This weekend we learned an undercover NYPD cop was part of the biker group who attacked a man in an SUV after he ran over (and paralyzed) a motorcyclist in NYC.
But now it’s being revealed that he wasn’t the only one playing dress up.
As many as six off-duty cops were among the bikers involved in the shocking attack, all caught on tape by a motorcyclist’s helmet camera. Authorities are said to be investigating the actions of a group of city corrections officers who were also near the attack.
According to DNAInfo:
The NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau is looking into the role of half a dozen off-duty cops who were among the motorcyclists who pulled a man from his SUV and beat him after a high-speed chase up the Henry Hudson Parkway on Sunday, sources said.
Internal affairs has the names of two detectives, one sergeant and three police officers who were either on the highway when motorcyclists confronted Lien, who was driving with his wife and 2-year-old daughter, or witnessed the assault at West 178th Street, according to sources.
It was also revealed that one of the detectives was arrested earlier this year for assaulting his girlfriend.
The cops will likely face disciplinary measures for not coming forward and telling their supervisors that they attended the rally. Meanwhile, the man who released the video taken on his helmet camera is receiving death threats.
According to the Daily Mail:
Kevin Bresloff, of Bellport, NY, has been cooperating with investigators seeking the bikers seen in the video beating Alexian Lien after he ran over a member of the riding group while trying to avoid confrontation. His cooperation has earned threats on his life, he says.
This is getting messy. Do you think the officers should have come forward immediately or helped the man in the SUV?
