Motorcyclists Claim They Had No Part In Brutal SUV Driver Beatdown

Motorcyclists Claim They Had No Part In Brutal SUV Driver Beatdown

(Ben Yakas) At the end of September, a group of motorcyclists were accused of brutally beating an SUV driver who collided with at least one biker. Altogether, 11 motorcyclists (including one undercover police officer) have been charged and indicted for the incident; all but one of them are facing gang assault charges and potentially lengthy prison sentences. Now two of the motorcyclists are speaking out, and both say they were in the wrong place at the wrong time and had nothing to do with the beatdown.

"When they were attacking him, I was screaming for them to stop and leave them alone because that's not what I wanted to happen," 42-year-old Allen Edwards told NBC. "All I could do was scream. I couldn't get involved because there were so many of them. It happened so fast." Edwards, who has been charged with gang assault, rioting and coercion in the confrontation, was the biker seen banging on SUV driver Alexian Lien's window in the video of the incident (see below).
