11 Bikers Indicted in Highway Brawl

NEW YORK (AP) -

A grand jury indicted 11 bikers Friday, including an undercover police detective, on various charges related to a motorcyclist-SUV highway melee.

The indictment says undercover detective Wojciech Braszczok was charged with gang assault, criminal mischief, riot and other counts. Prosecutors say he participated in the Sept. 29 attack by shattering the SUV’s back window.

After the SUV driver bumped a bike that had slowed in front of him, a motorcycle gang converged on the vehicle. The driver, while trying to get away, ran over a biker, then motorcyclists caught up with the driver and beat him.
