New York road-rage suspect identified in beating of SUV driver

(CBS News) New York City police have identified the man who they believe beat a SUV driver in last weekend's road-rage incident. Even though everyone involved in the attack was captured on high-resolution helmet cam video, police have had a hard time tracking them down.

Law enforcement officials tell CBS News that Reginald Chance is the helmet-wielding man who bashed in the front-side window of an SUV Sunday before allegedly yanking out the driver and beating him in front of his wife and young child.

Chance could turn himself in to authorities as early as Friday.

Also, new video surfaced Thursday of what is believed to be the hours leading up to the chase. Bikers can be seen running red lights, popping wheelies and weaving in and out of traffic on the wrong side of the road.

The confrontation unfolded when one of the bikers appeared to deliberately slow down in front of Alexian Lien's Range Rover. Within seconds, a swarm of motorcyclists surrounded the vehicle, and Lien hit the gas, seriously injuring 32-year-old Jay Mieses.

In a statementThursday, Lien's wife extended her condolences to the Mieses family but defended her husband's actions.

"Our fear for our lives was confirmed when the incident ended with the ruthless and brutal attack on my husband, me, and most importantly, our two-year-old child. We know in our hearts that we could not have done anything differently," she said.

During the chase, the couple called 911 four times. As for the family of the injured biker, they've hired celebrity attorney Gloria Allred and will hold a news conference in New York City on Friday.
