NEW YORK (PIX11) – Another member of the NYPD has come forward, admitting he was part of the group of bikers who would brutally beat NYC dad Alexian Lien following a road rage incident on the West Side Highway.

In this case however, the biker is not an undercover cop but a member of the Internal Affairs Bureau, DNAinfo reported Thursday.  It is not clear what role Matthew Rodriguez, 28, had in the incident, nor why he decided to wait until a few days ago to admit he was there.

Rodriguez, a 5-year veteran, is apparently still on the job and has not yet been charged with any wrongdoing, according to his lawyer.
