No charges for one biker in melee; second free on bail
Prosecutors are digging for more evidence after deciding Wednesday> not to bring charges against a Queens man arrested by police late Tuesday in connection with Sunday’s bloody motorcycle melee, which led to the beating of an SUV driver in Manhattan.
Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance Jr. said “at this time” his office would not prosecute biker Allen Edwards, 42, of Jamaica, pending further investigation of the case.
Meanwhile, another biker, Christopher Cruz of New Jersey, was freed Wednesday on $1,500 cash bail. Cruz, 28, was accused in a complaint with pulling his motorcycle in front of the SUV driven by Alexian Lien and slowing down in a way that interfered with traffic on the Henry Hudson Parkway.
