Undercover NYC Detective Arrested for Role in Assault of Motorist’s Car


An undercover New York City police detective was arrested in connection with the assault of a Credit Suisse vice president after the victim was chased by motorcyclists through Manhattan, reports the Wall Street Journal. Wojciech Braszczok, 32, was charged with riot and criminal mischief. Braszczok allegedly was off-duty and among the bikers seen on a video pounding on a Range Rover in which Alexian Lien, 33, his wife, and his 2-year-old daughter were sitting.

The detective can allegedly be seen on one video striking and breaking the SUV’s hatchback window, contradicting what he previously told NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau investigators about his involvement in the altercation. The attack followed a vehicular chase along Manhattan’s West Side after Lien’s vehicle struck one of several motorcyclists who had swarmed his Range Rover on the Henry Hudson Parkway.
