Jeremiah Mieses, known as Jay Meezee in rap circles, has been identified as the man who was allegedly hit by Alexian Lien during the terrifying road rage incident that happened in Manhattan on September 29, reports CBS Boston.

In the incident, depicted in a viral video, a group of bikers called the Hollywood Stuntz attempted to intimidate a driver, Lien, who was out for a Sunday drive with his family. It all turned ugly when Lien panicked, fearing for his family’s safety, and ran over a biker (Mieses). Mieses, according to his family, now lies in a coma in a New York hospital with numerous broken bones and possible paralysis. The rest of the gang followed the Lien for about 80 blocks until they were able to catch up with him and physically assault him.

Here’s what you need to know about Mieses:


1. His Wife Says Her Husband Was Only Trying to Help

Dayana Mieses has told CBS Boston that her husband only got off his bike during the initial altercation to help another biker who had been knocked over.

Only one man has been arrested in relation to the incident, 28-year-old Christopher Cruz (pictured above, slowing down in front of the Range Rover), who cops say was the source of all of the trouble.

But according to the Boston Globe, Mieses was a “habitual traffic offender”:

Though Mieses is a Massachusetts resident, he has never had a valid Massachusetts driver’s license for a passenger vehicle and has never applied for a motorcycle license, the Registry of Motor Vehicles said. Registry records show that Mieses applied for a learner’s permit in 1999 and 2000, but that he never obtained a full license because he failed to pay fines imposed after he was ticketed for speeding in Lawrence in 1999. … Since 1999, he has been ticketed by police 16 times …. In June, the Registry notified the National Driver Register that Mieses was a habitual traffic offender whose right to drive in Massachusetts was revoked until 2017, records show.

Comments on the church’s Facebook page were sympathetic to the condition of Jeremiah Mieses, but other’s on the church’s official website were less forgiving.

  1. Beating up skinny Asian dudes in front of their families is some incredibly Christlike behavior. I bet Edwin Mieses is glad that he raised his son to be a God-fearing Believer. Seriously, maybe he should have thumped his son’s ass instead of his Bibles.
