Motorcyclist arraigned in NYC biker-SUV brawl

October 6, 2013
Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) — A motorcyclist has been arraigned on assault and other charges in connection with the beating of a New York City man by a gang of angry bikers.

Robert Sims was arraigned Saturday in Manhattan on charges of first-degree gang assault, first-degree assault and third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.

Bail was set at $100,000. An attorney for the 35-year-old Sims did not immediately return a call for comment. There was no listed telephone number for Sims at the address where police said he lived.

A criminal complaint says Sims identified himself to police as one of the bikers depicted in a photograph of the incident wearing a grey backpack and motorcycle helmet emblazoned with the number 78.

Sims was convicted in 1998 of third-degree criminal possession of a weapon.
