Christopher Cruz, 28, was charged with reckless endangerment, reckless menacing and endangering the welfare of a child.
A second man turned himself in Tuesday afternoon. Police say that man allegedly smashed in the windshield of the Range Rover.
Police also released a photo of two more bikers they’re looking for.
The men are accused of taking off their helmets and smashing the SUV, before pulling the driver out and attacking him.
Dayana Mieses is now by her husband’s side in a New York hospital and she is furious with Lien.
“This man needs to know he hurt someone,” said Mieses. “That man paralyzed my husband. He needs to pay for what he did.”
Mieses says her husband has injuries to his heart, lungs and ribs and that he is paralyzed from the waist down.
The couple has two children, ages 15 and 9.
Mieses works in studio engineering in the music business. Friends call him Jay Meezee. They’ve created a Facebook page for him.
“This is devastating,” Yolanda Santiago, Edwin’s mother, told WBZ-TV Tuesday. “All his ribs are fractured, his lungs are so badly bruised that he’s still on a ventilator.”
Santiago says if the SUV driver had just stopped, things likely would not have gotten out of hand. She doesn’t understand why that driver has not been charged.
“It’s not going to bring my son’s legs back because he won’t walk again,” said Santiago. “But justice has to be served with this gentleman who did this to my son.”
The YouTube video had more than one million views as of Tuesday morning.
