.

Arlia has said that the window Braszczok is accused of breaking already had a sizeable hole in it. The detective didn't know other participants in the rally, which was organized online, and he pursued Lien only to prevent his flight after the SUV ran down and seriously injured motorcyclist Edwin Mieses Jr., Arlia said.

"The facts cannot be changed to lump him into an attack he was not a part of. We owe him and his family at least that much," Arlia said by phone Monday.

Terror: Lien was dragged from his car and beaten by bikers on September 29 in front of his wife and two-year-old daughter on a New York highway

Braszczok has been a police officer for a decade. It's unclear when the grand jury might vote on whether to indict him.

Kaliq Douglas, 28, of Brooklyn was charged last week with gang assault and assault with intent to cause serious injury for his involvement,

Bikers Reginald Chance, Clint Caldwell and Craig Wright made court appearances last week on October 11.

Right, the "rally", and this needs to be told over and over, consists of the rear guard of a group of bikers shutting down the highway by stopping traffic or slowing it down to an extent that is illegal on the part of the bikers. Clear the road ahead of the main group so that the villains can do "wheelies". Concerted criminal action on the part of all.

Tire WAS slashed. The bikers had produced knives and were slashing the tires of the SUV. By law, producing a knife means an intent to kill. Whether the villains had realized it or not, they had sent a message to the driver of the SUV, we intend to kill you.

We'll probably never know the full truth. In spite of that, I'd really like to know more about the inner machinations of a police department that protects these hoods like these. The fact that hundreds of 911 calls were made in one day about the crimes of these animals, and that none got responses, is worth serious consideration. What were the 911 operators told to say and do, and who gave them their orders?

Evidently the goal of the bikers was to shut down Times Square and the cops were aware of that and had taken precautions. So the bikers rode off to another area to cause mayhem.

Remember this one? Somewhat relevant today. The perps eventually plea bargained and were convicted to short prison terms.

Thanks David. That's fantastic! I'd forgotten all about it.
