Cops set to arrest biker thug No. 1 who allegedly ripped a driver out of his car and beat him in front of his family

Police have finally identified the most vicious of the “motor psychos” — the man who allegedly ripped a driver out of his car and beat him in front of his family after a wild chase on the West Side Highway, The Post has learned.
Cops set to arrest biker thug No. 1
Reginald Chance, 38, of Brooklyn, has lawyered up and is expected to surrender by Friday, according to two law-enforcement sources speaking on condition of anonymity.

Chance is the top target from Sunday’s shocking motorcycle road rage attack, an assault that left Alexian Lien, 33, pummeled and bleeding on the pavement as his wife and 2-year-old daughter cowered in their black Range Rover.

Undercover NYPD cop stood by as bikers beat dad
An off-duty, NYPD undercover officer was among the pack of motorcyclists who chased a Financial District family up the West Side Highway — and he stood by as the dad was hauled from his car and beaten, The Post has learned.

The unidentified narcotics officer only came forward Wednesday night, four days after the caught-on-video biker predation, and is described as a motorcycle hobbyist who rides with Front Line Soldiers, a New Rochelle-based group that also counts several other cops among its members, a source said.

Internal Affairs is investigating whether those cops, too, were among the bikers, and whether any of them are also witnesses to the beating that left Internet exec Alexian Lien bleeding on the pavement as his wife and toddler daughter cowered inside their black Range Rover.

Biker's right to drive revoked since 1999

Biker's right to drive revoked since 1999
Before NY road rage, Mieses had dozens of violations

By Douglas Moser dmoser@eagletribune.com

The Lawrence motorcycle rider critically injured Sunday in a wild New York City road rage incident has had his right to drive in Massachusetts revoked since 1999, according to state transportation records.

He also has had dozens of traffic violations, those records show.

Edwin Mieses Jr., 32, was run over by a Range Rover SUV on the Henry Hudson Parkway after a biker he was riding with collided with the SUV. Family members have said Mieses was in a coma after the crash and suffered serious internal and spinal injuries that could leave him paralyzed.

A lawyer for the family, Gloria Allred of Allred, Maroko & Goldberg in Los Angeles, declined to comment yesterday.

Mieses’ learner’s permit to drive a car was suspended in 1999 following a spate of violations in Lawrence, including speeding, failure to stop, attaching improper plates, driving without insurance and driving an unregistered vehicle, according to records from the Registry of Motor Vehicles. He never received a driver’s license for a car or motorcycle, the records show.


A comment on the article

you linked to stated: "Rendering first aid to who? The rider who performed the illegal brake check (and who was cited, not the Range Rover) remained on his bike. No one was hurt at that point. In fact that rider (Cruz) was healthy enough to back his bike up using his legs after the little tire bump."

Have you seen any articles stating that the first rider was never knocked off his bike and moved the bike out of the way himself? If so then there would likely be no excuse for anyone to be in front of the suv to "help". More likely, they were there to cause trouble.

"Urinalists" get stuff wrong
