A grand jury indicted 11 bikers, including an off-duty undercover New York City police detective, over the headline-grabbing, helmet-cam videotaped clash with an SUV driver, CNN reported.

NYPD detective Wojceich Braszczok was formally charged with gang assault, criminal mischief, riot and more in the 14-count indictment Friday in connection with the September 29  road-rage melee between a large group of bikers and SUV driver Alexian Lien, CNN added.

TheBlaze has reported extensively on the incident, during which Lien's SUV bumped a motorcycle that had slowed in front of it during a biker rally on a biker rally on a New York City highway. Fellow bikers surrounded and converged on Lien, who was with his wife and two-year-old daughter. Lien fled, running over a biker who was left paralyzed.

Motorcyclists chased Lien’s SUV, trapped it on a Manhattan street, smashed the vehicle's windows, pulled him from the seat, and attacked him. Lien was treated and released from a hospital and has not been charged.

Prosecutors say Braszczok is on video allegedly using his fist to bash in the rear window of Lien's SUV and kick it, CNN added.

Here's a report from WPIX-TV in New York:
