A New York undercover detective is charged with two felonies, first-degree gang assault and first-degree assault, in connection with the beating of an SUV driver on September 29. Wojciech Braszczok also faces third-degree criminal mischief.  Braszczok was riding with his motorcycle club at the time of incident.  Prosecutors say the 32-year-old detective was part of the biker mob that beat Alexian Lien, after he was dragged from his Range Rover.  However, Braszczok never hit him, his attorney claimed today.  Here's the AC 360 411 on the incident:
