Police have arrested another man in connection with last week's motorcycle road rage incident.

Craig Wright, 29, is being charged with gang assault, assault and unlawful imprisonment.

Sources say he's one of the bikers caught on video attacking SUV driver Alexian Lien on September 29.

Wright was arrested at his home in Brooklyn Sunday night.

Police are still looking for the men seen in the pictures at left as they continue to search for those involved in last week's assault.


Police say Lien was pulled out of his Range Rover in Washington Heights last Sunday, during an altercation that started on West Side Highway.

Lien was assaulted after his driver's side window was broken.

New video shows Lien on the ground, struggling to get up as he is surrounded by a group of bikers.

This, as a man seen on the video smashing his helmet against the window of the SUV went before a judge Sunday.

Reginald Chance made a crude gesture towards photographers during his court appearance.

The 37-year-old is facing charges of assault and gang assault and is still in police custody.

Police say Chance broke Lien's driver side window, but his attorney says that's all he did, and had nothing to do with the beating.

"My client obviously overreacted in smashing the window, but beyond that, he was not a participant in any assault on that victim. So, we are going to contest those charges vigorously," said Chance's attorney, Gregory Watts.

On Saturday, 35-year-old Robert Sims was arraigned on similar charges. He's believed to have tried to open the door to the SUV while it was stopped on the West Side Highway.

Another biker, Christopher Cruz, was arraigned last week on reckless driving and unlawful imprisonment charges.

He is free on bail.

Biker Edwin Mieses, who was run over by the Range Rover after several motorcyclists surrounded the vehicle, remains hospitalized and may be paralyzed.
