A New York City Grand Jury has indicted 11 of the motorcycle gang that participated in the attack upon the Range Rover being driven by Alexian Lien, and also occupied by his wife and child.  (I previously covered this incident over at the my Law of Self Defense blog:  VIDEO: Range Rover Deliberately Runs Over Motorcyclists–Justifiable Self-Defense?)

The ~5 minute video embedded below starts about 1 minute before the first serious interaction between Range Rover, driven by Alexian Lien, and the motorcyclists, and ends in the moments before Lien is physically hauled from his vehicle by multiple assailants and badly beaten.

If you’re not familiar with it, you might take a moment to view at least the first and last minutes of the video, as those are the portions of relevance to this post:

Among those indicted is a New York City Police Detective, Wojciech Braszczok, who was personally charged with gang assault, criminal mischief, riot, and other counts. Prosecutors claim Braszczok took part in the attack by shattering the Range Rover’s rear window. He was off-duty at the time of the attack.

Alexian Lien, the driver of the Range Rover, has not been charged with any crime.
