NEW YORK (AP) -- Another biker is under arrest in connection with a mob attack on an SUV driver during a motorcycle rally in New York City.

Kaliq Douglas was charged Friday evening with gang assault. Police say the 28-year-old Brooklyn man was among a group of bikers who chased an SUV for miles after a Sept. 29 encounter on a Manhattan highway.

Amateur video shows the bikers forcing the SUV to halt then surrounding it on foot. The driver says he feared for his life and plowed through the crowd, running over and gravely injuring one motorcyclist.

Bikers gave chase, then pulled the driver from the vehicle and beat him.

Several riders have been arrested, including an off-duty police officer.

Douglas was in custody. It wasn't clear if he had a lawyer.
