undercover New York police detective pleaded not guilty in a Manhattan courtroom Wednesday to charges of gang assault, assault and criminal mis

An undercover New York police detective seen on video smashing the back window of an SUV during an attack by a pack of angry motorcyclists pleaded not guilty in a Manhattan courtroom Wednesday to charges of gang assault, assault and criminal mischief.

Police had initially arrested Detective Wojciech Braszczok, 32, on charges of riot and criminal mischief. Braszczok's lawyer, John Arlia, said the new charges were not supported by the video, which showed that the officer wasn't part of the assault on the SUV's driver, but had kicked the vehicle's door and a back window that was already broken.
Bail was set at $100,000. Braszczok is expected to testify before a grand jury on Friday.

On Tuesday, Det. Braszczok was seen on a newly obtained video banging on the rear window of the SUV. Driver Alex Lien, who was beaten by numerous motorcyclists in the Sept. 29 incident, was then seen being pulled out of the car as the undercover officer rode off, the sources said.
Braszczok surrendered to police on Tuesday, accompanied by his attorney.
The video is not the one that has been widely distributed on YouTube, but has been reviewed by investigators, the sources said. It was recorded by a bystander using his iPad. It's not clear when the video surfaced but investigators learned of it late Monday.
The detective had originally been defended by officials as a deep undercover officer who failed to act in defense of the motorist because that might have unmasked him. But when the new videotape surfaced those officials felt duped, sources said.

The detective already had been criticized for waiting until Wednesday, Oct. 2 to come forward and acknowledge he was present at the scene.
Authorities have so far charged five men in connection with the assault on Lien.
They released photos Tuesday of more people who may have been involved in the brawl, and asked anyone with information to get in touch with New York Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or at the Crime Stoppers website.

I would sentence all of them to the toughest most over crowded jail in the country. If you want to beat on people let's put you with other people who that like to do the same.
