Arrest Made In NYC Road Rage Incident Involving SUV, Motorcyclists
NEW YORK (CBS/AP) — The New York Police Department has arrested another man in connection with the videotaped beating of a New York City SUV driver by a gang of bikers.
The NYPD reported Reginald Chance was charged with first-degree gang assault, first-degree assault and criminal mischief.
Chance, 37, was in custody Saturday and unable to comment. There is no phone number listed for Chance at the address provided by police.
Investigators have said the bikers stopped the SUV on a highway, attacked the vehicle and pulled the driver from the car after he plowed over a motorcyclist from Massachusetts while trying to escape. The Bay State motorcyclist, Edwin Mieses of Lawrence, was reportedly hurt after he got off his bike to help a motorcyclist injured in the first moments of the incident.
Police have arrested four people in connection with the attack, though the case against one of those motorcyclists was subsequently dismissed when prosecutors said they needed more time to investigate.
