NEW YORK (AP) -- New York police have detained a second suspect in an encounter in which a man driving with his family was chased and beaten by a group of motorcyclists, and at one point ran over one of the bikers.
On Tuesday morning, police filed reckless endangerment charges against a motorcyclist accused of instigating the Sunday encounter. Police say the second person in custody hasn't been charged yet with any crime.
An Internet video shows the bikers surrounding and stopping the SUV on Manhattan's West Side highway.

Police say other motorcyclists then chased the SUV for miles before stopping it, hauling the driver out and beating him.
