Man if anything the guy in the car should sue. Can you imagine having your child in there while some bike thug smashes glass all over you in public???
I would be the nation's next millionaire I tell you what. I don't even understand the point people in here are trying to make. If he ran over someone, his fault. But do NOT take justice into your own hands and then use race to try and make harassment justifiable. Just do not.
Nobody was killed. One of the bikers got a broken leg.
A motorist with his wife and baby daughter in his SUV was terrorized,
chased down and assaulted by a gang of several dozen motorcyclists in a
harrowing incident that began on the West Side Highway Sunday, police
The bikers were speeding and driving erratically in the northbound
lanes when Alexian Lien, 33, called 911 to report them about 1:30 p.m.
The bikers then surrounded the Lien’s dark-colored Range Rover while
it was heading north near 125th Street in Harlem, according to video
captured by a camera apparently attached to a biker’s helmet.
One biker then pulled directly in front and slowed down, forcing the
SUV to stop, and the others converged on the Range Rover, laying their
bikes down on the pavement to block the vehicle.
The panicked dad then gunned the engine and ran over several bikes
before speeding off with the pack in hot pursuit, police sources said
“He feared for his life and the lives of his wife and daughter,” a police source said.
The harrowing chase continued more than 50 blocks north, according to
the 6-plus minute video, which quickly went viral on YouTube and
elsewhere Monday morning.
At one point, the bikers blocked Lien again as he got caught behind another vehicle, with one biker yanking open his door.
But Lien guns it again and manages to get away after knocking another bike to the ground.
During one of the stops, one of the bikers slashed one or more tires
on the SUV, forcing Lien to exit at West 178th Street in Washington
But the pack swarmed behind him, blowing through at least one red light at high speed.
Finally, traffic forces the SUV to stop on West 178th between Wadsworth and St. Nicholas avenues.
One rider then rips off his helmet and uses it to bash in the driver’s side window as the video ends.
The crew then beat Lien in front of his wife and child, police sources said.
Lien was rushed to Columbia Presbyterian Hospital with two black eyes, and also needed stitches on his face and chest.
No arrests have been made and police are investigating the assault,
including checking video from a nearby gas station where the bikers
gathered after the assault.
At least one of the riders’ jacket patches indicate he’s a member of a New Rochelle motorcycle club.
Sources said it was not an organized charity ride, but a rally
loosely organized on the blog HollywoodStuntz, which features videos of
bikers doing tricks and stunts.
