NEW YORK (AP) — A law enforcement official says New York City police are investigating whether an undercover officer present at last week's motorcycle rally witnessed a violent confrontation between an SUV driver and bikers and didn't immediately report it.
The law enforcement official told The Associated Press that the officer came forward several days after Sunday's encounter, which was captured on video. The official wasn't authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.
New York Police Department spokesman John McCarthy confirmed that a detective was stripped of his gun and badge pending the outcome of an internal affairs investigation.
McCarthy said internal affairs was also investigating whether any other officers were present.
The confrontation left the SUV driver needing stitches and a motorcyclist possibly paralyzed.
