Police are seeking the public’s help to find any of the riders involved in a SUV biker brawl in New York Sunday that ended with the SUV driver beaten and a rider in a coma—most of the violent chase caught on video.
One biker was charged Wednesday, while another was released. “So far no charges have been filed in connection with the assault on the SUV driver, Alexian Lien,” reports CNN’s Pamela Brown.
Some of the motorcyclists involved in the chase appeared last night at a vigil for Edwin "Jay" Mieses, the biker who was seriously injured by Lien's range rover as it was trying to escape the melee.
“Some of Mieses' supporters are upset that the bikers were portrayed as the aggressors in this road fight gone viral - saying charges should be considered against the SUV driver,” Brown says.
The wife of the driver, Rosalynn, released a statement to WABC saying:
"Our plan last Sunday was to celebrate our wedding anniversary by having a nice family day out with our 2-year-old daughter. Unfortunately, we were placed in grave danger by a mob of reckless and violent motorcyclists."

Davis says there is more footage of the confrontation but believes Lien must have been afraid.
“The gentleman was scared. If I was in his shoes, I’d be scared, he says.
Davis also feels the situation could have been settled differently.
“I'm pretty sure the guys weren't aware” there was a two-year-old in the SUV.
