    Another motorcyclist has been arrested in connection with the violent confrontation a few weeks ago between an SUV driver and a swarm of bikers in Manhattan, officials said. 

    Kaliq Douglas, 28, was arrested and charged with gang assault and assault, police said.

    In the Sept. 28 dispute, several bikers stopped a Range Rover SUV on a highway, attacked the vehicle, then chased the driver and pulled him from the car after he plowed over a motorcyclist while trying to escape, police said. The driver, Alexian Lien, needed stitches after being pummeled by the bikers.

    The motorcyclist who was crushed by the SUV, Edwin Mieses Jr., of Lawrence, Mass., suffered a broken spine and two broken legs.

    Police have arrested several other motorcyclists for their participation in the attack, including an undercover policeman.

    Information on a lawyer for Douglas was not immediately available. His bail was set at $25,000.
