Bikers Brutally Assault Driver after minor wreck In New York during charity ride

assault2Police have made one arrest and say more arrests are forthcoming in a deadly assault in upper Manhattan this past Sunday, September the 29, 2013. In the video posted to YouTube, dozens of motorcyclists surrounded a black Range Rover and beat and cut the driver in front of his wife and 2 year old child.  Christopher Cruz, 28, was charged with reckless endangerment, reckless menacing and endangering the welfare of a child.

The SUV driver, 33-year-old Alexian Lien, was with his wife and their 2-year-old child, according to the Daily News. The newspaper says Lien “became the target of the brutal bikers when he accidentally struck one who cut him off on the Henry Hudson Parkway, triggering a wild 4-mile chase, cops said Monday.

In the video recorded on a biker’s helmet camera and later posted on YouTube, one of the bikers appears to nearly stop in front of the SUV on the highway and the two collided.  Some of the bikers, apparently angry over the collision, started to confront the driver and, at one point, started to slash his tires.

Seconds later you can see the Range Rover run over several motorcycles which were blocking the SUV on the interstate. Edwin “Jay” Meezee was stuck and remains paralyzed as Lien ran over him in his SUV in his  attempt to get away.

The assault from the bikers comes at the end of the video, as one of the bikers remove his helmet and begin smashing the windows, and being joined by another biker before the helmet cam shuts off, or the rest of the video was not uploaded to YouTube.

  1. If anyone threatened the safety of my family, I would have made sure all of them saw the underside of my Expedition. You don't mess with a man's family, stupid little punks and their stupid little bikes!


  2. Without seeing the first "incident" that caused this "Gang" Road Rage, it's hard to say exactly what happened. Were the bikers actually having an organized ride that turned to this? If the Range Rover rear ended a motorcycle, was it improper cycle operation or was it negligence on the driver and his need to escape the situation? As we see, he ran 3 bikes over in the "first" clip of the video, but not the initial collision. Maybe if he would have stayed at the sight of the accident, road rage wouldn't have ensued. Yes, the chase was very dangerous, two and three riding abreast, lane changing, cutting off. That was totally wrong, As a seasoned rider and a Charity Bike Club member, a Charity run is organized and safety is a factor. There are too many grey areas in this video. The initial collision and the actual assault are missing. Only a rowdy group of crotch rockets chasing down an expensive import car. The driver should have stayed at the sight of the accident and called 911. No matter how angry the crowd was, he just made them angrier by leaving the scene. No matter what, Manhattan is no place to have a road rally, crotch rockets or v-twins. I am up in arms about this one.


  3. We may never know what started this whole fray but the words "Range Rover" spells $ & my assumption is the driver decided he could drive wherever and whenever he wanted. It doesn't account for the action of the riders although people do strange things when in large numbers. As far as Harley's and "Crotch Rockets" I saw a minority of both so lets not "bad tag" the wrong groups of riders. Non of this condones street wheelies, filtering, or riding down sidewalks.


  4. NUMBER ONE: These are not BIKERS they are motorcyclists. I am a BIKER, I live and breathe the life style and have for many years. People need to learn the difference.True BIKERS would have never done such a thing!!! These are nothing more than a bunch of idiots on crotch rockets who are trying to be bad asses. catch one alone and I would be willing to bet they would not have been as stupid as to pull a stupid,evil stunt such as this! I hope they catch each and every one of them and wish they would turn them over to a nice bunch of true BIKERS and see how bad assed they are then!!!


  5. somos todos seres humanos no es necesario llegar a estos extremos de violencia para ninguna de estas personas del vídeo tanto como el chófer ni los motociclistas… pero es muy simple el destino quiso q esto terminara de esta manera es xq dios así lo quiso el es el único q sabe como van a empezar y como van a terminar las cosas –


  6. I wouldn't have stopped at the end. I would've pushed the other cars out of the way. These bikers are crazy. I just sold my motorcycle and it's because of people like this good bikers get a bad name. Shame on everyone of these bikers….


  7. Unfortunately I don't own a bike. But I do know several people that do. A lot of them are in clubs or ride for a benefit and all these people are respectable, law abiding, working class people. They would never pull a stunt so dangerous as that asshole who stopped in front of the SUV much less chase him down and beat him inches from his life!! All those riders that chased him were nothing but worthless white trash and I hope the law sends them to prison for this despicable crime!!


  8. I cant say that I saw much in the way of proper riding etiquette on any of the videos. Splitting lanes, riding 2 abreast in the same lane, passing on the right, driving on the median and sidewalks, blowing red lights, popping wheelies etc. I predict that half these punks will be dead or disabled by the time they are thirty.


  9. Makes me want to install a biker plow onto the front of my SUV. These guys sure do ruin it for the good bikers out there on the streets … and to your comment Biker Chick VA … I did see the way the driver ran over a bike. He does have respect for life …. his wife's life and his 2 year old child's lives that were in the car when a punch of punks most likely started assaulting him because he accidently hit a biker who slowed down and cut into his front bumper.


    • If he feared for his life as well as his wife's and infant son I would have ran his ass over too!! In the state of Ohio, if you have reasonable cause to think your life is in danger you can use a vehicle as a weapon!! Good law!!


  10. I can say that I saw one of the crotch riders stop on purpose in front of the SUV – whether that was because the driver of the SUV cut one of them off or not….but speaking from a motorcycle owner and riders point of view……there's no way I'd put myself or any of my friends into a stupid situation like that moron did. I'll also add that if I become surrounded and threatened by 50+ crotch riders……my vehicle's going to win over your motorcycle. If you step in front of my car on a deserted, dark back road at night……I'm not stopping, you'd better move or you'll be my hood ornament. Some of these crotch riders had passengers!!! Right there shows what little disregard they had for anyone else. At least drop your passenger off before you put your stupidity in action.


    • PS- the motorcycling community sides with the SUV driver 100%. These clown kids are exactly that, clowns. Not motorcyclists.


      • why does it matter if there was or wasn't an event. If you don't ride you have no idea how retarded drivers are on the road. I ride every week. I have been run off the road, spit on windshield wiper fluid sprayed on me, get the picture? Oh, it is okay for the driver to run down HUMAN beings because why??? this asshat did something to cause this mess. He started the mayhem in the first place. He needs to be in jail for attempted murder. The bikers who attacked back as well. No one is right here. What a shame


        • Let me take a guess Chris … you have no kids and your young, plus you ride a bike JUST like these guys every week. I bet you the guy driving the SUV will not be charged with a single thing and he shouldn't. Watch all the videos. It is absolutely ridiculous how this group of riders were riding. I'm not sure we are watching the same videos because your mention of the SUV driver "starting it" is way off. You are right about t's not ok for anyone to just run down humans, but if those humans are guilty by association and part of an angry, lawless punch of punks about to do harm to me and my family… I'm running your ass down to get my family to safety. those riders were riding on sidewalks, cutting lanes at high speeds, cutting cars off. I'm surprised more bikes didn't get hit. I'll tell you what the shame is… it's a shame even after seeing the videos that there are people like you that still side with the bike riders. It's stories like this that I wish people would learn from. Ride right, obey the laws of the road, be respectful of others and treat everyone like they are your parents or family in the other cars.


  11. I definitely don't feel like we're getting the whole story here. Keep in mind that the video was edited, leaving out the beginning and the end, the most important parts. Not a single one of us can reach a fair assessment without all the facts/information. Here is what I do know, it is not at all uncommon for vehicles to penetrate and endanger a group of motorcyclists, even those riding within the letter of the law. The SUV driver clearly by the way he ran from the multiple accident scenes and ran over multiple motorcyclist, had no respect for life, theirs or his own and not even his family. I say reserve judgement until we have the whole story.


    • The Biker stopped in front of him on pourpose and you can see that he did it on pourpose. The man Clearly had his wife and BABY in mind when he did what he did. And as a long time BIKER Myself would have done the same thing for I have two children and I would steamroll anyone whom I thought posed a threat to either one of them. Yes some idiots who dont pay attention while driving endanger us on bikes everyday, but this time the motorcyclists where 100% at fault and did what they did to obviously cause trouble. and I say Motorcyclists because they are not BIKERS! They are nothing more than holy terrors on crotchrockets who want to cause others grief and if u seen the other videos they took with thier lil helmet cam, you would see exactly what I mean!!!


  12. The SUV was weaving in and out around the bikes. The first guy who was ran over was giving him a break check to slow him down. Then the SUV ran over more people and bikes then drove off. In the eyes of the law that is hit and run. What is wrong with some of you? I don not agree them busting out the windows in anger after the SUV driver ran/drove off, but clearly the SUV driver was driving very dangerously around the bikes which could also be road rage. Did the SUV driver really think ahead and ask himself if I drive like a maniac with all these bikes around me will the outcome be good?


    • Doesn't appear you actually watched the video, either. The driver stopped after the first asshat break checked him and got tagged. The assh*les mobbed his vehicle and were threatening him. If you were in his position with wife and child in the car, you'd have done whatever it took to get away from the mob. The only mistake he made was not taking the rest of them out and getting off the hi-way and getting stuck in traffic. I'd have made every one of them a grease spot.


  13. Were these guys in the wrong? Hell yes. Did the biker cause all of this? Hell yes. If I had to choose between my family or a group of people threatening their safety… You will lose. Now to Harley Rider, the fact that the majority of the fools in this group are on Sport Bikes is irrelevant. There are a huge number of squids out there who give Sport Bike riders a bad name, but hey aren't all the 1%ers on Harley's? So don't blame the bike, blame the Idiot's and their actions.


  14. This is why I have little to no respect for idiots on crotch rockets. They don't know how to ride on major roads. I almost hit a few some years ago on my way home from work. They decided they wanted to start showing off on an interstate. One of them decided to cut in front of me and I almost hit him because of it. As soon as I got a chance I called 911 to inform them of it. If you're going to ride a bike regardless if it's a Harley (or along that line) or a crotch rocket, obey the rules of the road and don't think you own them, or you might end up as part of it.


  15. The first guy that he hit is paralyzed from the waist down that's not on the video. That is not a "minor" accident. That was apparently what led to the stupid ,chase/stuff that is on video. Personally I probably would have shot him in the head the first time he tried to take off with anyone in front of him after the original accident. He was clearly a threat as soon as he took off again (again prior to video). Would have avoided all the stupidity. When you have an accident you stop that's the law. He is not in china anymore.


    • This is NOTURBIDDNESS. But you seem content to butt into it, so here's my take. You obviously weren't there or you would be in jail for murder right now. Attacking a man in an SUV by slashing his tires is the equivalent of cornering a wild animal. What did you expect him to do? Wait for the threatening mob to pull him out of the car and kill him? I would have done much worse. When stuck in car traffic, I would have worn the shifter out between reverse and first with the steering wheel going all over until ALL of you little assholes were DEAD! 'NUFF SAID.


    • No. The guy he ran over, is the one that stopped him on the interstate. Deliberately cut in front of the Land Rover driver and slowed causing a 'bump' that did not wreck the bike.
      THEN when the biker stopped, the Land Rover stopped. The Land Rover driver fled when threatened by 'many' riders.
      As a motorcycle rider, myself, these bike riders are reckless and present a clear danger to other motorists.


    • The guy that break checked him is an idiot. Who does that on a motorcycle? If you look at the video, it would appear the second guy he hit was the one that was injured. He stopped when the asshat break checked him. He only took off 'cause they ganged up on him and were threatening him. You'd drive over a bunch of assh*les, too, if they were threatening the safety of your wife and child. I know I wouldn't have left a single one of them on two wheels.


  16. The SUV from my understanding cut into a large pack of bikes, and then continued to drive within the pack creating a dangerous situation, he refused to merge out of the pack. He was directed to move out of the pack and ended up hitting the guy who brake checked him. it should have ended there the idiot in the SUV then decided to run over everyone or anything in his way. He is lucky to be alive, by the way the riders are no bikies or bikers, they are not a gang or any other thing you might call them. It appeared to be an organised ride disrupted by some idiot in a cage.


    • I don't know how you got your understanding but it you watch all the clip these idiots on their rice rockets were riding like a bunch of A holes in and out of traffic for quite some time. Believe your eyes not what somebody tells you!


    • ORGANIZED rides are usually escorted by an officer or such. One in the front and one in the back is the norm. If this group was truly on an ORGANIZED ride then they should have passed him and any other vehicles they came upon instead of bobbing and weaving in and out of traffic, which again…is NOT the norm during an ORGANIZED ride.


    • Wow. You evidently didn't watch the video. They swarmed on the guy when he stopped. If you had your wife and baby in the car and a bunch of idiots were threatening you, you'd take off, too. I guarantee there wouldn't have been one bike left standing that chose to follow. The clowns on bikes were zipping in and out of traffic and not riding safely. They were creating havoc on the hi-way.


    • bull crap those on the bikes have no right to hold up anyone or direct traffic its obvious you have no clue on traffic laws. the bikes are cutting in and out of traffic splitting lanes not legal in NYS. not signaling lane changes tail gating and cutting off cars. want to do tricks how about some back road, side street, or on a track. not on a public street one in a coma, the other cut up. and his family kids terrorized. and a black eye for every motorcyclist in the country


    • I find it amazing how you can come to that conclusion based on all of the evidence. It seems to me like you are either part of this idiot riding group or just stupid. Put in a situation like his, my actions would be very similar, and definitely be carrying.


      • Fizzer, were you on that ride too? Sounds like you were and are trying to "Make it right" what the poser's did. But you are wrong. In all counts. I ride, been on a lot of different rides, Charity, Memorial, alone and with groups just having fun. That was none of those. That was a bunch of stupid idiotic poser's that think once they get on a wanna be bike they own the road. If you think that the guy in the SUV was in the wrong then you are an idiot also. To tell you the truth, If I was that guy I would have been pissed off and taken out a whole lot more of those idiots.


  17. They are not real bikers ,,, they are posers,, boys on toys ,, crotch rocket riders ,, real bikers would not act like these punks ,,, they are an endangerment to not only themselves, but to all on the public hi-way ,,, they are all over the road ,, the one that brake checked the SUV was in the same lane as the SUV when he come up and passed , and then cut over in front of him and deliberately slowed to almost stop wen they made contact,, did the SUV hit him in the back ,,NO,, the crotch slowed quickly and caused the contact ,, these riders do not know the meaning of road courtesy or riding in formation,, they are an imminent danger to each other ,, its a miracle they don't take each other out,,,


  18. I have to agree. Based on what I've seen in the video this is some of the worst riding I've ever seen. There's several times when they come very close to taking each other down. I do feel sorry for any of the bikers who weren't participating in the aggressive behavior. Some might have just been along for the ride. I also feel sorry for the family in the SUV who were effectively terrorized by the hooligans in this group. This is why I prefer to ride alone or in small groups.


  19. Charity Ride .. I dont think so m More Like 50 + Bikes riding in and out of traffic splitting lanes and riding on sidewalks . No license plates on some of the BIkes Unlicensed riders . They incriminated themselves b y postig it on Youtube . The So called bikerswe re part ofa group that call themselves Hollywood stuntz they disrupt traffic and cause havoc on city streets . I ride and i ride att imes in large groups and Have Never behaved the way these bikers did . Sorry for the injuries to the bikers but maybe Lesson Learned


  20. I've been holding charity rides for ten years and never seen anything so badly disorganized as this so-called charity "ride." As much as I hate to say it, these bikers were absolutely wrong, and instigated the whole thing. Thugs.


    • the guy who was run over was trying to calm the situation and he is now paralyzed – the driver should have called the authorities. – The fact that he used his car as a DEADLY weapon to "get away" is bullshit – there was no violence until he ran oer the biker!!!!!! why can't you people see this?


  21. those bikers know they were in the wrong, they all need to own up to it and they need to pay the medical bills of this man. Those are not bike riders they are all hooligans out looking to cause trouble and get put on you tube for thinking they are cool and bad ass. Absolutely pathetic. Now when I go out riding folks are going to think I'm just like those idiots.Yes they are idiots and if you have broken ribs, legs, or injuries you got off easy for acting like a dumb ass and this is your second chance to actually be a man. Right now none of them are men.


    • regardless of wrong or right – no violence happened until he ran over the biker!!!!!! It would have been smart for the driver to call THE POLICE! instead he runs over indiscriminately and violently a biker who was trying to help calm the situation. The driver needs to be arrested for assault with a deadly weapon!


  22. people like that are what give bikers a bad name, i have rode for many years and after watching the video can see the incident was 100% the fault of the bike gang.


    • theyre not even a real biker gng last time i checked a biker gang rode hogs and harleys not crotch rockets a dirt bike..hence the reaso they did wat they did because a real biker gang wuld have more respect than that ..especially in fronta mother children…really thats fucking pathetic
