NEW YORK (AP) — A biker has pleaded not guilty to assault charges in connection with a mob attack on an SUV driver during a motorcycle rally in New York City.
Kaliq Douglas was arraigned Saturday and released on $25,000 bail.
Police say Douglas was among a group of bikers who chased an SUV on a Manhattan highway, forcing it to halt and surrounding it on foot Sept. 29. The driver says he feared for his life and plowed through the crowd, running over and gravely injuring one motorcyclist.
Bikers gave chase, then pulled the driver from the vehicle and beat him.
A lawyer for Douglas, a 28-year-old Brooklyn man, tells the New York Post (http://bit.ly/1b0Evme ) that amateur video of the encounter doesn't tell the whole story.
Several riders have been arrested, including an off-duty police officer.
