Atty: Cop charged in NYC biker case won't testify at grand jury; evidence 'speaks for him'

The lawyer for an undercover police detective arrested in a New York City motorcyclist-SUV melee says the officer no longer plans to testify before a grand jury.

Attorney John Arlia (ahr-LEE'ah) initially indicated that Detective Wojciech Braszczok (VOY'-chek BRAZH'-ahk) wanted to speak to the Manhattan grand jury that's considering indicting him. But Arlia said Monday he's advised Braszczok not to do so "because the evidence speaks for him."

Arlia says he's confident videos and other evidence will show Braszczok never came close to assaulting an SUV driver who was beaten by several other bikers.

Prosecutors say Braszczok still actively participated in the attack by shattering the SUV's back window.

Braszczok is one of several motorcyclists arrested on gang assault charges. The SUV driver isn't charged with any crime.
