The New York Range Rover driver who went on yesterday to be end up being beaten by a pack of motorcyclists has today been identified as Alexian Lien.
Alexian Lee, 33 who in yesterday’s assault went on to experience beat marks and cut lacerations has gone on to tell that he fought for his life as he feared the onslaught of oncoming motorcyclists who he argues were navigating the terrain recklessly.
The by now widely viewed video has gone on to evoke widespread condemnation of the gang whilst others have wondered why Lien didn’t simply call authorities or as some have wondered he was game to take on the motorcyclists.
Sitting in the front seat of the family Range Rover was Lien’s wife, Roslyn Ng and their five year old daughter.
Since been treated and released for his injuries, authorities have gone on to tell no other injuries were reported and to date no arrests have been made. That said authorities are said to be closely studying the tape and conducting an investigation of the incident.
Lien, director of an e-commerce firm, has not been charged by police.
Video of the incident went on to mysteriously surface this morning after purportedly being posted by a biker, under the name GIXXARDR on Liveleaks, from Melbourne, Australia. GIXXARD goes on to claim a biker was killed, which police have said is not true.
Since the video’s posting commentators have piled on to respond with an overwhelming number of respondents taking the Range Rove driver’s side.
Told various users: ‘I would do exactly the same thing. They’re intimidating him and he’s probably fearing for his life.’
Another user goes on to offer the driver was simply acting in ‘self defense,’
‘Did you see the biker break (sic) check him in the beginning. This poor guy was running for his life from the start.’
Another user goes on to also offer it was ‘justifiable’: ‘Only a fool would stick around to be pulled out of his car and lynched by 100 bikers.’

I’m not defending the actions of the diver of the SUV by any means, but these giant packs of idiots on bikes are a danger and a menace. They are constantly hauling ass through my neighborhood in The Bronx with ZERO regard for anyone. They run stop signs, stop lights, speed and act like jackasses. I’m just waiting for the day when one of these morons kills a kid or some random person just trying to go about their normal lives.
I think cellphones are tailor-made for situations such as this. If the RR driver felt threatened, he could have called the cops. I guarantee the offending motorists would ride away in a heartbeat once they hear sirens approaching. Either way, this appears to be a case where everyone was on their worst behavior.
Granted the motorcycle pack acted like a pack in heat but one wonders why the driver themselves didn’t simply resort to calling authorities? Was the driver thinking they could play some action hero too…??
