Two motorcyclists have received five years probation for the brutal beating of Alexian Lien in New York City, reports the New York Post.
The high speed motorcycle chase in New York went viral on the internet and received international attention. Exclusive video obtained by WABC TV shows the motorcyclists pulling Lien from his SUV and beating him.
Edwin Rodriguez and Allen Edwards agreed to second degree assault charges in exchange for no jail time. Neither man physically attacked Lien or damaged his SUV.
