Internal Affairs Cop Also Involved in Bike Chase Gang Assault

October 11, 2013 | Andy Cush

Yet another NYPD officer has come forward and admitted he was riding with the group of motorcyclists who chased down and beat a driver last month. Matthew Rodriguez, 28, serves in the internal affairs bureau–ironically, the division of the NYPD devoted to investigating wrongdoing by cops like this one. Rodriguez is the latest to come forward in a string of cops who were involved in the assault, including Wojciech Braszczok, an undercover detective who had surveilled Occupy Wall Street.

No charges have been brought against Rodriguez, and he remains on full duty at internal affairs.
