A NYPD cop is arrested for being among the multiple motorcyclists involved in a terrifying attack on an SUV. On September 29, a 5-boro motorcycle ride turned violent when a black Land Rover Range Rover SUV accidently struck a motorcyclist that slowed abruptly on the highway. The incident triggered a desperate car chase that ultimately led to a brutal attack on the driver of the SUV, Alexian Lien.

The shocking incident triggered a race for authorities to identify the bikers responsible for the attack on Alex Lien, including Wojciech Braszczok, the NYPD cop arrested. So far, 7 bikers are facing charges. 28-year-old Christopher Cruz was the biker that slowed in front of Alexian Lien and has been charged with reckless driving. 35-year-old Robert Sims is accused of stomping on Alexian Lien. Sims surrendered on Friday and faces gang assault charges. 

Reginald Chance, 37, was the biker on video seen smashing his helmet against the SUV's window. Chance was also the biker that was knocked over by Lien's SUV in an earlier attempt to surround Lien. Chance rode his motorcycle with a suspended license. What's more, Chance has criminal record involving marijuana and attempted criminal possession of a weapon. 

Craig Wright, 29, and Clinton Caldwell, 32, also faces multiple charges including first-degree gang assault. Wright allegedly stomped on Alexian Lien at least twice after he was pulled out from his SUV. Finally, 31-year-old James Kuehne turned himself in following the motorcycle assault.

NYPD undercover detective Wojciech Braszczok has been charged with first-degree gang assault, first-degree assault, and third-degree criminal mischief. Braszczok was off-duty at the time of the incident. According to the prosecuting attorney Samantha Turino, Braszczok had broken the passenger-side rear door and shattered its window.

"It should be noted that the 2-year-old child of (Lien) was in the backseat at the time the defendant was committing these violent acts," said Turino. However, Braszczok's lawyer, John Arlia, claims that Wojciech Braszczok was never more than 12 feet from victim Alexian Lien.

According to media reports, 32-year-old NYPD undercover detective Wojciech Braszczok is a New York police veteran of at least 10 years. Braszczok's lawyer, John Arlia, says Braszczok is a dedicated officer that has infiltrated multiple criminal organizations in his role as an undercover detective. What's more, Arlia says that Braszczok does not have a criminal record. 

While reports on Braszczok's involvement are mixed, it is clear that NYPD cop Brazczok had attempted to conceal his involvement in the SUV attack. Wojciech Braszczok did not inform his supervisors that he would participate in the large group ride until two days after the incident occurred. In Braszczok's initial story, the undercover NYPD detective denied ever being at the scene of the crime. A day later, Braszczok admitted to being at the scene, but denied any involvement in the assault.

Wojciech Braszczok claimed that he was forced to make the difficult decision to not step in and risk revealing his identity as an undercover law enforcer. CNN reports that Braszczok is also a father of two. To learn more about Wojciech Braszczok, the NYPD arrested, please watch the video below:
