Third NYPD Officer Admits to Being at Scene of Biker Attack

Internal affairs officer


A third New York Police Department officer has come forward to admit that he was among the bikers involved in the brutal beating of a motorist two weeks ago that sparked national headlines.

Matthew Rodriguez, a 28-year-old Internal Affairs Bureau officer and five-year veteran of the department, quietly came forward to admit that he was among the off-duty police duty officers present at last month's bike incident. It was not clear if Rodriguez was involved in the investigation, but his department is responsible for monitoring wrongdoings by police officers.
