This combination of undated images released by the the New York City Police Department shows a man wanted for questioning in regards to an assault on Sept. 29, where dozens of bikers stopped a Range Rover SUV on a highway, attacked the vehicle, then chased the driver and pulled him from the car after he plowed over a motorcyclist while ...

 

NEW YORK (AP) — A motorcyclist accused of triggering a bloody confrontation between bikers and an SUV driver in New York City has been arraigned on gang assault charges. But his lawyer says the motorcyclist's role has been unfairly overstated.

Reginald Chance is being held on $75,000 cash bail after his arraignment Sunday.

Police say the bikers dragged the man from his vehicle after he ran over one of them while fleeing an earlier confrontation.

Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Samantha Turino says Chance didn't participate in the beating but set it in motion by breaking the motorist's window.

Defense attorney Gregory Watts acknowledges Chance broke the window but says he then left the scene. He says it's wrong to charge Chance with participating in a gang assault and he will "hotly contest" those charges.
