Undercover Cop Watched Range Rover Driver Get Beaten
The saga of the Range Rover motorcycle gang attack gets more outrageous with every new detail. Reportedly, one of the bikers in the vicinity of the ruckus was an undercover NYPD officer.
Reports the New York Post:
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.
So this DT didn't come forward until four days later? Allegedly he didn't want to blow his cover. However, he has retained a lawyer.
No one has been charged in the beating of the driver of the Ranger Rover, Alexian Lien. Also, Lien has not been charged with any crime despite running over Edwin Mieses, who is allegedly paralyzed from his injuries, to get away.
