    O'REILLY: Thanks for staying with us. I'm Bill O'Reilly. In the "Is It Legal" segment tonight, three hot topics beginning with a horrendous story here in New York City.


    On Sunday, on the Westside Highway, a group of motorcycle thugs attacked a family of three driving in an SUV. Dozens of motorcycles were involved and they literally attacked the vehicle.

    Taking off their helmets and smashing in, guy then zooms away. And after it was all over, they caught up with him again. The father was injured and a number of the perpetrators were hurt as well.


    Here now are Attorneys and Fox News Analysts, Kimberly Guilfoyle and Lis Wiehl. So, pick up the story from there. The guy gets hurt, --


    O'REILLY: -- the driver of the car. Cops come -- I guess somebody called 911 and they photographed the damn thing. So, what's the upshot.

    WIEHL: Well, one person, and only one person has been arrested for reckless endangerment and a bunch of other misdemeanor charges. With the reckless endangerment, he's looking at seven years. But the only --

    O'REILLY: That's one of the motorcycle thugs.

    KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE, FOX NEWS LEGAL ANALYST: Christopher Cruz, 28 years old.

    WIEHL: Right. They got him. Now, the rest of them are harder to get because the motorcycle guys were wearing, you know, --


    -- covered helmets to cover their faces.

    O'REILLY: Yes.

    WIEHL: And look here -- if you look closely, you'll see that many of the license plates, they don't license plates. This, by the way, this footage that we're getting, --

    O'REILLY: Yes.

    WIEHL: -- came on YouTube, posted by one of the bikers. So, that actually should --

    O'REILLY: They took the footage.

    WIEHL: One of them did. So, that should actually help the cops in finding more --

    O'REILLY: Do we know why they attacked this car. I mean, this is a young family with a two-year-old. Why would they bother the car.

    WIEHL: A man, a wife and his two-year-old daughter. It looks like -- what we understand from the police is that they were on their way to a big event that was called the Hollywood Stunts down in Midtown, down in Times Square.

    They were diverted from police from doing that. The police didn't want them coming there because they've done it year after year after year - -


    WIEHL: -- with much -- you know. So they were mad, they came back, they swarmed around this guy --

    O'REILLY: So, we don't know why they chose him.

    WIEHL: No, we don't know why they chose him. No.

    GUILFOYLE: There was allegedly like cutting off of somebody, so that started the altercation.

    O'REILLY: Uh-huh.

    GUILFOYLE: It's basically road rage on steroids. And so, on Sunday, I was literally on the Westside Highway, in this area, they were proceeding northbound.

    I was trying to turn into Chelsea Pierce where all the parents go in for birthday party. These guys blocked the intersection, they were getting off their bike, they were talking.

    They didn't care. We passed through three lights, obstructing traffic. And this was after they had been --

    O'REILLY: So, they were causing trouble all day.

    GUILFOYLE: All over.


    Like my little kid said, "Mom, look at the bad guys."

    O'REILLY: All right. Now, I heard some nitwit lawyer on the Fox News Channel earlier saying that the guy in the car could be charged.

    WIEHL: Absolutely not going to happen.
