A video has captured a violent confrontation between a gang of bikers and the driver of an SUV in New York City.
NBC New York reported a father, his wife and his 2-year-old were driving in a Range Rover when a dispute with a large group of bikers escalated to severe road rage that left the 33-year-old SUV driver with a black eye and cuts to his face.
Hundreds of bikers were in New York on Sunday for an event called Hollywood Stuntz; however, the New York Times reported the city hadn't authorized the group ride. Various infractions lead police to arrest about 15 people and confiscate 55 motorcycles, disrupting the event and scattering motorcyclists, according to the Times.
One group of bikers driving around the city encountered a man police identified as Alexian Lien, who was driving his Range Rover with his family on the Henry Hudson Parkway at about 2 p.m. Video footage posted by one of the bikers shows the motorcycles surrounding the Range Rover and slowing down, before the SUV bumps one of the bikes from behind.
One biker told the New York Times Lien sped up and yelled profanity.
However, police told ABC News the bikers slashed a tire on the Range Rover, after which the SUV fled, hitting a biker as it sped away, and the scene erupted into a chase. The last of the video footage shows the SUV stopped at a red light while two bikers smash the windows.
Police told NBC the bikers pulled Lien from the vehicle and beat him up. He was later treated in hospital and released without any charges. The biker who was run over suffered broken legs, according to the New York Times.
