Detective Wojciech Braszczok, 32, turned himself in shortly after the Manhattan district attorney signed off on his arrest. Braszczok allegedly lied to police about his role in the beatdown. Video, a source said, shows Braszczok banging on Alexian Lien's SUV moments before Lien was pulled from the vehicle by the mob of bikers and beaten.

Undercover Police Officer to Be Charged in Gang Attack (Updated)
The New York Daily News reports:
This begs the question of whether Braszczok would have ever been arrested absent the public posting of the video in question. ABC News reports that it was due to new video footage showing the officer breaking the back window of the SUV just prior to Lien being dragged from his car.
